    We just upgraded to a Mansfield and wish to sell our Heritage. Only used for two seasons. Is in great shape. No issues. Have no idea what to ask. Any ideas? Thank you.

    Perhaps 50-60% of original price? Perhaps only two years might bring more but most folks when shopping for used want as low of a price as they can find. So, you might start out with 75% of what you paid for the stove and that would give you a bit of room to dicker.

    At two years old, if it's still looking great inside and out, I would ask about $2K with maybe 1800 being bottom line.

    Whatever price you ask I recommend including in your ad the current new price from your local dealer. Most people have no idea how expensive these wood stoves have gotten.

    When considering what % of original price to ask, instead consider % of todays price since that is what is important and of course is higher. Something like this I expect to pay half of new cost. The heritage hasn't changed in quite a while so the age of the stove is not as important as the condition. If it is a painted model and the paint has weathered as horribly as mine has then a fresh coat would be cheap and add lots of appeal. Also, replacing the 60$ baffle board would help the stove look as good as new.

    One of these coming years I will be in your shoes. Sell soon since spring is around the corner and the stove market is crap in the spring.

    Start under 2000$.

    although your to far away for me to be interested in it, I am looking at the hearthstone heritage and was curious why you upgraded.
