REA CPD - Business Sales: Appraisals

Price: $ 29.95+GST

A critical part of a licensee’s business sales role is carrying out a thorough appraisal of a business and presenting this to the potential vendor client. Licensees need to convey the appraisal to the potential vendor clearly, concisely, and with all required information included. The sale of a business is a significant transaction, and the potential vendor client needs to be provided with accurate, well-researched information to make an informed decision on whether to sign an agency agreement, and ultimately whether to proceed with a sale.
