PREPARING TO SELL YOUR BUSINESS

Selling your business should never be an impulsive decision.   You will probably have a timeline in mind to sell your business, however timing is generally set by current climate and the price required.

We have over 40 years experience in selling businesses throughout the North-West.  More importantly, we have gained a great amount of knowledge of the achievable price for your business.

Here at Harvey Silver Hodgkinson we often compare the selling of a business to selling of a home.  The same attention to detail on presenting your business in the best possible way ensures a smooth sales process.

TOP TIPS TO ENSURE THE BEST PRICE WHEN YOU SELL YOUR BUSINESS

  • Make certain the premises are clean and tidy throughout – first impressions really are important
  • Even small property maintenance jobs 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 opportunity to clear them out
  • Replace any broken light bulbs & any light maintenance

CRITIQUE YOUR BUSINESS AS A POTENTIAL BUYER

We would also recommend you spend 15-20 minutes walking through the business as a potential buyer. As you walk through observe and note each room of the business and any areas for improvement.

As a business owner we are often guilty of working in our business rather than on our business becoming oblivious to what we pass every day.  It is also beneficial to ask a friend or family member to do the same and for them to be honest. Compare the suggested improvements.
