Steps Sellers Can Take to “Sell My Business” – Pittsburgh | Raleigh Business Brokers

A potential Seller inquired yesterday “what steps can I take to increase my chances of selling my business?”  We are often asked this question.  As our first reply, we always recommend using your professionals at Pittsburgh | Raleigh Business Brokers

In addition to using an experienced, professional business broker, there are specific steps you can take to increase the chance of a successful closing.

Know why you want to sell your business.  
Before placing your business for sale, it is important that you both know why you want to sell your business and that you are certain about this decision.

Have a plan for what you will do following the closing.

Make sure important parties are on board.  The time to discuss the sale of your business, as well as future plans, with partners, spouses, children and other involved parties is before you list.

Communicate to your outside advisors that you want the deal to work.  Protect your interests, but don’t kill the deal!

Finally, Choose your battles.  Both buyers and sellers need to be willing to compromise.  It is helpful to consider in advance the areas that are most important to you so you can come to the table with a willingness to compromise in other areas.  There must be a win-win for both seller and buyer.

We have a strong backlog of buyers seeking all types of companies.  Contact your Pittsburgh | Raleigh Business Brokers – TM Business Brokers to learn whether or not you have a sellable business.  Do not make the mistake of relying on an adviser who does not sell companies for a living.  You may be delaying the sale of your business for the wrong reasons.

Now may be your time.  Contact the experienced professionals at TM Business Brokers to confidentially discuss “your” situation today!
