The sale of your business should be thought of carefully and should never be a ‘spur of the moment’ decision. You will probably have a timeline in mind for a sale, but timing is generally set by current climate and price required.
With over 35 years experience in selling businesses throughout the North-West we have gained a great amount of knowledge on the worth of a business.
At Harvey Silver Hodgkinson we often compare the selling of a business to selling of a home and the same attention to detail on presenting your business in the best possible light is absolutely necessary
TOP TIPS TO ENSURE THE OPTIMUM PRICE FOR YOUR BUSINESS
There are a few things you can do to ensure the optimum price is achieved for your business, here are our top tips:
- Ensure the premises are clean and tidy throughout – first impressions really do count
- Could the window frames use some fresh paint? Small property maintenance can improve the chances of a faster sale
- Remove any clutter from the premises. Everybody accumulates bits and pieces over time and now is the perfect time to clear them out
- Replace any broken light bulbs & any light maintenance
CRITIQUE YOUR BUSINESS AS A POTENTIAL BUYER
We’d also recommend you spend 15-20 minutes walking through the business as a potential buyer and constructively critiquing each step of the journey from the moment you walk through each room of the business
As a business owner we are often guilty of working in our business rather than on our business and we are often oblivious to what we pass each and every day, so it is also beneficial to ask a friend or family member to do the same and be honest and compare notes as to what small but improvements could be made prior to viewings
