Selling a Business

 

Selling a Real Estate Information Reports Business

Many business leaders say that now isn't the time to try to sell a real estate information reports business. But in reality, now may be the perfect time to sell a real estate information reports business.

Business-for-sale markets are less dependent on economic conditions than most sellers think they are.

Market timing is a constantly moving target. Knowledgeable entrepreneurs understand that market timing isn't nearly as important as other factors in a real estate information reports business sale. To improve sale outcomes, you will simply need to tailor your real estate information reports business to today's buyers.

Pros & Cons of a Sale to an Employee

There are both benefits and drawbacks to selling a real estate information reports business to an employee. There are some perks to selling the business in-house. If you need to sell quickly, the timeframe is condensed in an employee sale because you don't need to track down a buyer. But in many cases, employees expect to get a deal from their employer based on their years of service to the company. Most of the time, employees also expect owners to finance a large portion of the sale. So if you aren't willing to finance the sale or need to get top dollar for your real estate information reports business, a sale to an employee is probably not a possibility.

Sale Documents

In a real estate information reports business sale, the Letter of Intent contains the vital elements of the deal between the buyer and the seller . If you are seeking buyer concessions, the time to address them is before the Letter of Intent is drafted. For sellers, that makes a close review of the Letter of Intent more than a formality - it's a critical juncture on the path to closing.

The Emotions of a Business Sale

Business sellers sometimes struggle to handle the emotions of a sale. Be prepared to experience everything from elation to remorse during the sale of your business. It's important to allow yourself time to process your emotions during your exit. But since it's important to remain as objective and rational as possible, we also recommend establishing a firm sale strategy and negotiation team to limit the impact of your personal feelings on the sale outcome.
