Despite the overall mood of the marketplace, safes and vaults wholesale and manufacturers businesses are still an attractive investment, especially when sellers have invested time and energy in preparing their companies for a sale.
Working with Accountants
Accountants come into play at several stages of the sale process. From a seller perspective, an accountant can offer personal financial assistance, especially when it comes to handling the disposition of sale proceeds. Brokers often advise their clients to have an accountant perform an audit of the business prior to sale. With seller financing becoming common, professional accountants are playing a more central role in negotiations and buyer qualification.
In the current marketplace, seller concessions can make the difference between a business sale and a safes and vaults wholesale and manufacturers business that languishes on the market for months or even years. By far, seller financing is the most sought-after concession, especially in the current economic environment. Traditional lenders and investors are gun shy - and that makes sellers a logical funding source for many buyers. If you are unwilling or unable to offer financing, be prepared to offer other types of concessions to close the deal.
Before You Sell
The upfront time you investment in the sale of your safes and vaults wholesale and manufacturers business will pay big dividends at closing. Perhaps the most important pre-sale consideration is to right-size your expectations to the realities of the market. Armed with a realistic timeframe and asking price, you can begin to consult with your broker about the best way to approach likely buyers.
