Success is a factor of preparation, execution and a keen eye for the market. As a business seller, you need to go into the process with the mental goal of presenting your business in the best possible light.

Dealing with Tire Kickers

Unfortunately, many of the prospects you will encounter aren't serious buyers. As a seller, it's important to separate the tire kickers from the serious buyers as soon as possible. Each tire kicker is an investment of time and energy that could be poured into finding a more qualified prospect. Your business broker can offer insights about how to quickly spot tire kickers. Never provide detailed information about your circuit breakers business until the prospect has been qualified as a serious buyer.

Should I Hire a Business Broker?

The decision of whether or not to hire a business broker should never be taken lightly. Although brokerage fees can be substantial, the right broker can reduce the amount of time your circuit breakers business sits on the market. You can also expect to receive a higher sales price for your business in a broker-assisted deal.

Timing the Market

Now may be the best time to sell a circuit breakers business. With interest rates at all-time lows, it's easy to see why circuit breakers businesses are an appealing investment opportunity for savvy investors. Sooner or later, rates will rise, increasing the risk for prospective buyers of circuit breakers 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.
