I think you have gotten some great thought provoking advice.
You might want to contact a professional appraiser before putting your home on the market. What I have seen in these current market conditions is that a house priced accordingly to the market by a broker, procures a contract, only to have the appraisal come in at 5 - 15% percent under contract.
You may also want to get your home inspected before listing it. This avoids any surprises to you during due diligence AND gives you an edge over other homes currently listed.
