How to sell a store?
Many businessmen are thinking about selling their business. For example, how to sell a store that brings or can make a profit? Now we will consider this question in more detail.
First of all, decide for what price you will sell the store, including existing equipment. If accounting is conducted correctly, the economist quickly takes an inventory, sums up the cost of all the components of the store, deducts depreciation costs and as a result gets the final cost of the running business. After that, the property owner begins to look for a buyer and, to the best of his competence, does this either profitably and quickly, or long and suffering losses.
How to find a buyer
A very effective way to sell a store is to place ads in the right places. The text of the announcement of the sale is very easy, it should be short and succinct: selling a shop at a certain price, in a certain area, an operating business (or not operating), brings a steady income (or exclude this item if the shop is unprofitable) .
If the store is large and expensive and only big businessmen can be interested in them, you should think about how to sell the store with the help of serious all-Russian resources. Place your ad on profile sites. Payment for such a service is charged a little, and the effectiveness of advertising the maximum.
If the shopkeeper has created a large network of business communication while working, then in his client and partner databases you can see a huge number of contacts between individuals and companies. You can do an email newsletter. But the most attractive way to offer the purchase of expensive property is a commercial offer, printed by typographical means on quality paper. To such a letter, you can add graphs of profit, sales, assortment research, which was conducted in the proposed store shortly before this point.
The most convenient way is to sell the store to a friend, relative, friend. In order that the fact of sale took place as quickly as possible, it is necessary to try to tell that the store is being sold to as many friends as possible.Word of mouth will help to make a really good deal!
Owners, as a rule, do not have to think long about how to sell a store that works on an electronic platform, that is, an online store. If the project is successful, then the buyers themselves go to the owners and offer certain amounts. If the store is not profitable, then you can sell it using all the methods described above, providing the buyer with transparent reports and setting an adequate price.
Phased actions of the parties to the transaction
So, once a buyer is found, it is necessary to act clearly and as quickly as possible. First of all, the contract is made. Best of all, if a lawyer will provide a template and after making corrections the seller will once again verify compliance with the law. The parties to the contract should pay close attention to the following points in the contract:
- The subject of the contract - describes in detail all the property sold, the store, its storey, the area of the hall and office space, commercial equipment, its condition and depreciation period, signs, additional equipment;
- Cost of the transaction - for its determination an independent auditor is hired or the market average price is studied;
- Payment procedure - prepayment of the entire amount or partial advance payment with subsequent installments, full installment plan, full payment after the transfer of property;
- Penalties for late payment - fixed penalty or a percentage of the payment amount;
- Force majeure circumstances that may justify breach of contract;
- Coordinates and bank data of both parties, signatures of heads of enterprises.
After agreeing on all protocols of disagreements, the contract is signed.
