Common Seller Questions

Of all the services that our business brokers provide to facilitate business sales, one of the most important is guidance. At Morgan & Westfield, our business brokers understand that the average business owner has never gone through the process of selling a business before and will likely have some questions.

At the San Diego, California, office of Morgan & Westfield, our business brokers will not only guide you through each step in the sales process, we will also be there to answer any questions that you may have. Some of the most common questions that we answer include:

  • How long does the sales process take? The length of the sales process can vary significantly based on several factors. Some of these factors include how your business was incorporated, the condition of your company, market conditions, your asking price, and your willingness to finance the sale, among many other factors. However, the sales process will generally take anywhere from six months to a year.
  • Will I be asked to sign a non-compete contract? Most buyers will require you to sign a non-compete contract. This is a standard aspect of any business sale, so you should be prepared to sign one if you are planning to sell your business.
  • How will my sale be advertised? At Morgan & Westfield, we utilize a strategy of confidential marketing to advertise your business through a variety of business-for-sale websites. The ads that are created will describe your business without exposing any details of your operations that may reveal your business’s identity. They will also prompt interested buyers to contact Morgan & Westfield to learn more.
  • When can I tell my employees about the sale? Our business brokers recommend keeping your sale as private as possible. This means not telling anyone — including your employees — about your sale until it is finalized. We also recommend asking anyone who has knowledge of your sale to sign a confidentiality agreement.
  • Why should I sell through a broker? There are many advantages to selling your business through the business brokers of Morgan & Westfield. Some of these advantages include selling for a higher price, an expedited sales process, and a confidential sale. And our brokers will even take care of the technical aspects of your sale for you.
  • How will an asking price be determined? At Morgan & Westfield, our business brokers provide business appraisal services. We will analyze every aspect of your business and your marketplace. The results of this analysis will be outlined in a formal business valuation report. Through these appraisals, we ensure that your business is priced accurately.
  • Should I disclose negative information about my business’s performance? Any quality buyer will perform research into your company. These quality buyers will also understand that every business has its ups and downs. So, yes, you should disclose all information about your business to your buyer. This is especially important because a quality buyer will usually uncover this information during his or her own due diligence process, and it is best if the buyer does not discover this information on his or her own.
  • What should I expect in an initial offer? Most buyers will make a low initial offer because he or she is expecting to negotiate with you. It is important that you keep this in mind when you receive offers and not become discouraged by an initial low offer.
