We are looking to purchase a used piano for home use. On Craigslist I have found a Yamaha M500 that was purchased new in 1994. Going to see/play the piano tomorrow. Seller originally posted for $1800, but has now said he would sell for $1000. It looks in excellent condition in photos. If all checks out in person, we will have a technician look at it as well. Any ideas what a reasonable price would be?

As long as your technician (and you) determine it is in good condition, I'd expect the price in my area to be between $1400 and $1600. So $1000 is potentially a good price... but condition is everything.

Thanks for your input. As it turns out, the piano is in excellent condition. Looks practically new and sounds good, too. Well worth the $1000! Such a lucky find.
