A fair amount is 1/2 the current fair market value (what it would bring in if sold), which is probably the appraised value if the appraisal is recent--so around $229k. To get this done without undue delays or litigation costs, it would be reasonable to take around 10% or so less--so based on what you write, around $200k.
