Many quartz business owners fail to receive fair market value for their businesses. With the right strategy, your sale doesn't have to end that way.
What to Expect in a Quartz Business Sale
Prepare yourself to feel a broad range of emotions when you sell a quartz business. From hopefulness to remorse, it's all part of exiting of your company. Given your personal investment, you may also experience disappointment in the market's assessment of your company's value. Accurate expectations, a solid strategy and a strong support system can be valuable resources for coping with the personal impact of the sale.
Identifying Serious Buyers
Unfortunately, many of the prospects you will encounter aren't serious buyers. Selling a business is hard enough. You can't afford to waste time on prospects that have no chance of turning their interest into an actual purchase. Good business brokers are adept at separating serious buyers from the rest of the pack. Never provide detailed information about your quartz business until the prospect has been qualified as a serious buyer.
Advantages of Hiring a Broker
A good broker can offer several benefits to business sellers. First-rate brokers are extremely skilled at communicating your company's strengths to prospective buyers. More importantly, brokers have the ability to identify serious buyers and maintain confidentiality throughout the sale process. Typical brokerage rates (a.k.a. success fees) run 10% of the final price - an expense that is usually recouped through a higher sales price and less time on the market.
