National wholesale and retail sales figures are documented. There are no accurate depreciation schedules for grand pianos. Wholesale prices increase on each year all new grand pianos, add to this the inflation index.

A DEALER will sell these pianos used for around the same price as the original price from 1985 - 1995. These prices are only after considerable costs to move, tune, recondition and guarantee the instrument. 

The TRADE IN price is 30 to 40% less to allow for mark up, moving, tuning and repairs by the dealer.

And finally, the price asked by a PRIVATE PARTY, that figure is based on the age,  type, grade, rarity of the instrument. The condition is a variable as the buyer and seller must agree on the costs of moving, tuning and repairs.  This is a negotiable factor and the only way to determine that is by looking at the instrument or by ordering a Piano Appraisal.
