Are you an owner considering selling your business? Start with this very important question: “Why is the business for sale?” For most buyers, buying a business will be the most important financial decision they will make, so a valid reason, to reduce anxiety, is critical. Then ask yourself: “What support do I need to successfully execute a timely, successful transaction?” Selling a business is a challenging process involving multiple steps – establishing a support team, determining price, marketing the business, managing buyer/seller meetings, determining deal structure, preparing an offer to purchase, conducting negotiations, managing the due diligence process, and coordinating the closing – that can best be led by a skilled business broker who maintains confidentiality, provides critical insight, and creates value. While you, as the owner, continues to operate the business on a daily basis, maintaining sales and profitability.
