I am going to sell my '99 Eddie Bauer Ford Expedition.Retail KBB value is around $14k and I'll probably list it in the automotive section of the local newspaper.What price could I realistically expect to get if I want to sell it fairly quickly?Thanks.

Hey Jim, I'd start by throwing the KBB figure away. I'm not sure why, but KBB is almost always so far out of the park on the values, it's just laughed at. By the way, I'm an insurance appraiser, and I deal with total losses daily.
I've found NADA to be pretty reasonable, but I'd look at edmunds.com. That'll give you a dealer price as well as a private owner price. And they're usually pretty accurate.
Good luck selling it.
