Thinking about selling your shop? This discussion should start a 24 to 36 months before putting your business on the market. There’s a lot to consider; that should be made a year or two before the business goes up for sale. 

Shop sale negotiation help

You just don’t “sell” your shop: There’s lots of questions.

What’s the local market? How much is it worth?  Do I tell my employees? How do I find a broker?

And, In most cases, the business broker works for the deal – not for you! Then, when you find a buyer, there’s months of due diligence, further negotiations above and beyond the intent contract. We’ve been there. Done that. Let us help you through a successful sale onto retirement, and beyond.
