Should you sell your business through an agent or go it alone?

If you have decided to sell your business, you might be wondering where you start. Selling your business is probably one of the biggest decision you have ever made, and if you’ve never sold a business before, it can be a daunting process. 

Many business owners choose to use an agent to help them sell their business, while others chose to do it on their own. In our latest blog, we take a look at which could be the best option for you.

What are your priorities?

If you have opted to sell your business, it’s likely that you will want to do it sooner rather than later. After all, no one enjoys a dragged out process when you could be moving on to your next venture. What’s more, you likely have a busy lifestyle with family, socialising and continuing to run your business in the process, so having the sale lingering over your head can be draining.

If your priority is to achieve a fast sale for low fees, you may have found your perfect match in Bizdaq. Choosing a third party to help you market and sell your business can be a scary thought; after all, it’s likely you have put a lot of your precious time and resource into building the business, and it’s natural to be protective over it!

However, not all agents are created equally. At Bizdaq, the process of selling couldn’t be more straightforward, even if you’ve never sold a business before. 

How can a business agent help you?

If you decide to sell your business on your own, you will no doubt spend hours trying to market your business in the best possible light, and researching how to find buyers. If you already have a seller in mind, going it alone may be easier; for example, if you are simply passing on the family business.

However, if you are selling to the wider market, you might need a helping hand. In this instance, partnering with a business agent could make the process a little easier on your resources and schedule.

The traditional method of selling a business can be slow and expensive. In today’s world, this isn’t effective. Instead, Bizdaq have utilised modern technology to create faster sales and increased value in the selling process. 

Our online platform allows you to manage your sale around your own time, so there’s no untimely meetings or calls that clash with your personal schedule. We have a team of expert consultants who are able to value your business and offer guidance throughout the whole process. What’s more, you can communicate directly with buyers to move things along at a pace that suits you.
