How to sell a business or property?                         

May 31, 2011

So you’re thinking about selling… and not sure where to start? Business and property are the biggest investments were likely to make in 
our lifetime. So when it comes to selling we can get rather protective and emotional towards the thought of letting go. Once you have come to terms with the emotional side, in steps the financial. Am I going to get enough money? How much is it worth? Do I seek an advisor? Should I sell it myself? Should I get a broker or agent? What about the legalities.. and the list goes on.

When selling the 'bigger things' there are two main options. A Business Broker/Real estate agent or selling it yourself. In Australia all Business Brokers and Real Estate agents need to be registered in order to give advice and sell on your behalf. They have usually completed a course at TAFE, college or through an institute. Their prime objective is to value your business / property, advertise, deal with buyer enquires and negotiate the sale. Depending on the brokerage or agent you have gone with they may provide additional services such as helping with due dilligence and open houses.

Lets take a look and compare what a business broker does and what you as a business owner can do:
