Selling a Hotel for First Time Sellers

If you’re selling a hotel for the first time, it can be an overwhelming experience. There are a lot of considerations you have to make, and a lot you have to do. Luckily, there are some ways to make the process easier. Today in the Southeast International Hotel Brokers blog, we’ll talk about some tips for those who are selling a hotel for the first time.

Selling Tips for First Time Sellers

Here are some guidelines to follow when selling a hotel:

Use the Services of a Hotel Broker

Using a hotel broker, especially when you’re a first time seller, really is one of the most beneficial things you can do for yourself. They can make the process much easier for you, and they know everything that you need to know in order to sell your hotel. Having this experience and knowledge is absolutely invaluable. They truly can give you the best possible guidance through the selling process.

Be Familiar with the Market

If you’ve owned your hotel in the area for a decent amount of time, you may already be fairly familiar with the market. Knowing what the selling market is like can help give you an edge when selling a hotel, and help you know how much room for negotiation you have when offers start coming in.

Prepare Everything You Need

When selling a hotel, there are various things that you’ll need to provide. You need financial documents and much more at the ready. You’ll also need to create a hotel listing that accurately represents your hotel and post that listing to various relevant sites.

If you utilize the services of a hotel broker, they can help you with your listing. Southeast International Hotel Brokers in particular will use our vast, comprehensive network to help connect you to qualified buyers.

Have a Plan for Offers

When the offers start coming in, you’ll want to know how open to negotiations you are. You want to give some wiggle room on the price, otherwise you might lose the offer. However, you may also get a bidding war, which is ideal. Regardless, it’s good to have an idea of what your bottom line is so you’re prepared for any situation.
