We have an excellent article here about how to sell your own business.

One of the most important parts of selling your business is advertising. Several prominent business portals are used by buyers looking to buy a business in Hobart. These include Seek Business, CRE (Commercial Real Estate), Business Bay, Business Express and the For Sale By Owner website. When advertising your business for sale with us, your listing will appear on all these websites, as well as a handful of lesser-known but still good business sites.

The business websites on which we list our businesses for sale are the same that business brokers use to find buyers. Instead of using an agent to communicate with buyers, you will be able to do this yourself. And by selling yourself, you will be able to potentially save tens of thousands of dollars in business agent fees.

2. How do enquiries and communication with buyers work?

When a potential buyer makes an online enquiry or phones up about your property, they will be in touch with you directly. You will also receive all the details of the person who has enquired, and both parties will then be able to progress from there. The main ways that buyers will be able to get your details are through online enquiries, phone calls or SMS messages, and through calls made to our office.

When selling your business in Hobart with us, you are essentially acting as the agent yourself. This means that you will need to field all calls and answer all questions that potential buyers may have. In some cases, this is something you may want to refer to your accountant. In most cases, you will communicate with buyers yourself. Feel free to reach out to us at any time if you need help with anything.

There are a great number of different types of businesses in Hobart, so it isn’t easy to give a precise and realistic time frame that would apply to any business. However, we can say with confidence that our clients have just as much success in selling themselves as those who still use a traditional business broker do.

One thing that can potentially help cut down the time your business is on the market, is website upgrades. Several business portals feature the ability for you to upgrade your listing. The result is that it will then appear higher in search results than competing businesses. Any upgrades that are available to business brokers are also available to you. This means that you are not at any disadvantage when it comes to maximising the audience that your business listing will reach.
