Curious what your piano is worth? We do appraisals!
We will do a thorough “market value” evaluation of your piano so you know it’s monetary worth for resale, insurance and estate issues. We also will identify potential problems and necessary corrective actions to maximize all efforts.
Our appraisal is a complete “market value appraisal” meaning that you get three different dollar amounts documented:
1) Retail Market Value: This is the amount the piano would sell for in a dealer’s showroom providing everything is showroom-ready both mechanically and aesthetically.
2) Used Party Market Value: This amount is what you would price it for on, for example, Craigslist or other advertising you may want to use to sell it in the used piano market.
3) Wholesale Market Value: This amount is what a piano dealer would pay buying directly from you at “wholesale” so as to prep it for resale.
We document everything on our letterhead for authenticity as being from a bona fide piano dealership. You receive two documents, one that has all three amounts for your personal use (not to show a potential buyer) and a second document that shows the “retail market value” that you can show the potential buyer that will enable you to begin sales negotiation at a higher justifiable price. If the potential buyer were to make an offer, you have all three values to consider as you negotiate and this will help you make a fair and wise counter offer that will lead to a mutually satisfying transaction.
The cost is $85 for appraisals within the Denver-metro area.
