Any suggestion for selling price on craigslist?

Hello. I am new here.
I have a Pentax K-r and a Canon Xsi.
I am trying to sell my K-r with kit lens on craigslist.
long story short.. I hate to sell it but my husband is retiring soon.

Bought in last Feb and have the box with everything.
Any suggestion for posting price for K-r with kit lens? and what if i include 31mm lmt lens?
I didn't use it much.

Please help me out. Thank you everyone.

I think your best bet would be to take a look through the marketplace archives here, and see what the K-r and 31mm have been selling for recently: Sold Items -

The 31mm limited is a high value lens, much higher than the price of a used K-r. I suggest you sell it separately to get the maximum on your lens.
By the way, no, I'm not interested, I live in Europe...

I'd talk this over again with your husband! In $ terms selling your camera will make no difference to his retirement.

You should definitely post those here on the Marketplace forum. Not sure how many people local to you would appreciate Pentax gear, depends on where you live. Everyone here knows the 31 is a good lens..
