    Professional Staging

Prior to the sale, we transform your home into an elevated retail experience. While we have many great services, we are especially proud of our staging and pricing skills. Our teams understand the nuances of staging and know how to create a sale-friendly environment, regardless of whether a home is big or small, old or new, metropolitan or rural. We then price every item in the sale at fair market value. This value is determined from past sales, market trends, as well as the condition, age, history, and other attributes of an item.

Get Your Selling Questions Answered By the Pros

Have questions? Blue Moon Estate Sales has the answers. Explore our FAQ section below to learn about setup, consultations, potential profits, and managing personal belongings. If you can’t find the answer to your specific question, we encourage you to reach out to our team.

Do I Need to Rent Tables, Display Cabinets, or Clothing Racks?

You can leave the entire setup to us. We have tables and display items ready to go. This ensures a professional presentation of the estate’s belongings, which can impact customer interest and overall sales. Additionally, our setup maximizes space and creates a smooth shopping experience for your guests.

If the Executor Lives Out of State, Can We Still Have an Estate Sale?

Yes! We can handle everything via phone, email, fax, and/or good old-fashioned mail, and can also assist if you’re working with a local realtor or lawyer. We understand the challenges of coordinating an estate sale from afar. Our team will keep you informed throughout the process and can develop an inventory breakdown post-sale.

What Other Services Do You Offer?

In addition to helping individuals and families downsize and relocate by expertly planning, marketing, and conducting estate sales, Blue Moon can connect you with a service to clear out any remaining unwanted items.

Should We Remove Anything From the Home Ahead of Time?

Do not throw out seemingly unusable items, even if they are old. Some items are surprisingly valuable, even with damage or wear. We request that you remove any personal paperwork and effects from the home. This includes birth certificates, social security cards, driver’s licenses, passports, military documents, bank statements, pay stubs, medical bills, family photos, prescription drugs, and the like.

What Should I Expect at Our First Meeting?

The in-home consultation gives us the opportunity to meet, gain an understanding of your needs, and assess the overall value of the contents of the estate. We will then determine whether or not an estate sale is in your best interest.

Is There a Charge for the Initial Consultation?

Our initial consultation is free of charge. This allows us to understand your needs and answer any questions you may have before you decide to move forward with our services. There’s no obligation to book a sale after the consultation.

My Family Would Like to Keep Certain Contents of the Estate. How Should We Handle This?

We ask that you and/or your family members remove any and all items that you would like to keep prior to our initial consultation. This allows us to conduct a thorough assessment.

Should We Sell or Pawn Anything Beforehand?

Absolutely not. Pawn shops and cash-for-gold businesses will only offer you a fraction of what your items are worth. You’ll get far more money selling your items with an estate sale.

We Want to Keep Some Items, But We Do Not Want to Remove Them From the Home. How Is This Handled?

Any items that you would like to keep in the home need to be secured in a certain room or within an area of the home that can easily be sectioned off from the rest of the sale.

How Do We Begin Planning Our Estate Sale?

Simply contact your local Blue Moon team. We are happy to answer your questions and discuss any concerns you may have!

  • Integrity, Competence, Enthusiasm!
    When I first spoke with [my contact at] Blue Moon I thought he sounded like someone with integrity and the competence and enthusiasm to carry out a successful estate sale. With the sale now complete, I happily report that what I sensed to be true was indeed true. In the end, integrity was what I most appreciated about Blue Moon. Going into the sale, I didn’t realize just how much I’d be trusting to this person. Integrity is key! Margie B.
  • Excellent Communicators!
    I just wanted to write and say how happy I am to recommend you to potential clients. When we called you regarding our estate sale needs, another person had already turned us down because there was not much time to advertise. The house was to be sold rather quickly. But you quickly said yes and began contacting your list of people. I was impressed.

    You were easy to work with, and best of all, were an excellent communicator with all [of] those details. You kept everything straight and kept all of your promises about the sale. Folks who attended the sale told me how you made a point of talking with everyone and kept them laughing and interested.

    Afterward, the receipt slips and check arrived quickly. I would recommend you to anyone needing a estate sale professional. Job well done!
    Kate B.
