Thinking About Selling Your Business?


Selling your business is a difficult personal decision that carries many risks. It will likely be the largest financial transaction of your lifetime and it is critical to net the largest payout and best terms the market will support. The typical 6-12 month business sale process is complex and must be handled in a sophisticated and confidential manner. Ethical dealing and proper documentation are crucial to avoid future legal issues. Advertising and marketing in a business sale are handled much differently than even commercial real estate.

Once you finally reach the difficult decision to sell, the problem many business owners often face with the larger brokerage firms is when your business is assigned to a junior broker or the ex-commercial real estate guy with little or no experience in selling businesses. Accountability, professionalism and responsiveness are often missing in the common franchise business brokerage firms. It might surprise you to hear that the majority of business brokers fail to succeed in this industry and eventually move on to easier professions.
