Common Questions about the Sale of a Business
A business broker Artesia will get all manner of questions from clients who wish to sell their business. For an inexperienced business broker, it is easy to assume that a client is just playing and not a serious buyer. However, in our years of experience at So-Cal Business Brokers, we have come to understand that even the weirdest questions are genuine. We are thus happy to answer just any question that you may have regarding the sale or purchase of a business. Here are the top questions we get from clients in Los Angeles.
Is it possible to sell a business without the support of a business broker?
The short answer to this question is yes. The long answer, on the other hand, is that selling without the help of a business broker is ill-advised. This is more so when you consider the amount of work that goes into the sale or purchase of a business.
Our business brokers Artesia are licensed, qualified and focused completely in the sale of businesses. We have the network of professional resources and a huge database of active sellers and buyers. Having sold many businesses before, we have the network and the know-how needed to sell fast and at maximum profit. Our team will also guarantee that the sale remains confidential and all the legal ramifications are handled at closing.
Is my company worth selling?
When selling because a business is not doing well, it is easy to ask this question. At So-Cal Business Brokers we have come to learn that there is a buyer for just any business. It only takes the right listing, right timing and setting the right price. Our business brokers will market your business actively to identify the best strategic or synergistic buyers. Give us a call today and we will let you know how much your business is worth after a business valuation.
What can be done to help a business sell fast?
Every business owner wants to close fast. While our job is to help you close fast, there are certain things you can do to help us close even faster. We advise our clients to provide clean and well documented financial documents. This enables us to determine the real value of their business. Removing yourself from operations will also help close fast. We can help with training or the hiring of a new manager.
Is it possible to list the business for sale without telling anyone?
The answer is yes. We recommend that the sale be kept confidential until the closing documents are signed and the business ownership has been transferred. Making the sale public will have negative effects on your business before and during the sale. Our business broker Artesia will maintain confidentiality through blind ads and using non-disclosure agreements.
