Selling an Air Freshener Business

Looking for shortcuts? You won't find them when you sell an air freshener business. In this industry, a business sale takes time, effort and dedication. But with a few tips, you can keep your shirt and your sanity in the sale of your business.

You survived all the ups and downs of owning a business. Next, you'll need to prepare yourself to address the rigors of selling an air freshener business.

Despite the conventional wisdom, we believe current economic conditions are right for selling an air freshener business. Here's how to do it . . .

Tips for Seller Financing

Capital is hard to come by these days. Banks and other lending institutions aren't eager to lend to unproven and undercapitalized air freshener business buyers regardless of the business's potential. Rather than abandon their plans entirely, many buyers are pursuing finance concessions from sellers. Although 100% seller financing isn't recommended, sellers are financing up to 70% of the sale price to close deals.

Maintaining Objectivity

For most owners, the hardest part of selling an air freshener business is remaining objective. Your estimate of your company's worth is probably skewed by your emotions and your close, personal connection to the business. Although it may be a hard pill to swallow, you need to find a way to introduce objectivity into your sale. A business broker can be a valuable resource in right-sizing your expectations and preparing you for market realities.

Sale Costs

In an air freshener business sale, pricing is based on a number of factors, including the costs incurred during the sale. Hiring a broker is a mixed bag because although brokers can increase the sale price, they also take a 10% fee. Attorneys, accountants and appraisers work for a flat fee that can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Furthermore, your time has value, so you may need to include a personal compensation consideration in your expense estimates.
