We provide you with practical answers to the basic questions all sellers ask when considering to sell a business:

  • Before I sell my business, how do I determine my business worth?
  • What kind of financials do I need to provide when I sell my business?
  • How do I ensure confidentiality when I sell my business?
  • If I want to sell my business, what is the most effective way to find qualified buyers?
  • What kind of financing is available to potential buyers?
  • How do I deal with "off the books" transactions when I sell my business?

Selling a business is an intricate process that requires a very specific expertise as well as the ability to solve problems in a practical yet creative manner. We do realize, however, that all businesses are unique and that applying a "cookie-cutter" approach to selling your business will not be the most effective method. We always try to tailor our marketing and procedures to accommodate the needs of your business and your concerns. Our intent is always to keep you informed and involved in the sale of your business. We know you want the freedom to concentrate on your business while we find you the right buyer.

    For Buyers:

    Have you considered being your own boss? Creating your own financial independence? Making your own dreams a reality? Are you looking for a business to buy? You're not alone. Owning your own business is the "American Dream." However, the reality is that owning a business is a serious financial and personal commitment that requires an understanding of what makes a business successful. All too often, new owners jump blindly into buying a business, only to be overwhelmed by the tremendous workload of starting a business from the ground up. A government survey shows that 60% of new businesses fail within the first three years. Buying your own business is a substantially less risky prospect. An existing, established business that is purchased by a new owner shows a lower failure rate.

    Buying a business is a major decision. It will affect you financially and change your lifestyle. How you live your life is shaped and influenced by how you earn your living. If you have decided that now is the time to consider buying a business, we can provide you with the professional assistance necessary for a smooth and successful transaction. Search our listings for a business to buy or contact your local office to find the right business for you. We'll guide you through the entire process of buying a business and help you find the right business to buy.
