Buy or Sell a Business

Whether you should buy or sell a business depends on your current situation and goals. Here's a breakdown to help you decide:

Buying a Business

  • Pros: Be your own boss, establish yourself in an existing market, potentially higher income than being an employee.

  • Cons: Requires significant capital, inherits existing problems, may take time to turn a profit.

Considering buying a business? Ask yourself:

  • Do you have the capital to buy a business?

  • What industry are you interested in?

  • Are you prepared to manage a business and its employees?

Selling a Business

  • Pros: Cash out on your hard work, potentially enjoy retirement, allows you to move on to other ventures.

  • Cons: Letting go of something you built, may not get the price you want, finding the right buyer can take time.

Considering selling a business? Ask yourself:

  • Is your business healthy and profitable?

  • Is the current market a good time to sell businesses in your industry?

  • Do you have a buyer lined up, or do you need to find one?
