These are the items:

Hasselblad 500 C/M body
Hasselblad Distagon 3.5/60 lens
Hasselblad 1:2.8 80mm lens

The 500C/M + 80mm f/2.8 in fair condition should be in the $900-$1300

Very optimistic. Here such would be lucky to fetch ~$700.

Browsing ebay and craigslist for other areas supports that as well.

(There are some "Buy it now" sales at higher prices - no evidence of movement, however).

That is a best case scenario for all of that stuff.

I would say the best bet would be to cherry pick the entire lot and get whatever he can from B&H or KEH, and then put the rest of the stuff up on Craigslist with reasonable low, OBO listings.
As a last resort there would be the good old garage sale.
