Asking price vs. selling price

If the asking price is too high buyers may hesitate to even make an offer for the business. A high asking price may place the business outside the maximum price level of buyers looking for similar businesses. And those looking in that higher price range may see that the business does not warrant such a high price.

The important factor to understand is that there isn’t one magic number that your company is worth. There is a variety of valuation methods used to determine the monetary assessment of a company. Each of these methods will provide a different figure and ultimately, the value of the company is what someone is willing to pay for it.
