Most farms and ranch loans businesses are good business opportunities, a fact that is not going unnoticed by today's discerning buyers.

When to End Negotiations

Negotiations have a way of dragging on forever. But sooner or later, someone needs to bring negotiations to a close. Unfortunately, that responsibility often falls on the seller. It's not unusual for a farms and ranch loans business sale negotiation to reach an impasse over price or other concessions.

If the buyer is unwilling to accept your minimum demands, it's time to end negotiations and move on to the next prospect.

Moving On

So you've decided to sell your farms and ranch loans business. That's great -- but have you considered what's next? Are you moving on to another business venture? Are you retiring? many sellers find themselves ill-equipped to handle life after their business and fail to understand that their future plans can influence the sale process. In today's market, many buyers expect seller financing - a concession that might not be a possibility for sellers whose next step requires the entire proceeds at the time of the sale.

Advantages of Hiring a Broker

A good broker can offer several benefits to business sellers. First-rate brokers are extremely skilled at communicating your company's strengths to prospective buyers. More importantly, brokers have the ability to identify serious buyers and maintain confidentiality throughout the sale process. Brokerage isn't cheap. But even though you can spend as much as 10% of the sale price on a good broker, you'll likely achieve decent ROI through an improved final sale price.
