After we determine your home care agency’s worth, it’s time to start preparing the business for sale. This means creating attractive marketing materials, getting everything in order such as tax returns, insurance policies, leases, and ensuring all documentation is complete and up to date.

Advertising and a sophisticated digital marketing plan let the right audience know you are actively looking to sell your home care agency.
