Own it. Our business model allows the franchisees flexibility and potential for a great income in a dynamic and growing industry. Each Blue Moon Estate Sales location is home based with the ability to set your own hours. You are in control of your own schedule which allows you to spend more time with your friends and family. With no “brick and mortar” requirements there is no mandatory operating hours that keep you restrained inside a retail space. Minimal space is required for supplies of a profitable estate sale franchise. The sales are conducted in the clients home not a store front.
"I am so much happier since I said goodbye to corporate life! I have been successful, and I feel very proud of the value I am providing and the achievements I’ve made."
-Toby Affuso, Owner/Operator of Blue Moon Estate Sales of Northern Virginia
Loosen your tie, put away your dress clothes, and prepare yourself for a whole new world of fun and profitable estate sales. Enjoy the freedom that comes with being your own boss. After years of heading to work at 6am working for some of America’s largest corporations Blue Moon Estate Sales owner Ken Blue really enjoys the flexibility that comes with owning the Raleigh NC franchise. He’s given up his wing tips for comfortable gym shoes and hasn’t looked back. Unlike other franchises that are open 24/7, in weeks where there is not a sale the owner largely has that week off to stretch out and enjoy some time off. We usually don’t hold sales on holiday weekends allowing franchise owners to spend time with friends and family.
Blue Moon Estate Sales is one of the few franchises that strikes all the right chords with people looking to earn a good living while make a difference in others' lives. If you don’t mind getting your hands a little dirty, working some weekends and serving your community, you might be just who we’re looking for.
Owning an estate sale franchise is ideal for people who enjoy:
- Marketing and Sales
- Working with People
- Planning and Organizing
- Flexible Work Week
A Blue Moon Estate Sales Franchise provides tremendous opportunity. You are joining a growing, in-demand industry that for years was run by small estate sale companies that provided a lot of variability in service to their clients. Part of our mission is to bring standardization to the industry in the form of reliability, integrity, honesty, promptness and professionalism – all with a caring touch because this is often a very stressful time in people’s lives. This industry is growing largely due to the daily increase in the number of baby boomers, many of whom have lost one or both parents or are in need of downsizing of their own possessions. There were 76 million births in the US between 1946 and 1964. Approximately 10,000 people turn 65 every day. In sharp contrast to the size of families and the limited amount of tangible assets 50+ years ago, today’s families are smaller and families have a lot more “stuff”- often more than can reasonably be passed on to their heirs. This creates a lot of opportunity for our franchisees.
Another opportunity at hand is the fact that there are billions of dollars worth of possessions in these homes nationwide that need a way to be sold at some point. This provides the needed inventory for our franchisees. There is also much potential for more business as many areas of the US are not yet utilizing these services.
We have found, too, that even in the face of an economic downturn the business has thrived. Many people realize the necessity to sell, buyers are looking for a better way to buy and many people are looking for part time employment.
Welcome to an enjoyable, profitable and rewarding business – An Estate Sale Franchise!
