When Is The Best Time To Sell?
The best time to sell your business is from January through October. Peak season blacking out November and December leaves us with several months to actively market your business. Deals that close from January through mid-summer typically see sellers training the new owners for up to 30 days after closing. Sales that close after mid-summer through the fall usually have the seller staying on longer to help the new owner through peak season.
Other external factors that could influence the price of your business include local and national economic conditions, interest rates, and investor confidence, to name a few. Buyers are seeking stable, well-run turnkey investments.
