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."

Capital Business Brokerage sold my Papa Romano's/Mr. Pita combo store in Sterling Heights in April, 2016.  This is the third business transaction I have completed through Capital. I am very pleased with the results I have experienced and would highly recommend Capital Business Brokerage to anyone who is looking to sell their business or buy a business.
