It’s impossible IMHO to give a price for a basic site. Too many variables. It’s like saying what’s the price for a car.
Well, you can spend a few hundred dollars for a junker or millions on a NASCAR vehicle.
If you’ve got a 5 mile commute and you don’t care what people think of you, the junker should work fine. If you’re going for a trophy, better pony up.
If you’re trying to figure out what to charge, one way to do it is to look at how many hours you expect to work on the project and decide what your time is worth per hour.
Then double it, because you’re going to put in way more time than you think.
If the customer wants SEO, social media integration, a blog, an email newsletter, a mobile friendly version, that’s all fine, but it’s also all extra.
