Why sell now?

Selling your business is a huge decision – the shop is your livelihood and you’ve likely formed an attachment to it over the years. For some, the business may also act as your home, so you’ll have to find a new place to live. There are many things to consider, so it’s important you establish it’s the right time to sell.

There are personal reasons for selling a business, but you should also take a look at the market and see if any trends or global economic factors will affect the sale. Is your sector growing? Are your financial documents looking healthy? Many factors could affect the value of your business, so make sure you discuss your decision to sell the convenience store with family members and a professional if needed.

A quick and easy way to assess the current value of your business is by getting a professional valuation. At Hilton Smythe we offer these free to business owners who are considering selling their business.
