Selling to a Family Member

The idea of passing a business along to a family member sounds idyllic to many business owners. in reality, a family-based loose leaf binders retail business sale can be more complicated than selling to a stranger. If it isn't handled properly, a family sale can quickly create irreparable divisions within your family. Whether you offer the family member special concessions or not, either the buyer or other family members may take offense. Although it may seem odd, a sale to a family member can take longer than a sale to a stranger because it may take time to work through family issues prior to closing.

Today's loose leaf binders retail business buyers can be found in a variety of locations. Online business-for-sale databases like BizBuySell.com offer convenient resources for sellers interested in promoting their business to a broad prospect base. More focused prospects are typically found within industry networks. When leveraging industry relationships for sales prospects, you'll need to be cognizant of the potential for competitors to use knowledge of your sale against you in the marketplace. Use good sense in restricting the flow of information within the industry and focusing your efforts toward trusted industry allies.

Finding Prospects

In fact, there is a good chance you already know several individuals or companies that might be interested in buying your business for a decent price.

The downside is that they won't pay top dollar and will probably absorb your company into their own.
