When is the best time to sell my business?

The best time to sell is when a business is doing well. It is best not to wait until after a business has peaked; the selling price can suffer.

However, almost any business can be sold, even if it is not doing well, if the sale is handled professionally and priced correctly.

I am planning to sell my business in the next two years. What steps should I be taking now to assure a smooth (and profitable) transition?

Business buyers always confirm the financial standing of a business during due diligence.

Are you ready to Buy a Business?

In most cases, our recommendation is that you buy an established business, as 57% of “new” businesses fail within the first 3 years.

While an established business has a built-in market base with recurring revenues, proven products or services and tested locations. Most of the time, an established business can be successfully transferred through adequate training and a planned introduction to employees and existing customers and vendors.

And often, new owners take their recently acquired business to the next level by injecting fresh ideas, better management and a renewed energy and passion.
