Selling a business can allow that business to achieve great things under someone else's leadership,
freeing you to start a related business, to start a business in a new field, or to pursue other goals and
aspirations apart from business and flush with capital from your sale.
How long will selling my business take?
Selling a business takes about 6 months give or take a few months, and can be quicker with an excited
buyer and a seller who keeps or can gather good business records.
How can I help my business sell?
Ensure all your financial information is up-to-date, accurate, and complete.
Settle or otherwise nullify any pending litigation, city or county violations, or other potential liabilities.
Renew any periodic licenses associated with your business.
Continue to run the business as is until the closing date.
How do I market my business discreetly?
Continue maintaining and growing your business while a brokerage service like ANA Brokers seeks, screens,
and engages potential buyers. We recognize the importance of confidentiality when looking to sell your business,
and we keep any and all information about you and your business in the strictest confidence before, during, and
after the marketing process.
Additionally, you can market your business yourself, but this will often be limited by the amount of time
and effort you can divert from your business and other commitments.
How do I sell my business after I've found a buyer?
Essentially, you should ready all business property and assets for transfer to the buyer in exchange
for a sufficiently large monetary compensation. Also, you'll want to make sure that you know about and
disclose any possible defects, caveats, or other liabilities associated with the property and assets, since
these are likely to turn up during due diligence and the buyer may assume you were "hiding" liabilities
regardless of your actual knowledge of them.
Why use a broker?
We've navigated the selling process many times. ANA Brokers actively seeks out and markets your business
to potential buyers across a wide network of personal and professional contacts. We know who to look for,
