As a Sarasota Business Broker for the last 15 years, I have been asked that question by Small Business Owners many times. My answer is always the same… NOW!
* You are profitable.
* You have had a great run…it is time.
* Sales continue to trend up.
* Family dynamics have changed
* You are totally burnt out.
* Business is not exciting or fun anymore.
Business buyers in Sarasota, Business buyers in Manatee and really in every part of the United States where Businesses are for sale, buyers are looking for a long-time established Business with stable employees, sales that are trending upward of course PROFITABLE BUSINESSES!
I have been selling Businesses in the Sarasota, Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch and Port Charlotte areas for 15 years. As a Top Business Broker, I have seen over the years, multiple Business owners wait too long… sales downturn, best employee leaves, recession, whatever. That is why I continue to say “Now is the best time to sell your business”
