the value of a pool table is decided on whether its a SLATE TOP or regular top and the condition of the GREEN..its very expensive and time consuming to regreen a table as it requires almost totally dismantling it and pulling the bumpers as well then regreen them as well....if they are regular players they will also, carefully scrutinize the bumpers all along the edges to make sure there is no signs of weakness or pulling away etc...also if its regulation size...some are not. Most folks want a SLATE top..and the green absolutely cant have any ripples tears or slices or buldges
Also becuz of the economy out there you wont get top dollar if its in even mint condition.
So now the question will be how much of a sacrifice are you willing to make to get it out of there. Im honestly surprised it was left behind if in really good condition...
You can look at it like selling it at a sacrifice or a win win as it would be no matter what more money than you started with and it will be out.
There is still another thing also...how was it stored was anything placed on top of it...causing warping EVEN SLIGHT unseeable to the eye warping...make sure the table is perfectly leveled when showing it as one of the first things they will want to do is check for warping by rolling a POOL ball not a tennis ball or the like across the top in several areas to see if there is evident warp.
People who want pool tables want one that is in mint to excellent condition, and regulation size...otherwise its now like what you are experiencing just something big they need to break up and toss. Also, the demand may be low for them as it requires a very large room for one to just set up never mind the additional surrounding area for a player to shoot.
