Owning a Marketable Practice

  In this article, we are highlighting the most critical factors that make a practice stand out from all the rest.  Undoubtedly, the number one factor that drives the sale of your practice is the location.  A practice sale, like any real estate sale, is primarily driven by location.  Will a buyer want to work and raise a family in the area?  A buyer’s number one factor is the location.  They want low crime, excellent schools, recreational opportunities, local entertainment, and shopping.

Broker Tips of the Month

For the Seller: Obtaining a market valuation or appraisal assures that sellers receive a fair value and buyers aren’t overpaying.  Unrealistic expectations from a seller can lead to a practice lingering on the market for a long time.  The best deal is where both sides feel that the other side got a better deal.

If you are using an attorney, make sure they are familiar with the business closing process and the laws of your particular state. You might also ask if their schedule will allow them to participate in the closing on very short notice. If you and the buyer want to close the sale quickly, usually within a few weeks, unless there is an alcohol or other license involved that might delay things, you don’t want to wait until the attorney can make the time to prepare the documents or attend the closing. Time is of the essence in any business sale transaction. The failure to close on schedule permits the buyer to reconsider or make changes in the original proposal.
