Well, I have finally decided to go with the Kawai CA63 (after a lot of comparing against the Roland HP305 and the Yamaha CLP308).

Now to my question: the price I have been quoted by my local dealer is $2897 + $100 for delivery + Sales Tax.
Total would come to: $3236.
Does this seem to be a fair price?

Thank you for the help,
Hoppy

Not a bad deal, but not great. I'd ask them to throw in the delivery and set up for free though.

Or alternatively make out the invoice to your out of state sister and waive the sales tax.

For reference, in Spain I'm currently stuck at 2000€ for the same piano (with transportation plus a seat), and if I spent more time I'll probably could get it for 100€ less.

I wouldn't pay the dealer's asking price. He'll surely entertain a lower offer.

The prices-paid thread lists two sales in the US:
$2300 in Wisconsin (including tax)
$2500 in California

As you can see, your dealer's asking price is way too high.
