With the growth of web and online business it is logical that a website owner might one day look to sell their website. Traditionally, a business broker normally sells a business. However, the rise of the web has demanded a more specialized skill in determining the value, preparing, marketing and selling of websites.
Jock Purtle, of Broker Corp, has this to say about the web investment market, "We are seeing strong demand for good quality web business. The relationship we see between web assets and traditional real estate is very similar. The automated systems of a website and low reliance on staff make it a good investment." He also commented, "Traditionally it may take anywhere from 3-12 months to sell a business from start to finish. We are seeing some sites sell within a week and the buyer has received ownership after 3 weeks which is very fast."
Mr Purtle believes there are several factors that influence the value of a website.
-with premium domains
-have an existing active community
-take recurring yearly income
-have multiple income streams
-that are highly systemized
-have strong earnings history
Websites that have the above traits are prime for sale in the open market. Brokercorp believes that the industry is only going to get larger as more players move into the market to buy and more businesses start to grow and develop on the internet.
