Ditto to the message below.. and I would recomend that you call Bill Holt in to discuss the current market and put together a CMA and marketing plan for you! As HF notes, Bill is LOCAL to your area and has high regard here on Trulia.
Look into Bill Holt's background on Trulia, read some of his discussions and responses.
What you need to look for in a Realtor can be found right in your backyard.

I'd recommend talking to a Realtor such as myself, looking at the comparables in the area, setting out a good marketing plan, including the preparation of the property properly for market and pricing it correctly, considering the competition and then going for it. Your future in-laws will not be sorry to see the place go and no one can tell you that the go-go years will be back because they're just around the corner. Your in-laws may be dead before that happens and may live a long life after this point. You never know but I believe that it will take years before we see an upward pressure in the market. We've just got too much work to do to strengthen the economy.
Best of Luck.
Sounds like u need a LOCAL Realtor to assist in determining the most valuable forward thinking game plan considering the situation.
Most would recommend that you interview multiple realtors visit the home for an analysis. Please do not perceive this as an inconvenience to agents as this is the nature of our business. The following blog will provide you with excellent insight as how to choose the agent that is best for you. http://www.trulia.com/blog/rockinblu/2008/12/i_ve_got_my_fin

Sorry to hear about the illness. Lambertville has an 18 month inventory which is calculated by dividing the total available by the number of homes that went "under contract" within the past 30 days. I calculate the inventory levels for all of Hunterdon County for the local Weidel Realtors offices. I happen to work out of the Lambertville/New Hope Regional office, so I really know the area. I also listed and sold a unit in Lamberts Hill, and we have homes listed in Rock Creek Woods and have listed homes in the Woodcrest development. Where are you getting the value of between $650K-$700K from is the important question here? Most (not all) are selling between 80-90% of the "assessed" value. I will certainly provide you with "comps" but I'll need toget a bit ore information. Is the home "in-town" or outside of the downtown area? I'll provide you with whatever information you need in order to make a good decision.
Again, sorry to hear about the illness.
p.s. check out this weeks Beacon.........page 8!
I'm a local Real Estate company Broker/Owner in Flemington (right outside Lambertville). Hunterdon County is doing well this spring and Lambertville is a desirable place to live. Prices have decreased like everywhere else so I don’t know if your home value is current or not.
If you need a market analysis done don't hesitate to call me directly. You can learn more about me and my company at http://www.MillerSalesGroup.com and at our virtual office site at http://www.JustJerseyRealEstate.
Good luck to you,

I'm sorry to hear that your fiance's parents are ill. I suggest that they contact a realtor. Homes sell if they are priced competitively and correctly. The range that you have given is very large. A realtor will be able to help you narrow that range and assist in selling the home.
