We market to an extensive customer base in order to secure a successful turnout. We’re able to reach more potential buyers for our clients than they could ever reach themselves. We own our customer base and don’t rely solely on third-party companies to drive buyers to our sales. Our multi-faceted marketing approach means that reach the right people at the right time. Our target audience is largely made up of families, new homeowners, potential homeowners, savvy shoppers and collectors looking for unique items. We work hard to find buyers in every niche possible.
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 and, of course, the condition, age, history and other attributes of an item.

10 Questions About Having an Estate Sale Answered by the Pros
Nope! Leave that to us. We have tables and display items ready to go.
No problem at all. We can handle everything via phone, email, fax and/or good old-fashioned mail. If you’re working with a local realtor or lawyer, they can be of assistance, as well.
If you choose, we are happy to connect you with a service to clear out any remaining, unwanted items.
Do not throw out seemingly unusable items, even if they are old. Some items are surprisingly valuable, even with damage or wear.
We do 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.
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.
Nope. Our initial consultation with you is free of charge.
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.
Absolutely not. Pawn shops and cash-for-gold businesses will only offer you a fraction of what your items are worth. You’ll net far more money selling your items with Blue Moon than you will selling them to a jewelry store or pawn shop.
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.
