What looks good or just fine to the seller could make quite the opposite impression on prospective buyers. The weathered sign out front that the seller thinks is "rustic" might strike a buyer as in need of a fresh coat of paint. On the other hand, improvements planned by the seller may be either unnecessary or wrongly-conceived. In either case, sellers would be wise to rely on the advice of a business broker--a professional with experience in dealing regularly with buyers and with the objectivity required to set the business scene to its best advantage. Of course, preparing a business for sale goes beyond outward appearances. Ultimately, a business will sell according to the numbers. A business intermediary can be invaluable in helping the seller provide financial records that are clear and up-to-date.
