As Omaha business brokers, we strive to represent quality businesses with motivated and prepared sellers. With many years of experience helping clients buy and sell businesses across the Midwest and beyond, we’ve worked with many prepared and motivated sellers – which often lends to a quick and successful transaction. So, what is a prepared and motivated seller?
Business owners usually become motivated when they are burnt out or experience a major life event; prompting them to make a change as soon as possible. But often, these motivations are reactions – and when a respectable offer is brought to the table, the seller creates roadblocks for a successful transaction and slowly finds themselves backing away from a deal. This isn’t a prepared seller.
Our Omaha business brokers have seen this. Frustration ensues on behalf of the seller and keeping the buyer engaged becomes more difficult. As Omaha business brokers, we’re committed to our clients’ desired outcome. And while we’re not counselors or psychologists there is an emotional element to buying and selling a business that we can help navigate.
Addressing questions about the seller’s post-sale finances, personal lifestyle and emotions – as well as concerns about employees and customers – will help determine if a seller is prepared or unprepared. If these hard business and personal questions are adequately answered a business sale will be less stressful, more successful and will allows a business broker to do their job more effectively.
Our Omaha business brokers empower sellers by helping them work through difficult questions, guiding them toward best practices and ensuring a successful transaction. Call our experienced business brokers to move toward selling a business today.
