Business Seller Representation
Selling a business is complex and time consuming and it is extremally difficult to be a "do it yourself seller" that will yield maximum value in a confidential and timely manner. Most business brokers handle business sales as if it were a real estate transaction and they just hope to be hanging around when the right buyer comes along. This might be ok with you, but if you prefer to secure the maximum value in an orderly, professional and quiet manner send us a note and we'll share the process that we have developed and why it makes the most sense.

Planning on selling your business in a few years? You have a little time and money invested in it? The quality of your retirement might hinge a bit on the quality of the sale transaction. There are definitely certain things or “elements” that, when they are present in a business, drive the value up. Similarly, there are certain characteristics that, when present in a business, will drive down the price a buyer will pay. So, in the years leading up to when you wish to exit, it makes sense to do what you can to mitigate things that sap value and build in or strengthen the things that push sale price up. For more information, pick up on Amazon a copy of Concise Overview of Business Valuation. It contains a chapter on “Value Drivers.” It also lists dos and don’ts for business sellers. And, of course, we can help you determine what a buyer might pay to you today for your business, what the deal terms would likely be, and what you can do to raise value and improve the deal terms.
