Hoping for a quick gold nugget jewelry business sale? You may be disappointed. Although asking price and other factors contribute to sale time, it's difficult to predict how long your business will be on the market before you locate the right buyer.

Once your business is ready for the marketplace, it could take an additional six months to a year to locate the right buyer.
In a gold nugget jewelry business sale, the Letter of Intent contains the vital elements of the deal between the buyer and the seller . If you are seeking buyer concessions, the time to address them is before the Letter of Intent is drafted.

When to End Negotiations
The negotiation stage of a gold nugget jewelry business can seem never-ending. But sooner or later, someone needs to bring negotiations to a close. Unfortunately, that responsibility often falls on the seller. In a gold nugget jewelry business sale, a stalled negotiation can be an indication that the deal is dead. Since it can be difficult to tell whether the buyer is serious or playing games, it's important to know the lower boundaries of your negotiation strategy and be willing to walk away from the negotiation table, if necessary.
