Business Valuation – Determining the Value of Your San Diego Business

Once you hire a business broker, the next step is a thorough business valuation. This step is vital because it determines several things – including the listing price. Unfortunately, many business owners throughout the country, let alone the San Diego area, can get this wrong. Because it can be difficult to remove oneself, you may find that your business should be worth much more than the market may indicate. It is important to be as neutral as possible, to not value your business too high or even too low.

At Transworld San Diego North, we have business valuation experts on our team who know the San Diego area business market. You need to know that business valuation is not an exact science. It’s not so much what you think your business is worth, as it is what a buyer thinks it's worth. There are a great number of factors that go into determining what your business is worth to a buyer – and what they are willing to pay to take it off your hands

We will examine your financial records to evaluate several factors that will affect the list price, including the below. Completing an accurate business valuation will help set an attractive, yet fair, selling price. Taking a deep dive into your financial records also helps our San Diego team identify any areas that should be addressed before listing your business.

  • Sales for up to the last five years
  • Projected growth
  • Market conditions
  • Current inventory and assets
  • Location and condition of the physical property
  • Value of your brand identity in the area
  • And much more
