What do I have to consider as a seller?
If you want to sell your project, you should first be sure that you really want to. Are you not in a position in time to lead the project to the success that lies dormant in it? Then this is most likely the right decision. In this way you give someone else the opportunity to bring the project you initiated to the top in the long term with time commitment and know-how. And how high the potential is is reflected in the purchase price. In order to get as much out of it as possible, you should try to describe your project as precisely as possible and highlight this potential. This puts you in a situation in which you can negotiate with the buyer on an equal footing.
What do I have to consider as a buyer of a website or internet start-up?
As a buyer, the first step should be to clearly define what type of project you are looking for. This increases the possibility that you will be offered a suitable website or online shop. The second step is to take a close look at the offers and weigh up whether you can use your skills to capitalize on the project after purchasing. If you answer the question with a “yes”, then you have definitely landed on the Internet project that is right for you. Now it’s just a matter of negotiating the purchase price. Make sure that, on the one hand, you are getting a good deal, but on the other hand, you are appropriately rewarding the potential.
Do I need a sales contract?
Since websites are not exclusively domains, but usually a lot of content and various rights that have to be transferred in the event of a purchase / sale, a sales contract is usually the best option. It is visible to both sides, the most important things are recorded in black and white and you have a document that you can refer to at every opportunity.
Do I have to have the sale handled by a notary?
No. The contract between buyer and seller is effective even without a notary. If you want the additional security, you can take advantage of it. Signing the sales contract with a notary makes sense, especially in the case of very large and extensive companies or high purchase sums. In the case of smaller sums and smaller websites, such a step must be weighed up individually, since of course the notary does not work for free.
