any comments / recommendations / warnings about who to sell a macbook pro to?

We have a 2011 MacBook pro with i5 2.3Ghz and 500GB hard drive.  Works fine, my daughter just bought a newer / faster one recently.

This still seems to have value.  

While I've sold things on ebay, I am leery of selling something like this via ebay.  I (wrongly?) fear the buyer complaining about this or that and paypal taking back the money on an unwarranted complaint.

Does anyone have any good / bad thoughts on sites like roostr.com, gazelle or any of the others?  It does have a couple dings on the case but otherwise works fine.  With them I fear them giving me a price then saying oh, it's not good condition, it's more like poor and I get paid a fraction of what I expect.

Any of my paranoia unwarranted?

Have you thought of using local online classified ads?

Also, you should be able to put conditions on the sale of the MacBook on ebay.

unwarranted paranoia, people dont expect pristine used item unless you stated that the item was never used.
once u display photos and honestly express in the description, people if they are buying it will generally accept is condition, providing you were truthful

thanks guys.

I see that ebay / sell myself would get much more $$ than those buying services, so I'll go that route and cross my fingers on having a problem.
