There are different methods for determining the valuation of a business. Want to learn the steps to determine the valuation of your business? While there are many businesses for sale in the Raleigh metro market, it is the ones with accurate business valuations that sell.
A business owner can't put a "FOR SALE" sign on their front door when they decide to sell their business. Business owners trust the professional services of Transworld Business Advisors to lead them through the confidential business sales process.
Knowing the value of your business is the first and best step to take when considering the sale of your business. Many business owners that we meet with have somewhere between 80-90% of their personal net worth tied up in one asset: the company they own.
What is the true value of your business? Valuation is the number one question of all business owners when contemplating a sale of their business. Unfortunately, there is not an easy answer, and, more confusing, there are probably several answers. Why? Because business valuation is an art, not a science.
No two businesses that we represent are alike. Our team of professionals compiles a 15-20 page executive summary that highlights the positive distinctions of each business that we represent. Our business executive summary is what buyers receive after they have signed a nondisclosure agreement and a buyer's profile.
Business owners deserve top-price for their business and they can't simply hang a "For Sale" sign on their front door. Our business brokers have the required experience for selling businesses of any industry. Our team brings offers from vetted buyers only after they sign confidentiality and buyer profile forms.
Main Street businesses are typically valued at less than $1,000,000. Main Street businesses are typically locally-owned and the likely buyer is generally local, as well. There are no business sales too small for our team of Raleigh business Advisors.

As you begin this journey, I am hopeful that this article will help guide you, challenge a few misconceptions, encourage your dreams and help make business ownership a dream come true. Remember that buying an existing business has one huge benefit by allowing you to receive a paycheck on day one of ownership.
Calvin Coolidge once said, “The business of the American people is business”.
Selling a business is perhaps the single largest financial decision that an individual will make during their lifetime. A lifetime of sweat equity, sacrifice, personal investment, strife, competition, and down-turns in the market have all taken their toll. Regardless of the reason(s), the business owner knows best when the right time is to sell their business. There are many motivations for a business owner wanting to sell.
The process of searching for a business can be confusing and mind-numbing. With so many businesses to choose from and price variances, how do you find the needle in the haystack? You may purchase one to three businesses in your life whereas your business broker does 30-40 transactions every year. A mentor is someone who has been where you have not been and they have done what you have not done.
While you may have 5-10 potential buyers, a professional business broker will have hundreds. Their marketing strategies have been shaped by decades of completed business sales.
Very few people are interested in buying a business in decline. Having a business broker representing your business sale will allow you to focus on your continued business growth.
Selling a business is extremely difficult. Someone has to manage buyers, lenders, attorneys, accountants and sellers expectations. Business sales collapse due to mismanagement.
Potential buyers need to be vetted. There are a lot of tire-kickers in business sales and your business broker will help by qualifying buyers for the purchase of your business.
It is extremely difficult for business owners to keep things confidential if they are the ones marketing their business. Confidentiality is of the utmost importance in business sales!
The ultimate goal is to close the deal so that the seller and buyer consider it a win. Business owners deserved to be paid well for the sacrifices, their investments, and hard work!
