The Realities of Selling a Privately Owned Business

The Realities of Selling a Privately Owned Business

Selling or Buying a buisness

Business owners need to accept that:


  • It might be better to liquidate the business than to try to sell it


  • The revenue size of the business impacts the value of the business


  • There will most likely be one buyer for a business rather than multiple bidders


  • The offer is most often less than the owner believes a business is worth


  • It takes substantial time and effort to sell a business


  • Selling a business can be an emotional experience


Yes, there are numerous other items that add and subtract value for a business that is for sale, but owners need to remember that a public, or large privately held, business will have different value indicators than a small privately held business.
