to all of our wonderful customers - we
are working on some private sales at
the moment and will be be back in
early December with some more
fabulous estate and moving sales.
Estate and Moving Sales
We do everything from A to Z!
If you are considering selling your home and are too be busy to get your home organized, clutter free and staged in order to put your house on the market we can help!
We come into your home, pack up and sort out all items that are not needed for staging and the selling of your home. If you plan to do an estate sale once your home is under contract, we will sort out those items that you plan to take to your new home and those items that will be sold during your estate sale. Since we are estate sale experts, we know exactly what to keep and what to throw away.
When your home is under contract we'll set up a date for your estate/moving sale! It's that easy. You don't need to work with 3 different vendors you can just hire us and we'll do it all!
Take a look at just a few of the homes we've already had successful sales at:
How We Work:
Our consultations are complimentary. During this time we will discuss all of our services that we offer. We will then do a walk thru of your home to get a scope of what is for sale. It is important that you know beforehand what you plan to keep and what you plan to sell. We will briefly go over those items we feel have more cache and which items we think will bring in the crowds. If there is not enough to warrant a full sale we also offer PARTIAL SALES.
Once we have a signed contract and have agreed upon sale dates we are ready to begin the prep process. Our Manager of Operations will contact you to let you know the dates of your prep. If we can get into the home 3 to 4 weeks prior all the more better, but our average prep usually starts 2 weeks prior to the sale date. Some of the things you will see us doing is organizing, sorting and pricing. We have a team of 10 that have been trained to prep, stage and price. Staging and displaying of your items is part of our expertise since we are professional organizers and stagers.
Unique and Valuable Items:
We strictly adhere to a policy that nothing is ever removed from the home for any reason. If you have a valuable item that requires an appraisal such as a piece of artwork, jewelry, or oriental rug, we will bring in an in-house certified qualified appraiser at no cost to you. This is one of the many value added services we offer which you will not find with many other estate sales companies.
Advertising and Marketing:
BHM is social media savvy - we were one of the first New Jersey estate sellers to have our own Facebook page and Twitter accounts. We have tripled our followers in just 3 short years. We also have an e-commerce website which brings in extra traffic to our estate sale page on our website.
We do targeted marketing for each sale and have a special relationship with our top buyers. We have a secret mailing list that grows daily. We are only 5 years old but are competing for sales with the top estate sellers in the state of New Jersey - there is a reason for that - we know the secret to a successful sale - our customers!
As part of our marketing services, we take photographs and upload them along with maps and details about your sale on all of the major estate sales search engines. In addition, your sale will be marketed on Craigslist, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, to attract the Social Media crowd. We also do a targeted street signage campaign. All of this is at no cost to you! We believe the combination of great customer service, a targeted marketing campaign and a fantastic sales staff will bring in the highest yield for your sale.
Day of Sale:
The day of the sale our entire team will arrive between a half hour and an hour prior to opening the door to the public. Arriving early allows up to handle last minute pricing, and to set up our cashier table. We will also deal with any last minute organizing.
Doors open right on time - - we respect our customers time so we are never late opening the door. Our staff are trained to sell, they will know pricing on items, what the items are and will be able to write up a receipt right there on the spot. Customers will not have to drag something to the cashiers table just to get a price, the price will already be on the item! We have personally handpicked our staff thru a vetting process and only hire those staff members who can expertly and efficiently handle a sales transaction. We also only allow a certain amount of customers in the house at one time. Crowd control we will implemented and will depend on size of house and the items for sale.
We occasionally have clients that would like to be present at their own sale - in our experience it is better for your sale if you are not present. Having clients at their own sale can greatly intimidate the selling process and we have seen deals gone sour when the client is present. We understand having a house sale can bring up mixed emotions and in order to protect yourself we discourage homeowners or family members from attending.
After the Sale:
We have lists of resources who can assist you in removing or donating your remaining items after your sale. Donations are an excellent way to support local charities while gaining the additional benefits of tax deductions. We have a dedicated staff person who will guide you to ensure you are aware of all of the available options.
