FAQ

What is a business broker?

A business broker is licensed much like a real estate agent, they either help you to either buy or sell a business, they will work with both the buyer and seller of the business and act as an intermediatory between both parties to make the transition as smooth as possible.

Why should you use a business broker?

Brokers are across all the legal requirements and necessary paperwork required to sell a business and will help business owners to prepare their business for sale, developing marketing plans, offers, contract exchanges, lease transfers, and final settlement of the business. The brokers will then assist in finding the right buyer in a series of steps saving the seller a lot of time if they were to try and do it themselves.  

Does it cost to use a business broker?

The brokers will negotiate a commission with the seller for their time and experience, much like a real estate agent if you were to sell your home.

When is the best time to buy or sell a business?

Buyers want to purchase a business when the business is doing well financially, on the other hand though sellers don’t necessary want to sell their business at this time and generally sell on a needs basis rather than trying to achieve the right price. Owners should always have an exit strategy and when starting to feel tired or disinterested this is the best time to talk to a broker about your exit strategy.
