Have The Right Help? Why An Experienced Broker Won’t Show You Every Business In Town



You’ve just entered the business market with the intent of buying yourself a small business, and you are shopping around for a business broker to help you.

 

There are many factors that separate the good brokers from the bad – but one of the big ones is experience.

 

Rookie brokers make lots of mistakes, and if you’ve hitched yourself to their wagon for your transaction then you get to live those mistakes right along with them.

 

 

As experienced brokers, it can be very frustrating to try and work with these newbies. It becomes increasingly difficult when they are trying their hand at the business transaction process alone and without any guidance (or if they have an experienced broker they work for who has given them little to no training).

 

One of the major ways this lack of experience shows through? Too many showings.

 

What do we mean by too many showings?

 

If you’ve ever bought a house, you know that going to see a plethora of homes is part of the game – especially in a fast-moving market where a house might have multiple offers the first day it lists. This is not, however, how business sales works – so newbie business brokers (especially those fresh out of the real estate industry) will sometimes try to play the same game by attempting to line up a litany of businesses for their clients to see. It doesn’t work.

 

First of all, when you are buying a business, you are buying an existing business – one that is open and running with staff and customers. The importance of confidentiality means that the staff and customers can’t know the business is for sale. Therefore, a business seller can’t have a parade of semi-curious buyers waltzing through the front door on a regular basis – it would make confidentiality impossible.

 

If done properly, the process to go see/tour a business is much more extensive:

 

It starts by having a conversation with your business broker about what you are looking for in a business and what your goals are. You will also talk about how much capital you have to invest in a business, and your broker will then take that information and find you a number of listings to look at that will be within your budget and meet your entrepreneurial goals. Out of that initial batch of potential businesses, you will typically be asked to narrow down the choices to just a few – think two or three – that peak your interest. You will then sign non-disclosure agreements for those listings in order to receive the marketing package, complete with the name and physical location of the business. After thoroughly reviewing the marketing materials for your few choices, you will probably prefer one business over the others. Your broker will help you form a list of additional questions you have for the sellers, and you will be given an opportunity to ask those questions during a conference call including the sellers, the brokers involved and you. After all of those steps have passed and you are still very interested in the business, your broker will set up a walk-through of the physical location of the business either before or after business hours when the staff and customers are gone.

 

What you can’t do in this process is decide that you want to spend a few days touring businesses and line up 5, 10 or more “showings” with your broker. No experienced broker worth their salt is going to waste their seller’s time by trying to coordinate a visit when the buyer hasn’t even bothered to narrow down their choices or ask any good questions. It’s just not going to happen. They’re also not going to put the confidentiality of the business at risk by having too many unfamiliar people coming to the business to meet with the seller during business hours as the staff will know something is up.

 

If you ask for this type of multi-tour approach and your broker says “Sure!”, beware that you probably have a rookie on your hands. The experienced brokers on the other side of the table aren’t going to play along, and you will be stuck seeing only the businesses listed by fellow rookie brokers.

 

If you are serious about buying, get yourself an experienced broker and go through the proper steps. You will end up only seeing the businesses that are right for you instead of wasting your own time looking at businesses that don’t fit the bill.

 

Are you a first-time buyer with more questions about the business buying process? Have you had an experience with a rookie broker that you’d like to share? Please feel free to leave comments or questions and we would be happy to help.

Looking for an online business that isn’t based off of Amazon or all PPC? Then take a look at this national data company that has grown based off of a single segment with tons of room for growth.

This is a great opportunity for a new or seasoned restauranteur to own a turnkey BREAKFAST & LUNCH restaurant with approximately 125 seats and a beer and wine license. This is a great opportunity for an owner operator to buy a restaurant at a MUCH lower price then what it would cost you to build it from scratch.  This would cost you over $300,000 to build.  Kitchen and dining space is huge, and really can be taken to the next level by pushing takeout and online presence. Kitchen also has a built in BBQ smoker that is not being used.  Owned and operated by husband-and-wife team.  Three brand new AC units.  Rent does not increase until October 2027.
The value in this restaurant is the buildout, the furniture, fixtures, equipment, the low lease and the time you will save from having the bureaucracy of permitting and building.  Step in and bring your concept!!

