Time. Selling your business assets can be an uphill battle and the biggest obstacle of all is time. In order to get you to the next step in your life and secure the best price possible, it’s important to plan well in advance so that you can identify and prepare for potential problems.  

Can price prevent an item from selling? 

Time and time again we see sellers run into huge problems by overpricing or underpricing their items. Above all, price is the biggest driver for your sale.
