According to industry data, on average, only between 20-30% of businesses listed for sale actually sell. Why don’t they sell? Often because owners choose the wrong business broker or go to market without a the right business sales professional advising them. Most business brokers will list almost any business a seller will agree to list, often at unreasonable asking. They take as many listings as they can get. Then employ the time-honored process of “hope and wait.” At Axon and Associates we do not believe in the “hope and wait” theory of business sales. We will provide a reasonable expectation of value and a realistic assessment of what needs to be accomplished for a successful sale. If your business is not ready to take to market, we will tell you along with some real world suggestions on how to become ready. With 20+ years experience selling businesses, we know what it takes to create success. The bottom line is that a high percentage of businesses Axon and Associates take to market sell.
