Tips for Working with A Business Broker
Brokerage is a mainstay of the business-for-sale marketplace. Brokerage is particularly common in the organ parts and supplies business-for-sale market, where aggressive selling strategies are the norm. However, your broker will still expect you to materially participate in the sale of your business. To maximize your broker's potential, conduct periodic consultations throughout the process and deliver requested information as quickly as possible.
Objectivity is a rare commodity in a business sale. Your estimate of your company's worth is probably skewed by your emotions and your close, personal connection to the business. In our experience, the most successful sales are ones in which the seller has made an intentional effort to remain objective and set realistic expectations. A business broker can be a valuable resource in right-sizing your expectations and preparing you for market realities.
