Sell A Business

Whether you started your business years ago, took over or inherited a family business, or purchased an already existing business, making the decision to sell your business can be difficult. Most business owners have experienced difficult periods when they temporarily wished they could quickly sell their business. However, a truly motivated seller is someone who has made a decision to sell after careful consideration. Indeed, a business owner who is considering selling should be able to clearly answer the question "Why do you want to sell your business?"


There are many reasons business owners decide to sell. Some of these reasons are as follows:

  • Retirement
  • Partnership Disputes
  • Relocation
  • Health Issues
  • Lack of Time to Successfully Operate the Business
  • Tired of the Business
  • Boredom/Lack of Challenge
  • Declining Profitability


Whatever the reason you may be considering selling, the actual marketing and selling process can be challenging and even overwhelming. Many questions that need to be considered include:

"What is my business really worth?"
"How do I market my business?"
"How do I keep the sale confidential?"
"How do I find a qualified buyer?"
"How do I negotiate with a prospective buyer?"
"How do make time to market the business, meet potential buyers, write offers, etc."

I used Capital Business Brokerage to successfully sell our trucking company.  It was a pleasure to work with Greg and his team. They were able to bring in a couple of potential buyers and work hard to find the perfect buyer for our business.  I highly recommend their services, knowledge, and expertise. They are the team you want to be working for you.

Throughout the years, Capital Business Brokerage has sold both to me and for me many auto-related businesses, restaurants, nightclubs, laundromats, and other businesses.  In addition, they have successfully sold, both to me and for me numerous commercial real estate transactions.  I highly recommend Capital Business Brokerage and Capital Commercial Group, Inc. whenever you want results in a business or commercial real estate transaction!

Capital Business Brokerage recently sold our Wesley Berry Flowers location in Canton, Michigan.  They definitely did what they stated they would do.  Thanks to Capital Business Brokerage, we were finally able to retire after 25+ years in the flower business.  We would absolutely recommend them to anyone who wants to sell their business.
