Smart Business: Why You Need A Broker When You’re Selling

meetingThere are many reasons to use a professional Business Advisor/Broker such as Apex Business Advisors. Here are a few (in no particular order of importance):

  • We sell lots of businesses and that’s all we do.
  • Sellers typically will sell one business in their lifetime and often make a mess of it on their own.
  • We know the right professionals to bring to the transaction to ensure a smooth closing, such as attorneys and accountants.
  • We expand the market and make the market for your business. Maximum exposure while maintaining confidentiality.
  • The seller needs to run the business and not spend time dealing with “tire kickers” on Craigslist or from other advertised sites who aren’t serious buyers.
  • We know the pitfalls and the warning signs in deals and can help steer around them.
  • We understand the market and what drives business value and will give you a really good handle on your true business value. It’s an art and it takes many years of experience to master.
  • We bring buyers who are serious and qualified from all over the world. Buyers are already in our network and waiting for the right business.
  • We have great relationships with the banks who can make the deal happen.
  • A seller needs a facilitator or a filter to handle the buyer and the process.
  • It’s better to use a broker to assist in the negotiation, keep relationships strong and maintain professionalism throughout the process.

These are just a few of the reasons why having a professional Business Advisor/Broker in your corner is just smart business when you’re looking to sell. To learn more, give us a call at (913) 383-2671.
