Do you have any idea what your piano could cost? If you are looking to sell your piano it could be a good idea to have a proper piano appraising procedure done. Instead of trying to go online and search for the piano model and see what they are going for. Certainly, this second method could garner some results for you. We want to talk about our appraising methods and why they just might help you make a better sale or better decision. Even if you are not selling it may be a good idea to know how much your piano costs. Here are some of the reasons why we say this.
What Type of Documents Do You Have On The Piano?
For the most part, when we are dealing with high-quality instruments you can look at it and you are going to be able to tell outright that this is a high-quality machine. There are some instances where it’s not as easy. In any case, having original documents of where you purchased the piano and all that good stuff is always going to be a plus. Since it’s going to allow us to trace maybe previous owners and other important aspects when trying to appraise a piano.
Why Would I Need To Appraise A Piano I Don’t Want To Sell?

It may be a good idea to get an appraisal even if you are not selling to see if your refurbishment project makes sense. If what you are going to be putting into the piano is a bit more expensive than what it’s worth, then you could have second thoughts about this.
Resale Value of Pianos
Will pianos lose their value over time? Yes, regular pianos are going to lose their value over time. You won’t be seeing the same type of depreciation as you would with cars maybe. Obviously, your piano will devalue less or more depending on its brand and current condition. There are odd instances where we could say that your piano will actually be worth over time. This would be the case if you were to have a special edition piano. If you had a piano that was owned or used by someone famous then you can certainly expect the value of the instrument to go up.
