As a business owner, you likely have invested many years into your successful business. What is the best way to get value for that business, now that it is time to sell? So the question becomes, how to sell a business Austin TX? In general, you have two choices. You can either sell it on your own or you can find a local business broker. While selling the business on your own will potentially save you some money, do you know this for sure? Compare this process to selling a house. Would you sell a house on your own? Why or why not? From experience, we can tell you this process is much more complicated than selling a house. For starters, most of what you are selling in a good business is thin air, or goodwill. Comparables can also be difficult, since no two businesses are alike, even if they are located right next to each other. It takes many years of experience to know what a business is worth and all of the legal and tax related questions surrounding a sale. A top notch business broker will know the answer to many, if not all of these questions. While they likely cannot advise you directly on legal or accounting questions, they know through deal experience what the general answers are. This is not something you can teach yourself at a real estate school. In a business sale, you are not just selling hard assets, as you do when selling a house, you are also selling the intangible assets. These intangibles can add up to the bulk of the purchase price and can be multiple hundreds if not millions of dollars.
We like to think we pay for ourselves through this process. How? When we help sell your business, we create demand from all parts of the country and many times, internationally.
