Despite the conventional wisdom, we believe current economic conditions are right for selling a land preparation contractors business. We'll tell you what you need to know to achieve a successful sale outcome
The Emotions of a Business Sale
Business sellers sometimes struggle to handle the emotions of a sale. You probably have good reasons for selling your land preparation contractors business now, but that doesn't make the emotions you will experience any easier. It's important to allow yourself time to process your emotions during your exit. At the same time, it's helpful to consult with people who can help limit the influence of your emotions on negotiations and other aspects of the sale process.
Identifying Serious Buyers
Unfortunately, many of the prospects you will encounter aren't serious buyers. Even though tire kickers are a fact of life in any sale scenario, they sap valuable time and energy that could be spent identifying more serious prospects. Good business brokers are adept at separating serious buyers from the rest of the pack. Never provide detailed information about your land preparation contractors business until the prospect has been qualified as a serious buyer.
Working with Appraisers
An experienced appraiser is part and parcel of a successful land preparation contractors business sale. Armed with a professional appraisal, both you and your broker can enter the negotiation stage with confidence. If you're disappointed with the appraiser's estimate of your company's worth, you have the option of seeking a second opinion. However, it's more often the case that you will need to adjust your expectations of your business's value to buyers.
