Selling a Blank Audio & Videotapes Business to an Employee
Employee sales have pros and cons. A faithful employee may have the motivation and ability to continue to operate the business. If you need to sell quickly, the timeframe is condensed in an employee sale because you don't need to track down a buyer. Yet most employees lack the means to buy their employer's business at or near the asking price. 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 blank audio and videotapes business, a sale to an employee is probably not a possibility.

Many sellers embarked on their blank audio and videotapes business sale without adequately considering the impact it will have on their families.
