Valuation is a key factor for Restaurant owners looking to sell their business. Establishing a fair market value of a business is not easy but the listing price you come up with will be an important determinant.
Many business sellers have very unrealistic expectations as to how much their business is worth and they attach a very high value to the business than its actual worth.
It is helpful to hire a professional valuator to help you set a selling price and determine whether a buyer’s offer is reasonable. A professional restaurant appraisal /valuation will hold more sway with potential buyers than numbers generated in house.
Restaurant appraisal and valuation require an enormous amount of research, experience and judgment. We try our best to ensure that not only are valuation techniques methodologically correct; we also aim to reach a value or valuation range that corresponds to a market value of a transaction, should the restaurant be sold shortly after the valuation date.
In other words, in our valuations we routinely seek to arrive at a definition of fair market value (FMV) “the amount at which property would change hands between a willing buyer and a willing seller, neither being under any compulsion to buy or sell, each being aware of the relevant facts.”
