There are a lot of different types of businesses out there: some fill very small niches while others have carved out a unique product or service. If your business falls into one of these categories, then you may be wondering if it’s even worth trying to sell it. 

One thing that can help determine the value and salability of your company is to answer a few key questions. In this blog post, we will walk through those questions so that you can make an informed decision about what comes next for you and your company.

Selling a business is not as hard as one might think. In fact, with the help of an experienced business broker, almost any business can be sold. The key is finding the right buyer, and this is where a good broker comes in. They know how to reach potential buyers all over the world, and so they can help you find the perfect buyer for your business.

 Is it really time to sell? What are the reasons for selling? How important are these reasons to the seller? If a seller isn’t fully committed to selling, it’s likely that the process won’t go very smoothly.

Gauging what is most important in the selling process is very important. Following are some critical factors that every seller or would-be seller should assess:

  • Full price
  • Down payment
  • Keeping existing employees
  • New owner’s plans for the business
  • Confidentiality
  • Selling costs
  • Buyer qualifications
  • Keeping the business locally
  • Providing jobs for children/relatives
  • Structure of the sale

You are in a much better position to stand firm on the important factors that make your business saleable. However, if you are running a unique or niche business, or if your business has not yet achieved a stellar track record, you may have to be willing to bend on any or all of the important factors that make your business saleable. Keep in mind that every one of these factors comes with its own string attached. So weigh them carefully before making any decisions.

Remember: almost all businesses can be sold, but every sale requires a willing buyer – and a willing seller.

So, what factors are most important to you when it comes to selling your business? Price? Location? Client base? Product offering? Whatever they may be, understanding what is truly important to you will help sellers focus on the right areas when working with their business broker professional.
