Why use an Experienced Sales Agent when Selling your Business?
As a business owner you know when it may be time to sell your business and move onto another chapter in your life, whether it be to retire or to move onto a new business venture. In my own experience I know that attachment that a business owner has to his or her business. The years it took to create the business, the long hours endured to make those sales, the seemingly short time frame between payroll periods, the unforeseen costs associated with running and maintaining a business. But with all this said, all business owners know that with hard work come rewards and all business owners in a sense become married to their businesses. The divorce or separation from our businesses can be cause of concern for many owners who have not prepared properly. It can come in form of not getting a confidently statement signed by potential buyers and thereby possibly losing a key employee or a key lending source. It can be that the price that you are asking for is not congruent with your type of business in the current market. It can be that you not prepared to spend hours with a potential buyer while this buyer does his or her due diligence? It may be that you do not have your financial statements prepared and ready to present to a potential buyer? Whatever the reason, there are many positive reasons to secure an experienced agent. Ralph Santos, real estate consultant, business owner, MBA, OTR/L and a member at the team at Re/Max Traditions will be able to guide you in the selling process. Ralph Santos will be there to help you procure and secure an appropriately compensated transaction.
In an LA Times article, “How to Sell Your Business”, written by Barbara Taylor, she wrote that when it comes to selling your business, placing certain parameters onto your potential buyer are key. For example, weeding out the ‘lookie-loos’ [Urban Dictionary] versus those buyers who are pre-qualified or who have the financial abilities to make a serious offer is essential. Another parameter would be having specific questions for your potential buyer such as when do they plan to purchase a business, their business and educational background, and their reasoning for buying your type of business.
In short, going into the murky waters alone without a guide is like playing at a roulette table. Will it be red or black? Ralph Santos at Re/Max Traditions will ensure that you have that essential guide to make sure that you know what you are doing during every stage of the selling process.
