Selling Houses Not Pianos

Realtors® sell homes. But occassionally we deal with other things to help buyers and sellers. Lately those items are pianos. Three of them...three solutions.

 

One is free just come and pick it up.

Free Piano

 

 

The second one the buyer was delighted it was included in the sale of the house. The seller was relieved not to have to move it.

Home piano

 

 

The third is

For Sale

Piano for sale

'Boston Grand Piano GP-178

Beautiful, well maintained, gently used, climate-controlled, Mahogany Polished, Boston GP-178 Grand Piano and piano bench, purchased new 20 years ago for $19,000.  Selling due to need to downsize in move to smaller quarters.  A piano technician, well known at Peabody, has tuned the piano twice a year since its purchase. The current price for a new one is over $34,000.  Although we have seen the same model in Black Satin finish, advertised on the internet for $17,999, we have our piano priced at $12,500, but will consider best offer. Purchase and pick-up would have to be completed by May 8, 2019.''

 

Interested in the  free piano or the one above? I will put you in touch with the owner.

Good luck with the sale of the piano! Tuned twice a year, kept in a climate-controlled room - I bet someone scoops that up.

Good morning, Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland contacting piano tuners would be where you'll find those who are looking for a Grand Piano.... we had a black laquer baby grand and there was not a problem selling it .... our piano tuner had a customer who had a spinet and he wanted to buy a baby grand....

Good morning Margaret. After years of moving a baby grand piano from place to place, it stayed when we sold our last home. And, the buyer played! Enjoy your day!

It's a beautiful piano Margaret! The girls play (a bit) - it's astounding how quickly they can teach themselves with the help of an online tutorial. We will likely have to leave our piano behind, too, when we move however. Good luck to this seller!

Hi Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - a very accomplished pianist would be very particular and that looks like the type of Piano this is.  Also, should have a specialized piano mover.

Grant Schneider Anyone buying an instrument of this quality would have to have a professional mover.
