Selling to a Family Member

The idea of passing a business along to a family member sounds idyllic to many business owners. in reality, a family-based heating equipment commercial and industrial business sale can be more complicated than selling to a stranger. Often, a sale to a family member creates fractures within the family. Unless you have agreed to treat the family member like any other buyer, the risk of hard feelings among other potential heirs or family members is high.

Without brokerage, the risk of your sale going off-course is increased.

Lack of buyer enthusiasm or persistence indicates that something is wrong. The remedy is professional brokerage or a consultation with more experienced sellers.
