Advice for a Successful Sale

As part of our commitment to providing you with quality service, our business brokers will guide you through the sales process. We will continuously provide you with advice to help you overcome unexpected obstacles, prevent common mistakes and facilitate a smoother sales process. Some of the common advice that our business brokers provide includes:

  • Prepare for your sale before the sales process begins: Potential buyers will want to see verifiable information about your company. They want to see your financial records, performance history and information about your products. Having all of this information prepared ahead of time will make the sales process easier for you. It will also give buyers the impression that you are taking your business’s sale seriously.
  • Keep running your business: Buyers want to invest in a company that will prosper. The best way to show buyers that your company is a viable investment is for them to see your business running to its fullest potential. For this to happen, you must continue to run your business’s daily operations as if you are not selling at all. Continuing to operate in this way will also help you to maintain or even gain market share, increasing your company’s market value.
  • Maintain flexible pricing expectations: There are countless factors that can impact the way your business is valued in the open market. Many of these factors are even external to your business. For this reason, you must remember that the appraisal that our business brokers provide you is only an estimate. Your business’s value may fluctuate over time, so you must maintain some level of flexibility in terms of your pricing expectations.
  • Do not take negotiations personally: You obviously have a personal connection to your business; after all, you have dedicated so much of yourself to building your business into what it is today. But you must remember that the sale of your business is not personal, and neither is the negotiation process. So you must take care not to take any aspect of this process personally, as this can cause negotiations to break down and make your business far more challenging to sell.
  • Keep your sale confidential: If your competitors, customers, suppliers or even your employees learn about the sale before the sale is closed, the value of your company could be in jeopardy. These information leaks can damage your business’s reputation and drive the value down. You must do everything you can to sell your business discreetly.
  • Consider financing your own sale: While seller financing does come with some risks, there are also many advantages to financing your own sale. You can command a higher price, expedite the sale, reduce your tax obligations, collect interest on your sale price and attract more buyers.
  • Sell to a quality buyer: In many ways, your sale’s long-term success depends on your ability to sell your business to a quality buyer. They can continue to grow your business, continue to employ your employees, build off of your work and successfully repay the debt that they incurred by purchasing your business. To ensure a successful sale in the long-term, you should always be selective about the buyers who you work with, enabling you to sell to a quality buyer.
