A business sale is always a sophisticated transaction and if you aren't prepared for it, your auto accessories wholesale and manufacturers business sale could have an unexpected outcome. To stay on course, you'll need sound strategy and meticulous execution on your side.

Economic Considerations

When you sell an auto accessories wholesale and manufacturers business, there are a number of variables you need to consider. Interest rates, spending, inflation, and other variables directly influence how long your auto accessories wholesale and manufacturers business will be on the market as well as its sales price. The truth is that perfect market conditions may never materialize. A much better approach is to focus on the factors that always attract buyers and investors. In our experience, the most important factors in the sale of an auto accessories wholesale and manufacturers business have little to do with the economy.

Advantages of Hiring a Broker

A good broker can offer several benefits to business sellers. Right out of the gate, brokers know how to help their clients properly prepare their businesses for a sale. More importantly, brokers have the ability to identify serious buyers and maintain confidentiality throughout the sale process. Typical brokerage rates (a.k.a. success fees) run 10% of the final price - an expense that is usually recouped through a higher sales price and less time on the market.

Leveraging Seller Concessions

Seller concessions are becoming more commonplace in business-for-sale transactions. The most common seller concession is seller financing. With entrepreneurs struggling to secure capital, you may be the buyer's only source of financing. As an alternative, clearly state that seller financing is not an option and consider offering other concessions to see the sale through to its completion.
