How To Buy A Business For Sale

Starting from scratch isn’t the only way to get started in business. Buying a business for sale can help entrepreneurs hit the ground running. When most people consider starting a business, most think of starting from the ground up. However, that presents several distinct disadvantages, including marketing the new business, difficulty of building a new and loyal customer base, hiring employees, establishing cash flow, and other issues- all without a reputation or track record to go on. It can be one of the most life-altering and important decisions an entrepreneur can make.

However, buying a running business may be less dicey than starting up a new one. When you purchase a business, you take over a running operation that is already generating cash flow. You gain an established customer base, employees, and a reputation. In addition, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. i.e., set up new systems, procedures, and policies, due to the fact that the business is already in operation; unless, the business requires some major changes to stay alive.

Obviously, there is no such thing as a sure thing when it comes to business, and buying a business for sale is no exception. If you’re not careful, you could get stuck with uncooperative workers, obsolete inventory, or outdated sales and distribution methods. To ensure you’re getting the best deal, heavily consider getting a broker to help you do the following:

• Choose the right type of business
• Tale a closer look at the business
• Determine a fair price
• Never place too much faith on multipliers
• Determine the book value of the business
• Look at the estimated return on investment
• Calculate the capitalized earnings
• Determine the intangible value of the business
• Decide on a fair purchase price

Unfortunately, this process can be more expensive than starting from scratch. Nonetheless, it is easier to obtain financing to acquire an existing business than to establish a new one. Investors and bankers usually feel more comfortable dealing with existing businesses with a proven track record. Additionally, the process of acquiring an existing business, provides entrepreneurs with valuable legal rights, like patents and copyrights, which could prove extremely profitable.

Why You Should Sell Your Business With A Broker

Why You Should Sell Your Business With A Broker

While it's possible to sell your business on your own, hardly do business owners have the time, and necessary experience, to execute a successful sale while simultaneously operating the company. The last thing any owner wants when selling his or her business is a drop in performance. Selling your business can be much easier by leveraging the expertise of a broker.

Experience and Expertise

Business brokers are seasoned advisers who offer valuable insights on marketing, valuation, negotiations, prospecting and other crucial sale elements. Most brokers have a wealth of experience that allows them to understand the operational, legal and financial issues of your company and help make your sale more profitable. Their role as facilitators demystifies the selling process, allowing you to focus on operating your business as they stick to their specialty.


Experienced brokers have great access. Being in the industry for some time enables them to get multiple qualified buyers for any sale with relative ease. That type of access improves your chances of reaching favorable sales terms and getting fair market value for your business. Moreover, the risk of being unable to close a deal is significantly reduced.


Business brokers understand the essence of preserving confidentiality during the marketing and sales process. They help to protect the company's identity and contact only seller approved buyers. This helps you control the timing and the way that employees, customers, and competitors learn that the company is being put up for sale.

Negotiation Skills

Brokers are professional negotiators who know how to circumvent the sale process and overcome the obstacles that are likely to hinder the closing of a sale. They also keep things on track by ensuring all parties involved meet the necessary deadlines. Time kills deals, and it is through negotiations that brokers can reduce the chances of a deal going south.
