Average Timeframes

Hoping for a quick ice sculptors business sale? You may be disappointed. The amount of time your business will be on the market depends on how aggressively it is priced and marketed. Before you can list your ice sculptors business, 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.

Brokerage Benefits

A good broker can offer several benefits to business sellers. First-rate brokers are extremely skilled at communicating your company's strengths to prospective buyers. Second, a good business broker is a master at confidentiality locating ice sculptors business sale prospects and guiding sellers through negotiations. Brokerage isn't cheap. But even though you can spend as much as 10% of the sale price on a good broker, you'll likely achieve decent ROI through an improved final sale price.

Negotiation Teams

Business sellers are sometimes surprised to find themselves in the position of negotiator-in-chief. When you sell your ice sculptors business, your business brokers may or may not be willing to conduct negotiations for you. Negotiation is a chess game, best played with the resources and backend support of a negotiation team. By enlisting the assistance of a negotiation team (senior leaders, experienced negotiators, etc.), you can improve the quality of your negotiation strategy and position yourself to receive top dollar for your ice sculptors business.
