Deals can fall apart for any number of reasons. But, as this article states, most of those reasons stem from expectations.
As a buyer or a seller, you enter into the process with expectations. Having expectations isn’t unreasonable. But, if managed poorly, expectations also have the potential derail a deal.
Of course, there are lots of decisions to make before closing a deal. But managing your expectations will also help the process.
Remember that everyone has to do their due diligence. In this case, careful preparation will prevent any unnecessary surprises. Knowing the value of your business, or the business you’re hoping to purchase, will get rid of any uncertainty as you enter negotiations.
Proper disclosure and communication also prevent unnecessary surprises. By being as present as possible throughout the process, you make the transition easier for vendors, relevant personnel, and additional stakeholders.
