Hi Stephanie,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help. I've been an appraiser for 28 years, and am the President of the Association of Online Appraisers.

Your piano is still practically new. If it has been regularly tuned and maintained and is in excellent cosmetic and musical condition, your piano's current retail (replacement or insurance) value is approximately $15,000. If you sell it, you can expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount or $6,000, depending on location and actual condition.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you, Stephanie. Please let me know if you'd like me to explain or expand on any of the above, I would be glad to do that.

If you would like to work with me on further questions you might have, it would be a pleasure to work with you again. All you have to do is put my name (Judith) at the beginning of your question.
I need your positive rating! Could you very kindly rate my services (with the stars or "accept" button), at no extra cost to you. Your positive rating is how I am credited for my work. Please click the five stars above, and then click the green button. We can still continue to communicate here on this thread after you do.
Thank you so much!
