How to sell an old wooden swing set, how much should I ask? EDIT w photo

It is sitting in my yard wasting away. It definitely needs a paint job but I am not going to do it. I just want to get it out.  So I am assuming I should take photos of it and put it on Craigslist and take it apart in pieces. 

How much do you think I should ask for it?

It has a winding slide on the side, a rock "wall", 2 swings, a glider, and a little tree house thing. Nothing is broken but the finish is badly peeled and faded.

We payed around $800 on sale several years ago. The brand is Big Backyard.

(The glider is up on top and there is another swing, my hubby moves them to cut the yard.) I would put them down for the photo when selling. lol but not right now cause I am being lazy.

I have no idea. I'm so bad at that lol. I'd guess $100? Those things sell for double, right?

I would paint it and make sure its scrubbed clean, then you could really make a decent amount for something like that since it has so much, a good $300-400, since they are like $800 new.

Sigh, I really don't want to have to do any work on it, but I probably could make a lot more off it, huh. :/

I'd take a look at similar items on Craigslist and then price it to move. Someone will be willing to clean it up.
