Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Are you looking for a retail value for insurance purposes? Or a potential resale value?

Has the piano been serviced recently?

potential resale value.
Expert:  jennem22 replied 1 year ago.

Thank you.

Unfortunately, although the list price is quite high, personal resale on these pianos tends to be very low. They occasionally sell for as high as $1,300.00, but most often in the $400.00 - $500.00 range, even in excellent condition.

Part of the problem is being limited to a very local market due to the size and weight.
