Reasons for Selling Through a Business Broker

Business owners often wonder why they should sell their company through a professional business broker. After all, you can technically sell your business privately. But, just because you are allowed to do something doesn’t mean that you should. In fact, it is in your best interests to sell through a professional broker as opposed to personally selling your company on your own. Some of the reasons why you are better off selling your business through a professional include:

  • Protection from Innocent Mistakes: Because business owners are not usually accustomed to this type of sales process, innocent mistakes are common. You may forget to complete or file some paperwork, misread the market, over- or undervalue your company, inadvertently misrepresent something or forget to complete some of your contractual obligations. These mistakes, while innocent, can have a disastrous impact on the sales process. They can cost you time and money, and in some cases, they can even nullify an already agreed upon deal. But our business brokers have the experience and expertise necessary to prevent these mistakes and ensure a smooth sales process.
  • Privacy Protection: You cannot just put a signup or take out an ad in the newspaper to sell your business. Selling a business requires discretion. Customers, suppliers, competitors and even employees should not know about the sale until it is completed. Your ability to have a successful sale may depend on maintaining this confidentiality. At Morgan & Westfield, we can ensure that your business will be sold confidentially.
  • Time: Business sales take time. There are many technical details that must be properly addressed, and this can be very time-consuming. Because sellers are also busy operating their business, they often do not have the time to devote to this process. This leads to mistakes and a prolonged sales process. Because our business brokers facilitate local business sales full time and we are not running your business’s day-to-day operations, we have the time to devote to properly addressing every aspect of your company’s sale, thereby expediting the process.
  • Price: The vast majority of businesses that are sold directly by their owners sell for far below their market value. There are many reasons for this phenomenon, and they can all be avoided under the guidance of a professional business broker. We can connect you with higher quality buyers, help you to more accurately price your company, assist you with the negotiation process and ultimately help you sell your business for a higher price.
  • Long-Term Success: Sales that are completed without the assistance of a professional business broker are often unsuccessful in the long term. These deals are poorly structured, incorrectly financed and in many cases destined to fail. These issues lead to nonpayment, legal battles and a general failure for the overall sale. Failure to sell your business in a way that is successful in the long term can turn your dream of selling your business and moving on to the next stage of your life into a nightmare. Given these stakes, you should always get professional assistance when you go through the process of selling your business.
