Selling an Astrology School

You've heard the naysayers - now isn't the time to sell a astrology school. But what they don't know is that many entrepreneurs see astrology schools as a smart business investment.

Intimidated by a sluggish economy, business buyers are more cautious than ever.

If you're ready to move on, now is the right time to sell your astrology school.

Sale Costs

In an astrology school 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. Professional consultations can also represent a significant expense during the course of an astrology school sale. Furthermore, your time has value, so you may need to include a personal compensation consideration in your expense estimates.

Finding Astrology School Buyers

It's difficult to predict where the buyer of your astrology school will come from. Avoid pigeon-holing your search to a single buyer category. 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.

Sale Preparation Timeframes

Preparing an astrology school sale takes time. Since buyers prefer to see evidence of future cash flow, you'll want to to strategically lock in cash flows and increase profits before you list the business. Additionally, prospective buyers usually request documentation that allows them to understand the business's daily workflows and operational strategy. Since all of this takes time and effort, a astrology school can rarely be ready for the marketplace in less than six months. A more likely scenario is that it will take more than a year to create the conditions necessary to receive the maximum sale price.
