When is the best time to sell my business?

Business owners often wait until they have to sell the business because of personal or family circumstances.

It is better for the business owner to sell the business after a period of solid performance without this pressure. This allows the business owner time to prepare the business effectively for sale.

Nevertheless, businesses can be sold successfully under virtually any circumstances.

John Hornblower, Managing Broker of VR Business Brokers in Aspen, Colorado, can guide you through the sale of your business confidentially and professionally.

Selling Business with VR

Are you thinking about buying a business?

Buying an existing business is often cheaper and less risky than starting a new business. Even if you have a unique idea for a new business, it is generally preferable to expand the scope of an existing business instead of starting a new one.

The statistics support this choice. Over half of new businesses fail before the end of their third year. By buying an existing business, the risk of failure is reduced, and the startup costs are built into the price of acquiring the business.

Acquiring an existing business can also be financed more easily. Many banks offer SBA guaranteed loans for acquisition financing and working capital. VR Business Brokers can help facilitate the financing of your business acquisition.
