Good Deal or Bad Deal
Chaos or Order
6 Reasons Why Business Deals Fall Apart
Here’s the deal in a nutshell…
You’ve built a great company. Good for you!
Now, how are you going cash-out and make the best deal, for your retirement, family or future investment?
Have money in the bank, and want to do a great deal buying a business? Who can help you?
How, and when, do I start planning my exit from the business?
Do you have a realistic valuation for the business?
Your broker will make the difference!
Most Florida Brokers place their listings on a central data base. This is accessible to all members. We are members.
Prospective buyers window-shop all listings through any member’s website (click here), select a business they wish to investigate, and randomly contact a broker to start the process. Equally, most business sellers randomly select their broker to sell their business.
This random practice has many short-comings, both for sellers and buyers.
The very serious business of selling or buying a business is a big deal!
