I have a brand new sthil ms461 20inch bar. never had petrol never started from day1 bought from Carrs Billingham invoices with it. In excellent condition stored at home in garage since March 2019 wanted a bigger saw but only do average size domestic gardens and don’t need nothing bigger than I already have. What’s is it worth I’m base in Newcastle Tyne and Wear.

Never been run?
No warranty.
Stihl always fuel and oil the saws at the dealership. Then run to max rpm several times,
Before handing it over.
It's sadly now outdated and outperformed by the 462 and 500i.
Still a cracking Saw though.
£500 is a fair price.

Its 12 months since purchase so no warranty 

Manufacture date will be in 2018 so that makes it nearly 2 yrs old,

last one i bought was in May 2018 12 month warranty 25" bar £812 inc VAT

the 461 model is now discontinued

when dealers wanted shut of them when the 462 came out they where discounting them to about £750 with warranty

For the £800 you want for it its a bit steep, and today i would add another £150 and go and buy the 462 lighter, more power and 12 month warranty

A fair price would be £500 - £600 tops but put it on FB market place and you might get lucky as there is always 1 or 2 out there, good luck and i hope you get what you want,

That Saw will probably still be working when many modern saws won't.
It's a classic mate, hold onto it
