If you're ready to move on, now is the right time to sell your caulking materials and equipment business.

After the Sale

As your caulking materials and equipment businesssale nears completion, there is a lot of work remaining to be done. There are several details that still need to be addressed. What will the ownership transition look like? Are you prepared to deal with the tax consequences of receiving a significant sum of money in exchange for your business? How will you prepare your employees for your inevitable exit from the business? You, your employees and the buyer all have a stake in making sure the sale ends as smoothly as possible. If possible, work with the buyer to create a transition strategy that minimizes the impact on the business and your workforce.

Negotiating Your Sale

As a business seller, you have to be at the top of your negotiating game. Information is the key to a great caulking materials and equipment business negotiation. But great negotiation begins with knowing yourself. What is the realistic price range for your caulking materials and equipment business? What is the minimum amount you're willing to settle on? Are you willing to offer seller financing or other concessions to close the deal? If you can't answer these questions, you're simply not ready to sit down at the negotiation table yet. If you aren't sure what you need, put negotiations on hold until you gain a clearer understanding of your own deal parameters.

Timing the Market

Worried about timing? Believe it or not, this could be an advantageous time to put a caulking materials and equipment business up for sale. Although the economy is generally struggling, low interest rates make caulking materials and equipment businesses more attractive to entrepreneurs who want to get in the game. Sooner or later, rates will rise, increasing the risk for prospective buyers of caulking materials and equipment businesses. So we see market timing as a concern that can be easily mitigated by applying fundamental sales strategies and adequately preparing your company for buyers.
