How to Sell Your Veterinary Practice

Are you thinking about selling your veterinary practice? This convenient guide will help acquaint you with the process.

  • Step 1: Make sure your business and financial documents are in order.

It’s vital to ensure your business and financial records are up to date before beginning the process of selling your practice. When conducting due diligence, prospective buyers will want to review your financial records and other legal documents.

Consider your specific needs and options, such as planning for retirement, investments, and how long it may take to sell your practice, for example.

  • Step 2: Schedule a consultation with an experienced veterinary practice broker

Selling a veterinary practice requires the assistance of an experienced industry professional to navigate the many variables in the process. For more than 15 years, Practice Sales Advisors has built long-lasting relationships, successfully matching practice sellers with buyers. Since our professional team handles the entire transaction, you can continue to manage your practice with peace of mind.

  • Step 3: Obtain a Practice Appraisal

How much is your practice worth? A practice appraisal, also referred to as a practice valuation, is a snapshot of your practice’s revenue growth and profitability to determine its current value. Ideally, you should have a practice appraisal every three to five years. A practice appraisal is an essential tool for understanding your practice’s current value so you can plan for the proceeds you may receive from the sale.

  • Step 4: Practice Marketing

Once you are ready to list your practice for sale, a professional marketing campaign will reach prospective buyers. We create a customized mass media marketing campaign that includes advertising in industry publications, mailers and exposing your practice listing to prospective buyers looking for veterinary practices for sale across the internet for maximum exposure. In addition, we take care of all the sales and marketing expenses with no upfront cost.

  • Step 5: Buyer Recruitment

Once marketing efforts are underway, our team works diligently to find the prospective buyer who will be a perfect fit for your practice. Our firm works directly with individuals, brokers, partnerships, corporations, and other buyers who have an interest in purchasing your veterinary clinic, hospital, or specialty practice.

We set up facility tours, handle the negotiations, work with lenders, and prepare contracts and other documents to facilitate the sale. Although Practice Sales Advisors takes care of the entire sales and negotiating process, the decision on whether to accept a buyer's offer is always entirely up to you.

  • Step 6: Closing the Sale

Once we find the perfect buyer for your practice, we’ll begin the closing process to finalize the sales transaction. The closing process generally takes six to eight weeks, depending on lender approval and whether your practice includes the sale of real estate. Your sales advisor will keep you informed every step of the way.

Finally, on the designated day of closing, the funding for the purchase is received, ownership of the practice is transferred to the new buyer, and you receive the proceeds from the sale. Congratulations!
