Many small business people don't realize that it is possible to get a professional to value your business. This need comes about for a number of reasons. You might need to value your estate, value the business to split among family members or you might want to sell the business and need to know how to ask a reasonable price.
It is one of the things that makes business brokers, like Pacific Rim Business Consultants different from the realtor you might deal with to sell your home. Some of the principles used in valuing a home are the same but the application of these principles is usually very different.
The reason you need the valuation is usually very important and therefore you want it done correctly and accurately. Look to a professional to get it done for you. This is something you don't want to guess about.
