I have a Baldwin...

I have a Baldwin Spinet Organ, Model D-300, that is approximately 23 years old. I am moving to a smaller home and will no longer have space for this instrument. I would like to sell it but I have no idea of the current value of the organ. What is a reasonable asking price?

Expert's Assistant: I love the notion of my brother's old guitar having a history and belonging to someone famous. Maybe you have something valuable or historical. Let's find out. Is there anything else important you think the Musical Instrument Appraiser should know?

No, unfortunately, the organ has no historical significance.

My organ is currently in a storage facility and I am unable to forward a picture to you. However, I logged on to the Baldwin website and found a picture of a similar organ. I am attaching that picture for your review. I also have the accompanying bench and the Owner's Guide. I hope that this information will be useful to you.

Thank you,

This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The Baldwin Spinet Organ, has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $1***-**-****.00 if sold at an auction (a local auction ) it would sell for a little less, at around $800.00-900.00, if this were sold in a High End Shop in a larger city it would sell for $1200.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $1200.00

.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is Offerup.com, Varagesale.com, Wanelo.com, www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com and letgo.com. There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
