Dealing with Your Emotions

Business sellers sometimes struggle to handle the emotions of a sale. You probably have good reasons for selling your used sewing machines business now, but that doesn't make the emotions you will experience any easier. It's important to allow yourself time to process your emotions during your exit. But since it's important to remain as objective and rational as possible, we also recommend establishing a firm sale strategy and negotiation team to limit the impact of your personal feelings on the sale outcome.

How to Skillfully Address Buyer Concerns

Buyers can present challenges, especially during the due diligence stage. The questions used sewing machines business 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.

Sale Costs

You'll need to incorporate the cost of the sale into the calculation the minimum price you are willing to receive for your used sewing machines business. Good brokerage takes a 10% success fee off the top of the final sale price. Professional consultations can also represent a significant expense during the course of a used sewing machines business sale. Furthermore, your time has value, so you may need to include a personal compensation consideration in your expense estimates.
