Have VR Appraise Your Business Periodically

If you're a business owner, do you know how much your business is worth? If you don't, you're not alone. The majority of small business owners in today's market do not know the value of their business. Additionally, there are fewer who have exit strategies in place.

Most people have an annual physical checkup to monitor their health; receive a monthly or quarterly review of their financial portfolio to see what needs to be changed. Having your business appraised and periodically updated should be no different. If you had your business valuated years ago, it's time to update.

Avoid Making Costly Mistakes in Buying a Business by Using VR 

Hundreds of thousands of businesses change ownership each year. Many try to buy a business on their own or use improper representation that can cost you more than what the actual price should be in the sale. Buying a business is one of the most important transactions you will make in your life. Educate yourself so you can avoid making a costly mistake.

Not Seeking Professional Consultation 
Some entrepreneurs make the mistake of not using professional representation when looking to buy a business. You will want to consult an advisor that has experience in both the buying and selling of businesses. Without an experienced VR business intermediary, the cost for a mistake by either a buyer or seller can be great both financially and professionally.


 
Speak to a VR business intermediary today about what to look for when considering business opportunities to purchase.

Signs Indicate Economic Recovery to Continue Throughout 2012
Rise in Profits Leading to Increased Small Business Growth

The economy continues to improve according to new data that indicates higher than projected expectations. In a recent Business Week article, many analysts believe that that the second half of 2012 will bring continued growth, which includes areas in consumer and business spending, home building and manufacturing.

 

Due to many businesses keeping a tight overhead, profits have risen steadily. In the second quarter of 2011, profit rose at a 19.3% annual rate from the previous quarter. Profit margins continued to grow in the last quarter at much higher gains than at the end of the last economic downtown. With revenues projected to continue to increase, many businesses will take the incoming profits and start building their inventories, purchasing new equipment and hiring new employees.  

 

With the latest economic projections, now is the time to look into buying a business. At VR Business Sales, we offer thousands of businesses for sale in all industries. We stand alone in our industry with our decades of experience and innovative tools that have facilitated 100s of thousands of successful business transactions since our inception in 1979.

SBA Sees Rise in Small Business Lending
Biggest Boom in a Decade Signals Bank Willingness to Approve Entrepreneurial Applicants

The more financing that is available, the more business owners will push forward with growth and development.  

 

There are a number of financial institutions that VR recommends you examine when seeking financing for purchasing a business:

Keeping Yourself Open to Buyer Inquiries for Your Business
All businesses are inquired by a variety of different buyers - some are qualified while others are tire kickers. If you're a business owner, you may not be thinking of selling right now; however, the time will come when you hit the wall and decide right at that moment you need to find a qualified buyer to take over the reins. Therefore, if a buyer walks through the door of your establishment and give you an offer, don't turn it down first.
