When the economy recovers, we expect to see a sudden influx of Advent Christian churches in the business-for-sale marketplace. Although these companies have been for sale, their owners have resisted listing them until a better economy materializes.

There is no simple way to sell a business. But the most prepared Advent Christian church sellers are achieving fair market value and more for their companies through persistence and the application of sound selling techniques.
Why Confidentiality Matters
Highly publicized Advent Christian church sales are risky Advent Christian churchsales. If you are rigorous about maintaining a confidential sale, there is little risk in putting your Advent Christian church on the market. Eventually, word will leak out. When that happens, it can damage your standing with customers and vendors. Successful sales walk a fine line between total confidentiality and aggressive promotion. If confidentiality is important to you (and it should be), your best bet is to consult with a professional business broker about maintaining a confidential Advent Christian church sale.
How to Identify Prospective Buyers
Many sellers don't realize how many prospective buyers there are for their businesses. We frequently see qualified buyers emerge from the seller's network of business and personal acquaintances. In other cases, sellers take a proactive approach to finding likely buyers and contacting them directly. If possible, steer clear of selling to a competitor if for no other reason than the fact that competitors pay less for Advent Christian churches than other buyers.
When you made the decision to sell your Advent Christian church, you had a specific set of outcomes in mind. Ultimately, many sellers find that the market is unable to deliver their anticipated outcomes. Surprises are inevitable, so to minimize the disappointment you will need to prioritize the outcomes you require from the sale. In the event that the sale fails to meet your expectations, you may want to consider taking the business off the market until you can grow it enough to achieve your desired sale price.
