I would love to work with a seller who has a great home that they would sell quickly. My definition is a good asking or listing price would be one that is 10-20% less than the market demand at the time of sale. Market demand is determined by what buyers would be willing to buy at that time. SO your realtor you would work with should be able to get with you and present a market trend analysis for your property and then you should choose the lower end pricing scale to move it quickly.
The market trend analysis shows price trends over the past twelve months, and the amount of time property is on the market before sold. All this in turn lets you know if your property is in a buyer or seller market for your neighborhood. If in a buyer market, you will need to go with a lower price for a quicker sale.

People will want to know about the school system, too.
Wondering why you need an agent? We have access to most of the information needed to price and sell the property. Plus, once it is in MLS, agents throughout the area will know about the property and can provide that info to people they are working with who are potential buyers. Remember as a for sale by owner, if you cannot show the property, it is in a sense, off the market.
Please do not try to sell your home yourself by soliciting price quotations over the internet! Of course, you have not furnished enough information for anyone to give you any guess at the value of your house, but that does not matter. Get together with a local real estate professional who market your house at the correct price and represent you in the process of the sale. The very tone of your question makes me fear that you are opening yourself to a slick operator who will under price your house, sell it to a friend or buy it himself in order to make a personal profit at your expense.
Please get professional help. If you do not know a Realtor that you can trust, ask friends and relatives for a suggestion. Good luck!
