If you're ready to move on, now is the right time to sell your sports bar.

Selling Time

Hoping for a quick sports bar sale? You may be disappointed. 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 sports bar, 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.

Dealing with Buyers

Buyers can present challenges, especially during the due diligence stage. The questions sports bar ask during due diligence are designed to alleviate their concerns about the business and should be promptly addressed by the seller. Avoid answering buyer concerns with vague generalities. Instead, be as specific as possible, even if it means doing additional research before offering a response. If due diligence drags on too long, your broker may need to intervene.

Hiring an Attorney

It's obvious that you're going to need to hire an attorney to finalize the sale of your sports bar. Competent legal counsel ensures that the sale documents are in proper order. Furthermore, a good lawyers provides the counsel necessary to navigate the tax and liability issues that surround a business sale. It's helpful to introduce your attorney to your broker to facilitate a smooth sale and a productive working relationship.
