Many business owners don't know that pet containment businesses are still a hot commodity, to the extent that sellers have properly prepared them for the marketplace.
Dealing with Your Emotions
Business sellers sometimes struggle to handle the emotions of a sale. You probably have good reasons for selling your pet containment 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.
How to Increase Sale Price
There are no simple ways to sell a pet containment business. If you don't know what you're doing, your business could languish on the market for months or even years. Fortunately, a business broker can minimize the impact on your bank account and personal well-being. Seller fatigue is a real concern - if your business sits on the market too long, you will be tempted to sell below your expectations. For a lot reasons, a decision to hire a broker is almost always the right decision, especially for sellers who need to receive top dollar for their pet containment businesses.
Leveraging Seller Concessions
Seller concessions are becoming more commonplace in business-for-sale transactions. By far, seller financing is the most sought-after concession, especially in the current economic environment. Capital is scarce, causing new entrepreneurs to rely on sellers to finance at least part of the purchase price. If you are unwilling or unable to offer financing, be prepared to offer other types of concessions to close the deal.
