American business brokers is a full service brokerage providing business owners professional representation during the sale of their business. Our services include business appraisals, locating cash buyers, negotiation and more.
Selling a business is a complex process that involves many steps, here are 3 key items:
1. Keep good financial records. A seller needs to be able to prove the income, prove the write offs and document the business exists.
2. Sellers should prepare to sell. Having managers and employees that can run the business for the owner makes for a very easy sell & transition to a new owner.
3. Sellers should hire a pro to sell their business. A great broker offers a buffer between buyer and seller when negotiation gets hot, but more importantly I usually get my sellers 30% more on the sales price.
