Hi! I found a 1993 Steinway Model B for sale for 25k. Is this a good deal? Single owner, regularly tuned, and in one house (minimal moves). The owner had daughters that used to play and said she doesn’t know much about pianos. Any specific issues I should look out for? Thanks!

If you get a technician to check it out and it's ok, that's a very good price.

This could be a good buy... unless it isn't.

If it is in good condition seems way low based on the prices I’ve seen. Could be a great deal so move quickly and get a technician to check it out.

Condition is everything..... It could be excellent, and if the piano is in excellent condition it's a great buy. If the piano is in poor condition it's not a good buy.
