Whether you want to sell manufacturing business to someone you know or to a complete stranger, learning of the mistakes to avoid is very important. At So-Cal Business Brokers our primary goal is to make sure you not only sell fast but to the right buyer, for the best terms, for the best price and at the best time. In our experience, here are the key mistakes you must avoid.
Not planning ahead
Succession planning is very important if you want to sell your business. It goes without saying that you cannot run your business forever. At one point in time you will have to let it go. That is why coming up with an exit strategy is very important. This will help you know when it is time to exit and how to do it. Our business brokers can help create an exit strategy and help structure the deal. We will also ensure that you don’t take too long to sell manufacturing business. Contact us now to find out more.
Thinking you don’t have to give the business your all after listing
This is a very common mistake business owners make when selling. They assume that because the business broker has taken over the sale they no longer need to keep growing their business. This is a mistake you must avoid especially when you consider the fact that it takes 6 months to 2 years to sell a business. If its value declines after listing, the buyer will use that against you. Our team at So-Cal Business Brokers takes over the sale so that you can focus on the core operations of your business as we sell it.
Asking too much or too little
Pricing is everything as you sell manufacturing business. Setting an unrealistic price tag for your business will only lead to a dead-end. You cannot expect to earn top dollar for a business that generates little to no profit. If the price is too low, it will raise red flags and you might end up selling at a loss. Our team will help with pricing. We do this by performing a through business valuation, market research and then package the business properly. The price we set will not only bring competing bids but also help sell for maximum profit. Contact us now to find out more.
Selling to the wrong buyer
You must never settle for the first offer you get. Doing so will mean selling to the wrong buyer. We are here to help you identify the best buyer whose interests align with yours.
