Default 1970 Martin D 12 20 Value?

I currently own a 1970 Martin D 12 20 which is in fairly good condition, no cracks or malfunctioning parts. I just had a neck rest done on it and the action is now quite low. I've heard prices from $900 to even $1600 for this specific guitar. If anyone can possibly enlighten me with their knowledge of guitars and martin guitars and give me an accurate estimated value for this guitar it would be much appreciated in that I am trying to get rid of it and sell it to trade up!

A search of my usual sources turns up one D12-20, a '69 for $1850.

Like anything else what the market bears in your area unless you are going to sell online. Folks will pay what it is worth to them and the prices you see by searching online usually just get your hopes up .

I bought one around 10 years ago for $650, but it needed a neck set and a couple of braces need re-gluing. So, I have $1150 in it. It's probably worth a bit more, but less than $2000.
