Deciding to Sell Your Funeral Home
Control the Timing
Conditions in the overall economy, in the funeral home industry, and growth trends in your company are largely out of your control. Yet these factors are vital to a successful sale. Although you can’t control them, you can prepare and then watch the external trends. When conditions are on the upswing, you’ll be ready to seize the opportunity.
If you can show that your business is healthy and that it has potential for future growth opportunities, you are selling a positive future and can command a good price. A steady pattern of growth and profits is likely to convince a buyer that these trends will continue. Considering the value of your business well before you intend to sell gives you plenty of time to fix problems so that when it is time to sell you can present a healthy company and good prospects for the future.
