The Benefits of Using a Business Advisor

When selling a business, it is advisable to utilize the services of an experienced business advisor. A business advisor can handle many of the more challenging aspects of selling your business for you. They can also offer advice and guidance as you navigate the complex process of selling your business. But beyond just providing services that handle the process of selling your business, a business advisor can also help you to maximize the returns on the sale of your business. At Morgan & Westfield, we accomplish this in two ways.

First, we help you to negotiate a higher price by advising you on negotiation techniques and assisting you with structuring the deal. By doing this, we make it far more likely that you will come to a more beneficial deal. Deals that are structured without the advice of a business advisor are more likely to be structured incorrectly; this often results in further negotiations or the deal being rejected entirely. These factors, along with a lack of experience in negotiating business sales, are the main reasons why businesses that are sold privately usually sell for below their market value .

The second way that our business brokers help you to maximize returns is by expediting the process. When selling a business privately, due to a lack of experience in selling businesses and a lack of time to devote to selling the business, unexpected challenges usually slow the process considerably. Business owners who sell their business privately also often lack the resources to expose their business to a large audience of potential buyers. This makes it more difficult to find a buyer and decreases their leverage during negotiations, which draws out the negotiation process.

But when you sell your business through Morgan & Westfield, we continually work to ensure that the sale of your business is moving forward. We will utilize our experience and our ability to focus solely on the sale of your business to ensure that there is continuous progress. Our business advisors also expose your business to a national audience of potential buyers. This will both help you to find a buyer more quickly and increase your leverage during negotiations. These two factors will serve to expedite the sale of your business while simultaneously helping you to maximize your profits.
