Selling a Business

 

Selling an Eastern Orthodox Church

You've learned a lot during your tenure as an Eastern Orthodox church owner. The next step is to position your business for the demands of the business-for-sale marketplace.

Business sellers are notorious for second-guessing themselves about the right time to put their companies up for sale.

However, serious buyers also understand the value of a good Eastern Orthodox church. So for Eastern Orthodox church sellers, today's market is all about convincing buyers that the numbers make their companies worth the asking price.

Factoring In Economic Variables

When you sell an Eastern Orthodox church, there are a number of variables you need to consider. Interest rates, spending, inflation, and other variables directly influence how long your Eastern Orthodox church will be on the market as well as its sales price. The truth is that perfect market conditions may never materialize. If you don't believe your Eastern Orthodox church would sell for top dollar right now, what can you do to make it more attractive to the marketplace? Increase profitability? Build brand visibility?. When it comes to selling an Eastern Orthodox church, successful sales sales often boil down to the business itself - not the economy.

Leveraging Seller Concessions

Seller concessions are becoming more commonplace in business-for-sale transactions. In a down economy sellers become bankers; an unwillingness to finance at least part of the sale of an Eastern Orthodox church can translate into a dead deal. Capital is scarce, causing new entrepreneurs to rely on sellers to finance at least part of the purchase price. If you are unwilling or unable to offer financing, be prepared to offer other types of concessions to close the deal.

Handling Unexpected Outcomes

Every business seller dreams of a fast sale and a fat payday. However, no one told the marketplace about your expectations. The outcome of your sale will be determined by market forces - not by your personal circumstances or desires. Despite your best efforts, you need to prepare yourself for the possibility of receiving less than you expected from the sale of your Eastern Orthodox church. If buyers don't seem to be willing to meet your expectations, consult with your broker to modify your strategy and market approach.
