Getting Ready to Sell
 
It might be that the best time to prepare to sell your business is years before you call a broker.  There are many factors to think about and Pope and Associates can help in the early stages of the process. 
 
 
E1 Evaluate – Business Appraisals
 

We help you understand the value of a business valuation prior to Entering, Enhancing or Exiting business ownership:

  • An appraisal will be a funding requirement of a lending institution.

  • All “uncompromised” professionals will recommend it.

  • Business valuations should be done on a regular basis for emergency estate purposes.

  • The appraisal sets attitudes from the beginning that everything will be done correctly.

  • Securing independent third-party advice is the “common thread” in all serious decisions.

  • Appraisals remove the negative element of chance — don't gamble and leave money on the table.

  • Purchasing an appraisal is like purchasing insurance. It ultimately pays you more than you paid for it.

  • There is always the chance you will have to justify your decision in litigation — an appraisal is part of your preparation.
