Why work with a business broker?

An experienced business broker understands the market, has access to statistics on recent business sales, and can apply the various methodologies to guide you in determining an accurate selling price for your business. The seller naturally wants the best possible price, but if you price too high serious buyers won’t even look.

A broker can help maintain confidentiality, identifying the business only to qualified business buyers. Most business sellers do not want their staff, customers, competitors or suppliers to know they are considering selling. The broker can secure confidentiality, screen prospects, phase the release of information and expertly direct the process.

Business brokers are trained in the process and documentation necessary to protect the parties, guard against delays and problems and avoid the “wrecked” deal.
