Boiler plate (and best answer): Your local realtor can help you get a more fixed down price that is competitive (Interview two agents, or ask for someone that you can trust).

Detailed answer for do-it-yourselfers to get an acurrate idea beyond that of zillow's zestimate (a good starting point, but not the end all):
Head to the county recorder's office or other method of public record keeping. And ask to do a search for the sales in your neighborhood for the last 6 months.

filter through that and see which properties are built on a similar acre lot
filter through that and see which properties are within about a 1sq mile from your home.
filther through that and see which properties are 3 bedrooms

Take the mean of the sales amount.

That will give you a rough estimate of where you can expect your sales price to be (this is baring allowances given that are not recorded in tax/county records, which are only really found in realtor MLS data thanks to the new CARETS rules in California that we passed in the CARETS committee).

As for what to advertise your property: see what is currently active, and you will see an interesting thing, they are a little above that of what sold (GASP!). Adjust from there for your advertised price and Godspeed!
