How much does a 2003 NY Steinway Model S worth?
« on: June 10, 2017, 05:23:47 PM »
Dear all, can anyone please suggest how much a 2nd-hand New York Steinway model S (made in 2003) would worth? What is a fair price to buy or sell? Thanks!

It depends too much on the condition of the piano -- action, wrist board, strings, dampers, sounding board, case, everything -- to be able to come even within an order of magnitude on a price without evaluating the instrument in person.

I've seen grands in that class and age which you'd have to pay to get rid of.  I've also seen grands in that class which are a lot older which are worth upwards of $50,000 to over $100,000.

Your best bet is to work with a competent technician -- who has no financial stake in the sale -- to arrive at a price.

You could try looking through the results of previous sales of Piano Auctions of London to see what similar instruments have fetched there. I dare say there are other sites with similar data.

one of good ways to find an accurate price is to check comparable models

you could try ebay here:

or klaviano here:
