In a down economy, many lawn spraying and treatment business sellers wait to list their businesses until they see signs that the economy has rebounded, making it difficult to accurately evaluate the number of lawn spraying and treatment businesses that are actually for sale.

For sellers who are willing to perform adequate sale preparation, the numbers make lawn spraying and treatment businesses a solid investment for qualified buyers in the business-for-sale marketplace.
Broker vs. No Broker
The decision of whether or not to hire a business broker should never be taken lightly. Is there a cost associated with hiring a broker? Sure - about 10% of the final sale prices. But a good broker will make selling your lawn spraying and treatment business much less painful. You can also expect to receive a higher sales price for your business in a broker-assisted deal.
Factoring In Economic Variables
Think a lawn spraying and treatment business sale is simple? Think again. A combination of economic conditions and market sentiment can complicate your sale. But at Gaebler, we advise our business partners to look beyond simple economic data when determining whether it's the right time to sell a lawn spraying and treatment business. A much better approach is to focus on the factors that always attract buyers and investors. One thing is for sure - buyers are paying more attention to your company's profitability and growth potential than they are to the latest quarterly economic indicators.
Finding Lawn Spraying & Treatment Business Buyers
It's difficult to predict where the buyer of your lawn spraying and treatment business will come from. To cover all your bases, you'll need to conduct a broad buyer search process. Although it's helpful to target promotional tactics to likely buyers, allow for some exposure to the broader market. Sellers should also recognize the value of promoting their sale in trusted business networks, carefully balancing the need for confidentiality with the promotional potential of their contact base.
