All-Inclusive Selling Platform – How it Works

#1: Check the Status

Our business-selling process will help answer these questions:

  •   Are you ready to sell?
  •   Is your business sellable?
  •   Is your business prepared for sale?
  •   As the owner, how much money do you need from the sale?

#2: Prepare for Sale

Here's where ExitAdviser's business-selling tools play the key role.

  •  The Business Valuation tool uses the discounted cash flow (DCF) method to come up with an objective, earnings-based outcome, helping you to support your asking price with prospective buyers.
  •  The Sales Memorandum tool highlights key information that serious buyers will want to know.
  •   The Go-to-Market tool's Ad Editor helps prepare your offer to hit the market.

#3: Go to Market

ExitAdviser launches your advertising campaign on Google, driving prospective buyers directly to your business listing's landing page.

Alternatively, with the Pitch-to-Brokers tool, your offer will be confidentially sent to a number of nearby business brokers.

#4: Close the Deal

Get Your Paperwork Ready

Our service includes a full collection of downloaded sales documents (forms and templates) to help you during the closing process.

Typically, you'll require a commitment in principle from the buyer – a Letter of Intent. Following due diligence and detailed negotiations, obtaining signatures on a Business Sale Agreement is the final step of the process for both parties.

At the closing stage, we advise business owners to use the services of a local business lawyer to make sure every detail is accounted for.
