Productive Negotiations To Help You Sell Your Business. 


We help overcome common objections and hurdles that occur during due diligence and negotiations-you will want to have your business broker present your case to a buyer, particularly at times when it seems like things could get unpleasant. For example, if you need to make a counter offer, let your business broker handle it. You and your buyer may need to remain associated after the sale and an aggressive confrontation during the negotiation could sour the relationship.



Buying a Business?

Why Buy an Existing Business?


With so many options available to you, the questions will become which vein of the business-ownership arena should you pursue? Between franchises, existing businesses, start-ups, home based businesses and MLMs, it does become a bit overwhelming. When reviewing all of the possibilities you have to decide what will work best for you; however, your chances of success are clearly best when you buy an existing business or franchise resale for many reasons. With any new business you have two main challenges; developing the product or service and then seeing what, if anything, people are willing to pay you for it. Regardless of a company's past performance, an existing business or franchise will. at the very least, have a history from which you will be able to make certain decisions. Even if the company was not profitable in the past, your strengths may lend themselves perfectly to turning it into a viable venture.



How to Value a Business 


Accurately valuing a small business is often the most challenging part of the process for prospective business buyers. However, it doesn't have to be an overwhelming or difficult undertaking. Above all, you should realize that the valuation is an art, not a science. As a buyer, always keep in mind that the "asking price" is not the purchase price. Quite often it does not even remotely represent what the business is truly worth. Naturally, a buyer's valuation is usually quite different from what the seller believes their business is worth. Sellers are emotionally attached to their business. They usually factor their years of hard work into their calculation. Unfortunately, this has no business whatsoever being in the equation. The challenge for you, the buyer, is to formulate a valuation that is accurate, and will provide you with an acceptable return on your investment.


Due Diligence- How to uncover any problems BEFORE you buy


Due diligence is probably the most critical stage in the buying process. Many prospective buyers incorrectly identify this period as strictly a financial review, but it goes far beyond that. Due diligence encompasses a far greater project and that being the complete investigation and review of the business. One of the keys to buying a good business, comes from your ability to learn the intimate details of the business. to identify the strengths, weaknesses, pluses, minuses, growth opportunities and areas of concern. If you do not do a flawless job of gathering information, you will not be able to pull the trigger and complete the transaction since you'll be uncertain about too many components of the business. 


Business Brokers - How They can Help You! 


Once you begin to speak with a broker, if you feel good about their attitude, follow up and arrange to meet them. Keep in mind that you want them to keep an eye out for the hottest listings for you. To accomplish that you must convey several things to them:

  • Show them you're serious. A business broker wants to be sure that if the right opportunity comes along, you'll be ready to buy!

  • Prepare a laundry list of the types of businesses you're interested in purchasing

  • Present them with your personal financial statement

  • Tell them precisely how much money you have to invest

  • Ask them for suggestions as to how you should conduct your search

  • Ask them to show you how to best navigate the Internet

  • Call them regularly, at least once a week.
