The Business Sales Market, March 2021

The phones are ringing, the emails are flowing, the websites are getting hits, yes, buyer enquiry is happening!

Yes, there is and will continue to be uncertainty in the world however that is the new normal, adapting to change will be key.

So what is happening? South Australia, for those like me that have always lived here, in our city and our beautiful regions, we have all known forever, it is a great place to live and work, it is even more so in today’s pandemic world.

Families are seeking a lifestyle with opportunity and safety, people are looking to diversify their investments, grow an existing business, control their financial destiny.

That is why buyer enquiry is so strong.

So what are these buyers looking for and how much have they got to spend you ask?

Well, across the small and medium-sized business sector, we are talking to qualified buyers looking to buy profitable businesses in the $500,0000 to $5M price bracket, looking for opportunities with business with revenues of $1M plus. 

Sectors of specific interests include agribusiness, specialised manufacturing, food retailing, recreational businesses, for example, fishing, boating, off-road vehicle accessories and professional services (e.g. financial planning and accounting firms) are all popular with interested buyers.

Challenges are the availability of business acquisition finance, which will be a topic of another BLOG.

One thing we know for sure though is that there will always be someone wishing to sell and someone wishing to buy a business.

However, when it comes to selling, it is having you and your business ready to go and that takes time and commitment, the results from such productivity are significant.

We not only help people through the sale process all the way through to a successful outcome, we help people prepare, transforming businesses and in turn transforming lives.

Without sales talk nor commitment, why not begin the journey with a confidential discussion on your business

While COVID-19 has caused (and continues to cause) a lot of uncertainty, it has also highlighted the incredible lifestyle and quality of life that South Australia has to offer, which is resulting in particularly strong local and interstate interest.
