How do I know when it’s time to sell?

Bay Area Business Brokers

Retirement. Boredom. Burnout. Health. Family obligations.

If you’re already thinking about selling your business, the best time sell is when your earnings are high and the economy is flourishing. If your business has a healthy cash flow even if the market is not doing well, however, your business can still have a high valuation. An experienced business broker will advise you on the market timing and valuation of your business.

There are other questions to consider, however, when timing a sale.

  • Has your business reached a financial point where the proceeds from the sale can give you financial freedom and fund a post-ownership lifestyle of your choice?
  • Have you lost the passion or enthusiasm you once had for your business and feel driven to move out and on to something else?
  • Are you consumed with worry about running your business and concerned about the effects on your physical and mental health, or your relationships with others?
  • Is your business on auto pilot, and you feel you are no longer needed to run the company?
