When is the best time to Sell your Business?

Usually the best time to obtain the highest price occurs when the sales and earnings are good and trending upward. A solid earnings trend will enable a buyer to pay a higher price and still meet his return on investment criteria. A history of good performance also gives the buyer confidence in projected future earnings. 

 

When the decision to sell is made, preparing the business for sale should begin by obtaining current financial statements, performing needed repairs, and obtaining current market valuations before any efforts to market the business begins. 

Who would buy it?

For most companies, there are several categories of prospective buyers. The most obvious are other companies in the same business for whom the acquisition would be a logical expansion with potential economies of scale. 

Based on our experience in selling many businesses, approximately 80% of the prospective buyers are individuals who want to control their own future.

There is not way to tell you how long it will take to sell your business,  but it will sell faster, if you allow me to price it correctly and offer the proper terms.   Some factors to consider;
