Services for Sellers
GBB Value Estimate (GVE) is an estimation of the worth of what is being sold.
This encompasses everything from legal and litigation to streamlining at the higher end to provide informal valuations to ensure you are targeting the right kind of buyer with a fair valuation based upon our fact-finding.
We charge a flat fee of only $2500 that is very competitive given our team and our extensive buyer client base. Our estimates have proven to be accurate within an 8% range of our valuations.
GVE’s are crucial in helping us access our entire database and external searches we undertake on a global scale if required. However, GVE’s are also valuable for other reasons, we also provide a competition breakdown so business and asset owners can use this to compare and help forge a business plan over the coming years.

We devise exit strategies and in conjunction with our (GVE) we also thoroughly review and provide a written business report, some sellers can use this to be implemented immediately where we search our client base to find suitable buyers, or this can be a blue-print for the future, this is at the sellers discretion.
