Pentax K3 Value?

So very very close to pulling trigger on a Sony a7iii at a very good price but need to be able to recoup some costs.

I have a very gently used Pentax K3 with a 5,399 shutter count. Original box.
Did not come with a kit lens as I bought body only. Do have an old K100d that used as backup backup.

Have a 18-55 kit lens, a 50mm 1.8, and a Sigma 30mm 1.4 EX. Primarily shot the primes.

So trying to get a value for either the camera or camera with lenses.

Also forgot, do have a K3 grip with extra battery. Non-Pentax brand but work flawlessly.

I suggest reading the sold forum and eBay completed sales and comparing their results. This changes fast sometimes.

Indeed, things tend to move quickly. I would recommend making a Marketplace listing toward the high end of your price range, as you can always be open to offers.

As a sort of variation on this, I like to treat marketplace listings as something like reverse auctions: list at the high end of your expected range, and rather than soliciting offers, drop the price $20 or so every few days with bump-posts until someone decides it is a good deal for them. The marketplace still decides the value, but since the low-ballers are always out there, you can still decide to accept an offer somewhere along the way. It's mostly a question of how much of a hurry you are in to sell.

The above comments are good advice. It should be noted that the listed price is often higher than the negotiated sale price. It is highly unusual for sellers to update the listing if they were talked down.
