With these six elements present your business should sell promptly.

WHY SHOULD YOU CONSULT A – BENCHMARK BUSINESS BROKER?
Buying or Selling a business is a specialised and complex process that requires considerable experience in a
number of areas.
Just as you rely upon a qualiﬁed lawyer for legal advice, and your accountant for ﬁnancial advice – you should seek professional advice and assistance when it comes to buying or selling an asset as important as a business.
Eight Reasons Why You Should Consult A Specialist
Business values can be adversely affected if Key Employees, Suppliers or Customers ﬁnd out that a business is on the market – which can often happen when owners deal directly with buyers.
Business brokers work to control conﬁdentiality.
Experienced Business Brokers are an excellent source of information about the business buying and selling process.
They can advise you on current market trends, pricing and local issues.
Business brokers generally have a network of allied professionals and can help and guide buyer and seller through the sale process.
All experienced and successful business brokers have a database of buyers looking to acquire a business.
A broker’s role includes qualiﬁcation of all Buyers for Intent, Ability and Financial Resources
Conﬁdentially promoting the business to the target market and generating interest and demand is one of the great attributes that an experienced team of brokers will possess.
Managing the Process
Finding, screening and evaluating buyers, Arrangement of Business Inspections, transferring information on the business, negotiating the price and terms of sale to be acceptable to the Seller, facilitating the ﬂow of information between Lawyers and Accountants and providing a buffer for the emotions that can arise between the parties.
Business brokers are apt at managing this complex process.
Both Buyer and the Seller beneﬁt because the Broker has pre-qualiﬁed the business before listing and should know almost as much about the business as the owner.
This helps motivated Buyers who have been pre-qualiﬁed to quickly make a well informed decision on their level of interest in the business.
Management of the Process from Negotiation of Terms, Contract Preparation, Due Diligence.
Financial Approval through to Successful Settlement
