They require careful planning and an intentional strategy that emphasizes your neuropsychological testing business's strengths and meets the needs of the marketplace. As a business seller, you need to go into the process with the mental goal of presenting your business in the best possible light.

Dealing with Tire Kickers

If you haven't sold a business before, prepare to be overwhelmed by tire kickers -- seemingly interested buyers who lack the capacity, ability or desire to actually purchase your neuropsychological testing business. As a seller, it's important to separate the tire kickers from the serious buyers as soon as possible. Each tire kicker is an investment of time and energy that could be poured into finding a more qualified prospect. If you aren't sure what to look for in a serious buyer, ask your broker for advice. Never provide detailed information about your neuropsychological testing business until the prospect has been qualified as a serious buyer.

Post-Sale Details

As your neuropsychological testing businesssale nears completion, there is a lot of work remaining to be done. Handing over the keys and saying goodbye to your employees is easier said than done, and requires thoughtful consideration prior to closing. If there are pending details that still need to ironed out, address them ASAP to ensure a smooth closing and transition.

Average Timeframes

It's rarely possible to sell a neuropsychological testing business in a month or two. Unfortunately, there are no hard and fast rules about the length of time your business will be on the market. Pricing plays a role in sale length, but there are no guarantees that a fairly priced business will sell quickly. Before you can list your neuropsychological testing business, you'll need to invest as much as a year in preparing it for prospective buyers. Even though it's conceivable that an attractive opportunity could sell in weeks, an immediate flood of offers could indicate that the business is underpriced.
