When buying a business, it is important for us to understand what kind of buyer you are. OVBA quickly assesses what is driving you as a buyer to in order to narrow the focus on which business is right for you.
There is often a big difference between what a business owner thinks their company is worth and what they know they know their company is worth. We have a Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser (CMEA) designation so that all the appraisals we provide are certified.
Business valuation is like putting a stick in the mud so that you can look back and see your progress. What is measured gets acted on. Proper valuation of your business can be vital to making good decisions.
