in my area, a single phase unisaw will go for 800-1200 dollars. have seen many listed for more,but they stay on craigslist for a lot longer. see a lot of older unisaws with the old jet lock fence system for 400-700 dollar range.

Questions like this show up so often, I posted my thoughts in blog post:
Used Power Tool pricing
It’s written from a buyers standpoint, but it should help. There is Unisaw pricing as major example. :)

In AZ, 5HP Unisaw are not common, but yet not rare; see 1 or 2 for every ten listings with 3HP?
Might be able to get an extra $100-200 for the larger motor. Without the splitter and motor cover (which cost $100-$200 to replace); the larger motor value disappears? Having an original Delta mobile base adds $50-90 to resale value. Newer left tilt Unisaw are not as common in used market, and some buyers will pay extra for that one feature.

Can easily earn/lose a couple hundred in value depending on supply and demand at time of sale?
It’s turning to summer here, and wood working activity slows due heat and lack of winter visitors; so our used tool pricing is soft, IE it’s a buyers market. An incomplete newer left tilt 5HP saw be lucky to earn $1000 now? But in our winter market, probably sell for several hundred more. Assuming you have time to wait for sale.

PS – You will know if it’s too expensive by (lack of) responses, just like you will know if price is too low by number of responses (3-4 in 1st 24 hours).

Best Luck.
