Six elements required to ensure a successful sale
Did you know that there are six essential elements which need to be present to enable a business to be sold?
With these six elements present your business should sell promptly. Conversely, if any of these elements are not present, a sale may not be completed in a timely manner. One of the strengths of the Benchmark group is the fact that all of our business brokers have either owned and operated their own small business, or have been involved in business.
So, in speaking to a Benchmark agent you are speaking to someone who REALLY knows what it’s like to run your own business. Benchmark’s business brokers will assist you, showing you ways to save time, money and effort – and how to reduce heartache and complication. If you have a business for sale, Benchmark will take care of you.
Five Steps Involved in Selling Your Business
1. INTERVIEW US
Are we the best company to work for you? Is Benchmark the most suitable firm to represent your business when it is time to sell?
Take time to meet with us and talk to us about the process, and your current position. Take time to assess our company, and to determine how we would prepare your business to take it to market. Find out what we can do to assist you to transition ownership – and turn your business asset into cash.
2. READINESS FOR SALE
Are you ready to sell? A check of the status of the business, and current market will enable you to decide if the business is ready to be sold now. Or if it is more prudent to wait a while.
3. DEVELOP A SALES STRATEGY
Optimise all aspects of the sale process, and manage the outcome. Don’t rely upon the uncertainty of the market, create a plan and a course of action, which will help maximise business value, and minimise disruption.
4. GET STARTED
Once everything is ready, it’s time to get started. And with a professional business broker managing the process, a sale should ensue in 90 days. Benchmark’s “Formula For Success” aims at ensuring that your business is able to be sold – not simply listed for sale.
Last and more important step: Sell the business.
