Selling a unfurnished apartments rental business? You'll need to be prepared to address a variety of challenges that are common in the business-for-sale marketplace.

If your exit strategy involves selling an unfurnished apartments rental business now, you need to apply the right combination of preparation, strategy and common sense.

When to End Negotiations

Negotiations have a way of dragging on forever. There are countless details that need to be hammered out before a Letter of Intent can be prepared and the process can move on to the due diligence stage. As the seller, you'll be on the front lines of negotiation and will need to know when it's time to bring negotiations to an end. In an unfurnished apartments rental business sale, a stalled negotiation can be an indication that the deal is dead. At this point in the process, an awareness of negotiation parameters really pays off. If the buyer is unwilling to accept your minimum demands, it's time to end negotiations and move on to the next prospect.

Maintaining Objectivity

Objectivity is a rare commodity in a business sale. Sellers typically overvalue their companies compared to the rest of the marketplace. 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. Consider recruiting a team of objective professionals to help manage your expectations as you prepare and negotiate the sale of your business.

Leveraging External Resources

There are a range of professionals available to guide you through the sale of an unfurnished apartments rental business. Brokers can be an important resource for your sale, especially if you are unfamiliar with the business-for-sale marketplace. Additionally, you may want to hire professionals for legal, valuation and other functions before you put your business on the market. In most cases, your sale strategy will call for the assistance of outside professionals at various stages throughout the process. Early recruitment makes it easier to execute your strategy without unnecessary interruptions.
