Selling a business is a complex and often daunting task for business owners who have never sold their business before. Just as business owners wouldn't attempt to do their own legal or tax work, you are advised not be attempt a "do-it-yourself" job, on what is likely to be the most important deal of your business career. Seeking professional assistance is the right thing to do when it comes to selling such an important asset. Owners frequently choose to sell their business through a business broker because:

 

  • An owner representing themsleves self cannot maintain anonymity. If confidentiality is breached, for any reason, this could seriously harm the business prior to its sale, especially if competitors or employees became prematurely aware of the sale.

  • An owner may not be knowledgeable in current areas of law, accounting, taxes, and marketing of businesses

  • An owner typically does not have the ability or time to contact, screen and qualify a large group of prospects, oftentimes many hundreds, before a suitable qualified buyer is identified who is serious and will offer a fair price

 

  • A broker has the experience, knowledge, and negotiating skills to sell businesses effectively and for the best price, particularly in a highly emotional negotiation where some of the buyer's objectives are totally opposite of the owner's.

 

Working with a professional business broker can make the difference between an owner just selling a business or selling it to the right buyer for the right price and terms.

Step by Step Process

Care and Patience
Selling a business is a process driven activity and should not be rushed. Careful planning can make the difference between getting your value and practically giving your business away.

 

We abide by this process to make things smooth for both sellers and buyer alike...
Think about selling your business early
Many small business owners leave it till the last moment to start thinking about transitioning their business to a new owner. But ideally you should begin thinking about selling your business from the moment you start it up. Once you've made the decsion to sell, it is vital to give yourself as much time as possible to prepare. You need to get your financial house in order and carefully plan for the day you hand over the keys to a new owner.
