In a skittish economy, climbing gyms business sellers can access several strategies to receive fair market value from entrepreneurs who understand the value of a good business investment.
Working with Appraisers
There is no substitute for a qualified appraisal in the sale of your climbing gyms business. Leading industry appraisers equip sellers with a value gauge that can be accessed during negotiations. If you're disappointed with the appraiser's estimate of your company's worth, you have the option of seeking a second opinion. However, it's more often the case that you will need to adjust your expectations of your business's value to buyers.
Many sellers don't realize how many prospective buyers there are for their businesses. We frequently see qualified buyers emerge from the seller's network of business and personal acquaintances. In other cases, sellers take a proactive approach to finding likely buyers and contacting them directly. Competitors may seem like natural prospects and they are. The downside is that they won't pay top dollar and will probably absorb your company into their own.
When to End Negotiations
Negotiations have a way of dragging on forever. Yet eventually many negotiations reach a stage where further discussion is pointless. In a climbing gyms business sale, a stalled negotiation can be an indication that the deal is dead. At this point in the process, an awareness of negotiation parameters really pays off. If the buyer is unwilling to accept your minimum demands, it's time to end negotiations and move on to the next prospect.
