Sell Your Business Yourself - Not a Good Idea

March 18, 2010 - PRLog -- In many cases, the business for sale represents the seller's life work. Being the independent type to begin with, as well as someone who knows about deals and sales, the tempting notion sometimes arises: Why don't I handle the sale of business myself? Those sellers with similar temptations should first take a look at the steps necessary for the successful business sale- and at the advantages of taking those steps in tandem with the best possible professional guide.

According to a recent article published by Business Exchange it states, "PREPARING THE BUSINESS FOR SALE

What looks good or just fine to the seller could make quite the opposite impression on prospective buyers. The weathered sign out front that the seller thinks is "rustic" might strike a buyer as in need of a fresh coat of paint. On the other hand, improvements planned by the seller may be either unnecessary or wrongly-conceived. In either case, sellers would be wise to rely on the advice of a business broker, a professional with experience in dealing regularly with buyers and with the objectivity required to set the business scene. Of course, a business will sell according to the numbers. A business intermediary can be invaluable in helping the seller provide financial records that are clear and up-to-date."
