There are a number of questions to ask when selling a business, and today I want to share a brief story with you on this topic. Recently, some people came to me talking about the topic of wanting to sell their business.

Selling Your Business or Exiting Your Business?

After asking a few questions, we found that what they really wanted to do was exit the company but still have the revenue that comes in from the business. We all know that property management has consistent income. So, what are some things you can do when you’re thinking about a plan to exit your company?

Documenting Policies and Procedures

If you’re a sole proprietor, the first thing you need to do is to begin getting things that are in your head out of your head and onto paper. That includes all your policies and procedures. Put together your procedures checklist and all of the policies that have helped you run your company. Gather your forms and checklists and any of the things that you may have developed over the years.

Use the Procedures Checklist to Hire and Train

Start putting those policies and procedures in place so you can begin delegating your responsibilities down to employees. Or, if you need to hire someone, you can use those same tools to train the new team members so you don’t have that fear of losing control.
