Selling a Land Clearing and Leveling Contractors Business

We hear from a lot of business owners who are timid about listing their land clearing and leveling contractors business. Despite the mood of the market, we think there are still opportunities to receive a good price for your land clearing and leveling contractors business. Here's what you need to know . . .

Dire economic forecasts have forced many land clearing and leveling contractors business sellers into hibernation. Instead of listing their companies now, they're hanging back until they see signs of an economic recovery.

Undaunted by economic conditions, many land clearing and leveling contractors business sellers are achieving their sale goals through deliberate sale strategies.

Identifying Serious Buyers

Unfortunately, many of the prospects you will encounter aren't serious buyers. Selling a business is hard enough. You can't afford to waste time on prospects that have no chance of turning their interest into an actual purchase. If you aren't sure what to look for in a serious buyer, ask your broker for advice. Never provide detailed information about your land clearing and leveling contractors business until the prospect has been qualified as a serious buyer.

Tips for Working with A Business Broker

Brokerage is a mainstay of the business-for-sale marketplace. Brokerage is particularly common in the land clearing and leveling contractors business-for-sale market, where aggressive selling strategies are the norm. However, your broker will still expect you to materially participate in the sale of your business. Successfully brokered sales are based on solid relationships between brokers and sellers as well as the strict execution of a common selling strategy.

Pre-Sale Checklist

There is a lot of work that needs to be done before you're ready to sell your land clearing and leveling contractors business. Perhaps the most important pre-sale consideration is to right-size your expectations to the realities of the market. Armed with a realistic timeframe and asking price, you can begin to consult with your broker about the best way to approach likely buyers.
