How To Buy a Business Without Getting Screwed

In business, growth is an imperative, not an option. But only one in ten companies succeeds in achieving sustained, profitable growth. Growth strategy is at the heart of what we’ve done for more than 40 years.

How To Buy A Business Without Getting Screwed

It’s a Seller’s market. Those are the tough words that no buyer wants to hear when they are searching for a business

But it’s the truth. Today’s market is tough.  Simply put; there are more buyers – with money – than there are good businesses for sale.

Have you been calling around to listings you find online only to discover that the business has been sold? Or perhaps the broker never calls you back, the earnings in the ad never seems to equal the true earnings of the company? Or, perhaps most frightening of all, you eventually realize that the broker you are talking to represents the seller NOT YOU! How well has it worked for you so far – not very well I would imagine.

Those are some of the key reasons why you need the services of a Buyer’s Broker to assist you in your acquisition search. A Buyer’s broker represents your interests  in a business transaction and:

  • Uses his or her contacts and relationships to find businesses for sale that are NOT yet listed, or that are NOT listed in traditional media.
  • Aggressively pursues listings from other business intermediaries and business brokers to find you the right business that matches your true interests and goals.
  • Searches nationwide for situations where national companies are divesting themselves of Arizona based divisions
  • Helps level the playing field when negotiating with Sellers

Best of all the services of a Buyer’s Broker typically are free to the Buyer. The broker is compensated at Closing in a co-broke arrangement with the Seller’s agent similar to a residential home sale. As a buyer, that means that you receive all the benefits of dealing with a Buyer’s Broker without cost.

As a professional Merger & Acquisition advisor, a large percentage of my work is representing buyers as a Buyer’s Broker.  I partner together with my clients to help you make the right acquisition. The right acquisition means, the right business, at the right price and terms, and a business that is right… for you.

When you’re serious about acquiring a business in Arizona, put me to work for you.
