  • Flip of the Week: An $80 Keyboard Flip


This keyboard took almost three weeks to sell, which is about average when it comes to selling a keyboard of this quality. It’s not a high-end keyboard by any means, but it’s reliable. 

I got this keyboard from the local thrift store for $12.99. The photos were shot in front of my fireplace where I usually stage my product photoshoots. I posted the ad listings on FB Marketplace and Craigslist for $80.

Here’s the ad description I wrote for this item:

Profit: ⭐⭐⭐

$67—Three stars. When I first started flipping in the early days, this would have been a solid profit. Once you gain more experience though, your regular profits will be much higher. 


Small and portable, as most keyboards 61-key keyboards are. Five stars.

Time Spent: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Approximately 30 minutes of work. Five stars.


OVERALL: 4.3/5

Overall I’d give it 4.3/5 considering these factors:

  • Time spent: appx. 30 mins
  • Transport: Portable, Easy
  • Profit: $67
