Undaunted by economic conditions, many spinning and weaving instruction business sellers are achieving their sale goals through deliberate sale strategies.
Preparing Your Spinning & Weaving Instruction Business for Sale
The outcome of a business sale is largely determined prior to a market listing. Attractive spinning and weaving instruction business sales begin with a comprehensive strategy that incorporates planning, preparation and market positioning. Everything you do to increase market share and profitability has a payoff in the final sale price of your spinning and weaving instruction business. But your efforts to improve your company's position and profitability will only be effective if you invest similar effort into the preparation of accurate financial statements for buyers.
Pros & Cons of a Sale to an Employee
Employee sales have pros and cons. A key employee may seem like a natural sales prospect. The time and expense of locating the right buyer will be nonexistent and you won't have to spend weeks showing the buyer every square inch of the company. Yet most employees lack the means to buy their employer's business at or near the asking price. Seller financing is one way to get around the capital deficit of an employee-based spinning and weaving instruction business sale, as long as you are willing to vet the employee's credit worthiness the same as any other buyer.
Broker vs. No Broker
Anyone who has ever sold a spinning and weaving instruction business has eventually needed to decide whether to use a business broker or go it alone. Is there a cost associated with hiring a broker? Sure - about 10% of the final sale prices. But a good broker will make selling your spinning and weaving instruction business much less painful. You can also expect to receive a higher sales price for your business in a broker-assisted deal.
