Selling a business is not an easy task thus the reason you must always start by hiring an experienced manufacturing business broker to help. In our experience, most business owners assume that selling a business is as straightforward as selling their products or services. This is not the case and it is a lesson most business owners learn too late. Our job at So-Cal Business Brokers is not just to help you sell fast, for the right price and to the right buyer but also to manage your expectations. In our experience, here are the five things that make it easy to sell a business.
Great financial history and performance
The majority of buyers are interested in your business’ financial performance. This is because a good performance guarantees a great return on investment. Considering every buyer wants to see evidence of a good financial performance, the first thing your manufacturing business brokers will recommend you do is gather all your financial records. We know what buyers are more interested in and we will not only help you gather these documents but also help you clean them and present them in a way that wins the confidence of potential buyers. Having a repeatable revenue formula will be an added plus.
Location of the business
Your business needs a convenient location for it to run efficiently. We have found that businesses that have a great location end up getting more attention irrespective of their financial performance. If your business has a location that is convenient to a large customer base, it will be much easier to sell. You will have an added advantage if you own the business premise or have a lease that is easy to transfer.
Well documented, adoptable / teachable systems
Buyers want to acquire a business that will not be problematic to run. That is why it is so important to have well documented systems. Our team will also ensure that you have the best time in place to take over operations in your absence. We can help you train or hire a management team to take over operations.

Is your business unique? If the answer is yes, then it will be a lot easier for you to sell it. Buyers want to acquire businesses that have a better competitive advantage. They consider how unique your business is. The aim is to ensure your products cannot be copied easily. Our job when you bring us onboard is to determine how unique your business is. We then use this information to give you an advantage as you market.
