You'll always have an excuse for not putting your business on the market. Selling a New Testament church isn't easy, but we believe sellers can achieve their goals in any economic environment.

Timing Your New Testament church Sale

When is it the right time to sell your New Testament church? If you're asking the question, now may be the time to put your business on the market.

With so many sellers holding back, there isn't a lot of inventory out there and you may be able to get a great price for your practice depending on how well you prepare the business and your ability to execute your sale strategy.

Negotiation Teams

Business sellers are sometimes surprised to find themselves in the position of negotiator-in-chief. When you sell your New Testament church, your business brokers may or may not be willing to conduct negotiations for you. A solo negotiation is a surefire way to may a tough job even tougher. A negotiation team comprised of trusted advisors and senior business leaders is essential in helping you devise a winning negotiation strategy.

Sale Costs

In a New Testament church sale, pricing is based on a number of factors, including the costs incurred during the sale. Good brokerage takes a 10% success fee off the top of the final sale price. Professional consultations can also represent a significant expense during the course of a New Testament church sale.
