The price is right for this company and the age of the piano. There aren't going to be too many things you can look for yourself beyond the playing action of the piano. Check to make sure no keys stick and they all move freely. Judge the tone of the piano when playing. Check inside to see if you view any rust or broken parts. Ask how often the owner has had it tuned. Annual tuning is recommended. If they haven't had it regularly maintained then you may want to have a piano tech come out and inspect it before buying.
