It might just be, and here’s why… January is often when prospective business buyers have the time to sit down and do a bit of forward planning and subsequent investigating. So, if your business is not on our website xcllusive.com.au, or one of the other business-for-sale type sites, then it cannot be found. Meaning now is the time to do the pre-work to get the business on the market by end of 2018, in readiness for business shoppers at the start of 2019.

If you’re unsure when to pull the trigger, there are typically 3 considerations when thinking about selling your business:

  1. Financial (money driven)
  2. Freedom (personal driven)
  3. Legacy (business driven)

Whilst Financial is often the one that is led with (because it is the most tangible place to start), it is not the only reason to sell. Freedom and Legacy play equally important roles in determining when to go to market and even who to sell your business to.