The firm was started when the owner saw the need for a well-informed, well trained and fully capable awning cleaning company.  There are many, many awnings and canopies in use in SW Florida.  They are expensive so they all need to be cleaned and protected to extend their life. The owner has seen that good cleaning relates more to technique and the proper cleaning solutions or chemicals, than to simply “blasting” away with a pressure washer. Just because someone owns a pressure washer doesn’t mean that they are well trained and capable of solving anyone’s awning cleaning needs.  The firm offers a proprietary cleaning process and has a full line of cleaning solutions, sealers and biocides that are designed to solve their customers awning cleaning needs properly and with lasting results.  They use non-toxic, specially formulated cleaners & sealers to clean and protect awnings and canopies. They have a unique four-part cleaning process, which utilizes Hand Washing, Low Pressure Rinsing, Mold Treatment, and Protective Water Repellent Sealers, which keep the awning clean & protected.  All of the proprietary products that they use are guaranteed safe on any awning. Their solutions retain colorfastness and ensure longevity. They provide restoration and water repellent treatment, and those treatments can repair and strengthen decaying fabrics. All Awnings, Hardware and Fabric are inspected prior to cleaning.  The owner works only 20 hours per week because of other business obligations, but he feels there is a great opportunity for someone to come in and work a full-time schedule and increase the business revenues substantially. Most of the firms business is repeat customers and referrals with very little advertising currently.

Buying? How To See Past A Rough First Impression



We all know that first impressions are of the utmost importance. It’s why business people wear suits and why car dealerships keep the cars on their lots shiny and clean. 

 

Business buyers who come to the business marketplace looking for an immaculate, shiny business are in for some serious disappointment. 

 

Why?

 

Businesses (small businesses in particular) can initially seem like ugly monsters. At a cursory first glance a business that has recently listed might seem outrageously overpriced, have seemingly unintelligible financial records and look like an unorganized mess teetering on the brink of collapse. These terrible first impressions, however, mean that buyers regularly pass over perfectly good businesses just because they aren’t perfect.

 

 

Why do they look so bad?

 

Small business ownership is a tough gig. Owners who are very capable of holding everything together and helping the business grow may not be so great at keeping their books organized or at explaining why they listed the business for the price they did. As a buyer, you want a strong business, so overlooking businesses because the current owners focus more on the strength and growth of the business instead of focusing on neatly curated paperwork would be a very big mistake.

 

Another major first impression hurdle is the aesthetics – peeling paint, outdated decor, dirty floors – but again the point here is you want a business with an owner focused on the bones of the business itself, not someone who only worried that the place stayed immaculate.

 

How do I see past the ugliness?

 

Get some professional help. Business brokers look at ugly (but wonderful) businesses every day, and they can help you as a buyer navigate the shoddy paperwork and stained carpet to see what you really would be buying underneath. When you buy a business, you aren’t really buying furnishings and a sign anyway – you are buying cash flow – so having someone to help you determine what the cash flow looks like for the businesses you find interesting can go a long way towards helping you make a decision.

 

As you start your business search try to remember that in the business-for-sale world, it’s not the first impression that counts.

 

Have you been searching for a business but haven’t found one that doesn’t come across as a complete train wreck? Would you like advice about how to see past the first impression to find great businesses? Please ask us! Leave comments or questions and we would be happy to help.

3 Tips To Start Your Business Search



 

If you are thinking about taking the entrepreneurial plunge by buying a business, you may be wondering where to start. Who should you talk to? What should you look for? How do you begin a search?

 

Here are 3 tips to get your business search going and put you on the path to small business ownership:

 

Get In Touch With A Business Broker

Many new buyers think that the services of business brokers are only for sellers, but nothing could be farther from the truth. A good local broker can help steer you in the right direction – both to the right industry and businesses that you can successfully afford.

In your first conversation with a good broker you will likely discuss what your goals are for business ownership, what capital you have readily available to invest in a small business, the industries where you have practical experience and the businesses you are considering. In some cases a buyer who is considering one industry may have more success meeting their goals for business ownership (like setting your own schedule or employing members of your family) by buying a business in an industry they hadn’t even thought of.

 

Do Some Self Searching

Owning a small business is a life-encompassing affair, and before you decide what type of business would be right for you, you need to think about what you want to get out of business ownership. Have you always dreamed of owning your own bar, but you’ve never worked so much as one day in the restaurant industry? Buying a business and becoming an owner overnight can come with a steep learning curve – you don’t want to add learning a whole new industry to the mix.

You also need to consider what you want your life as a business owner to look like. If part of your reason for transitioning to an entrepreneur is to give yourself more time with your kids – then owning a business like a bar where you will work seven days a week from 3pm to 3am probably isn’t going to leave a lot of time for coaching their little league team.

 

Do An Exploratory Search

Many prospective business buyers have a general idea in their minds of the type of business they would like to own, but after a cursory search they discover that there are business opportunities out there they’ve never even heard of or considered. Do a cursory search of the businesses available in the geographical areas that interest you and you may be surprised what you find. You can start your cursory search by clicking here, and then ask us about any interesting businesses you find by contacting us today.

 

If you are thinking about joining the world of small business owners – do some soul searching, talk to a good broker and do a little exploratory searching on your own. By opening the field of available and potential businesses you will have a greater chance of finding the perfect business for you.

 

Have you thought about buying a business but aren’t sure where to start? Do you have questions about how the business buying process works? Ask us! Please feel free to leave any questions or comments and we would be happy to help.
