RE: Geographic area have a big impact on sales price?
Why bother? Do you have an idea of the two values you expect you could get? Checking Autotrader, I saw values from 5K to 16K. Not enough cars there to determine if the spread was for perceived value or location. If you think your car is worth 5K in Chicago and $7500 in Dallas or Houston, why not simply place it for auction on ebay with the reserve set where you want it. If it doesn't sell, it won't cost you much to determine that you're asking to much. OTOH, it may go for more then you expect. Autotrader is a similar outlet. Place it in there for what you'd like to get and the most you'll lose is the cost of the ad.
You are probably aware of scams whereby the buyer will send you certified funds for more then the car is worth asking you to simply refund the difference. These scams appear most often on vehicles sold over the internet since it's available to losers worldwide. Good luck on the sale.
