Originally this sectional probably cost over $10,000; however, it is considered used furniture now. Still, sectionals are very popular now.

Your asking price on Craig's List should be $4500-6500.

I truly wish I had better news.

In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20%-50% more than retail values.

Just learned that my wife bought it for $3500. What would you sell it for?

These are very expensive now, if new.

Considering the original price was $3500, the current Craigs List asking price should be $1800-2200.

You might also place an ad on your local nextdoor.com site if you have one.

Positive, please.

Kind regards,

Doris

She says she got it at a half off sale. Was $7000 and she got it for $3500.

Although popular, it is still used furniture. You can ask $2600-3200 max.

Kind regards,

Doris
