To help a business sell quickly and profitably, a business owner should focus on ensuring the business is in a saleable condition before taking any actions to sell the business.
Addressing Problems for a Higher Valuation
By identifying and effectively addressing problems, the business becomes more attractive to the purchaser and thus will be likely to sell more quickly and for a higher valuation. Further, a clean transaction will also make the company look better in the eyes of a bank or other financier who may be involved in later stages and on which the purchaser may rely.
