If you aren't sure what you need, put negotiations on hold until you gain a clearer understanding of your own deal parameters.

How to Identify Prospective Buyers

Although some indoor baseball and softball facility sellers advertise their businesses in general classifieds, the most successful sales are those in which professional brokers seek out likely buyers. Competitors may seem like natural prospects and they are. The downside is that they won't pay top dollar and will probably absorb your company into their own.
