Selling or Buying a Business??--the Law of Supply and Demand applies

As the economy slowly recovers, buyers’ confidence level increases and with that comes a greater demand for businesses available for sale.  Buyers, who were waiting for the bottom of the recession to hit prior to making a decision on buying, now find themselves competing for quality businesses in this market.  However, as can be expected, businesses which survived the recession now have less competition and with less competition come increase market share and profitability.  In fact, business…See More

Ways to Increase the Value of your Business

Unfortunately, sellers often ignore one very simple truth: The value of their business increases in direct proportion to the buyers’ decrease in risk. I think this is a very important element of valuation and, as such, should be very well understood by those looking to sell or currently selling their businesses. So, the less risk the more value you may be able to get for your business buyers will compete with price to get at your business. So, let us discuss some of the things that will make…See More

Buying a Business??--Why Sellers Sell their Business.

Recently, I was having a meeting with one of my network colleagues. During our conversation, she pointed out how leery she was of businesses for sale. When I asked why, she indicated that if the seller wants to sell the business is because it is not doing well. I found her response interesting and immediately indicated to her that sellers sell for a variety of reasons, most of which are not related to poor performance, cash flow or profitability issues. Here are ten (10) other reasons:1.…See More

Social Media and Philosophy

Have you noticed how most everyone in Social Media do their best to express a thought, reprint someone else's sentences, speeches, etc?  It is as if being a philosopher of sorts make us better at social media--Better to point out needs, requirements, feelings, etc. Is it a pre-requisite?  Can we just not simply be us?  Why is it necessary to add value, be creative, or a psychologist for us to be a core member of the many social media networks out there?   By the way, some of it, I truly enjoy,…See More

Selling or Buying a Business??--Is there an Economic Upturn?

There is no doubt that a major topic of discussion (and concern) today for most of us is the economy. One of the main issues regarding a market where unemployment nears ten (10) percent (or 20% for those who include workers who no longer submit claims or are simply working on a part-time basis, or simply gave up), is whether the recession and/or the recovery is underway. Based on two continuous GDP growth quarters, most economists would indicate that the recession is over—and has been since…See More

Selling your Business?--What Happens after you Sell it?

Ok, so you are lucky enough to have sold your business. Now what? One of the things sellers normally forget is the closing process. In one of my previous articles I mentioned that among the many things Business Brokers do for sellers and Buyers is to manage the closing process once a Purchase Agreement (sale) has been made. As brokers, we normally manage three (3) key areas after a Purchase Agreement has been signed: The Due Diligence, Lease Assignment and Closing Process.During Due Diligence,…See More

Selling your Business??--Get it Pre-Qualified!!

As I mentioned in one of my previous blogs, the Small Business Administration (SBA) has relaxed some of their policies in regards to lending. I said before that they “became a lot more flexible by making changes to the acquisition policies impacting purchases which included Intangible Assets. These changes give “Preferred Lender Providers” (PLP) more flexibility to provide business loans WITHOUT going through the SBA for final approval. In addition to providing PLPs with greater flexibility,…See More
