Buying a practice isn’t like online shopping on an impulse, it takes a lot of planning, preparation and thoughtful thinking to know without a doubt that you are ready to take that step. Whether you’re buying your first practice or your third, buying a practice is a big financial and emotional decision.
Firstly, deciding you’re 100% ready to buy is the big first step there’s a few major factors that come into play and ticking these off your list is a must, these include, of course, figuring out if you’re financially ready is number one when preparing to buy a clinic. Making sure you are ready to own a practice and know exactly what it takes to keep a practice running is another huge part of buying, if you’re buying your first practice make sure you’ve done your research and know what you’re getting into, on the other side of the spectrum and this isn’t your first practice, make sure you know how you want this new practice run and making sure that you’ll be able to juggle having a whole new clinic to handle and all that comes with it. Once you have made sure you are financially ready and ready to own, run a practice and know what comes with it there is another major step in making sure you are ready to buy.
Being emotionally ready is one of the most important parts to get a grasp of before deciding to buy. You’re going to have to manage your time, from talking and negotiating with sellers to having inspections and visiting different practices and making sure that the one you buy is right for you. All these things take time and most importantly your time. It doesn’t have to be a stressful time, by making sure you’re physically and emotionally ready, and have the time and patience to go through all the steps of finding, buying and negotiating for the practice is part of the process that you are going to have to sort out before you get out there and start looking for your new investment.
