Thinking about selling your tampa business? If so, I’m sure you likely have mixed emotions—a sense of excitement at starting your next adventure, mixed with a bit of sadness that this chapter of your life is coming to a close. You may also feel a little overwhelmed or intimidated thinking about the process, and anxious about ensuring your business sells for what it’s worth. But the right tampa business broker can help make the sales process go more smoothly.

Vikings Tampa, Florida business brokers have been in your shoes. Many of our brokers / advisors have created, bought and sold their own businesses, so we know what it takes to get potential buyers interested. Whether you’re simply considering selling your Tampa business or your mind is already made up, here’s what you need to know:


If you price your business for sale without first getting a credible valuation, you take the chance of missing out on profits or of pricing your business too high for the market. Work with a business broker whose track record of sales proves the accuracy of their business valuation process. Request a Free/ Confidential business valuation at Viking.


Different business brokerage firms have different fee structures, so it’s important that you know what to expect before you get started. Avoid brokers who aren’t upfront about their fee structure, or who promise to discuss fee structure later in the process. And be certain to ask your broker about additional fees—for example, from the legal team that will close your business sale—so you don’t have any unwelcome surprises.


Serious potential buyers will want (and need) to see your business financials to determine if your business is a good fit for their needs. But window shoppers, tire kickers and competitors have no business getting a peek at your inner workings. Work with a business broker who focuses on keeping your personal and business data confidential as one of their top priorities.


The sales process is just that—a process. It isn’t something that happens over the course of a few days. That’s why it’s so important for your Tampa area business broker to explain to you their sales process and why it works. Feeling confident two weeks or two months into the process will reduce your stress levels and allow you to focus on what’s really important without getting distracted. Work with a business broker who is forthcoming about their sales process and there to answer questions and address issues if they arise.


Different types of businesses have different types of prospective buyers—for example, some businesses are a good fit for an individual owner/operator while others are more appropriate for a private equity firm to take over. As you’re considering business brokers, ensure that the one you choose has experience with the types of buyers you need to attract.
