Tips to Improve Exit Planning

Selling a Jewelry Rental Business

Business sellers have diverse personal and professional goals for the sale of their companies. But no matter what you expect from the sale of your jewelry rental business, it's in your best interest to maximize the sales price through the application of proven sales techniques.

Business buyers face their own set of frustrations and complications. Capital is scarce and many buyers simply can't afford the entry requirements for a jewelry rental business.

Many business owners don't know that jewelry rental businesses are still a hot commodity, to the extent that sellers have properly prepared them for the marketplace.

How to Skillfully Address Buyer Concerns

Buyers can present challenges, especially during the due diligence stage. Due diligence preparation can mitigate the irritation factor, but you should still expect to field numerous buyer concerns before closing. When concerns arise, it's helpful to base your responses on facts and data. If you don't know the answer to a question, there's no shame in admitting ignorance and telling the buyer you'll look into it. If due diligence drags on too long, your broker may need to intervene.

Selecting a Broker

Good business brokers inevitably produce better business sales. No two jewelry rental business sales are alike. That means you'll want to look for a broker who has been around the block and possesses substantial experience selling businesses in the industry. The best brokers should also come with a list of references, a demonstrable track record and a proven plan for selling jewelry rental businesses.

Laying the Groundwork

Effective jewelry rental business preparation focuses on communicating value to prospective buyers. Professional business brokers understand buyers and know how to properly communicate a jewelry rental business to the marketplace. Financial statements, appraisals, operations manuals and other documents lay the foundation for your jewelry rental business sale, creating incentives for prospects to agree to a higher asking price.
