There is no simple way to sell a business. But the most prepared thai restaurant sellers are achieving fair market value and more for their companies through persistence and the application of sound selling techniques.
Are You the Right Person to Sell Your Business?
An unassisted business sale is a double-edged sword. Without a doubt, you have the most at stake in the outcome of your sale. That makes you the most passionate advocate for your thai restaurant in the business-for-sale marketplace. However, your close connection to your company can also be a drawback. Business owners are subjective and biased about their company's true worth. At a minimum, conduct an independent appraisal of the thai restaurant to gain an objective sense of fair market value.
The decision to sell your thai restaurant can't be made without adequate consideration of what will happen after the sale. If you aren't sure what's next, you could be in trouble because future plans and selling strategy are inextricably connected. In today's market, many buyers expect seller financing - a concession that might not be a possibility for sellers whose next step requires the entire proceeds at the time of the sale.
Leveraging Seller Concessions
In the current marketplace, seller concessions can make the difference between a business sale and a thai restaurant 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. With entrepreneurs struggling to secure capital, you may be the buyer's only source of financing. Other common seller concessions include staying on the mentor the new owner, non-compete clauses, and working as a consultant to mitigate the impact of new ownership.
