What we offer for potential Buyers:
The biggest advantage in buying a business that is already established is that you as the new owner enjoy immediate income from the businesses current CASH FLOW and the sales from the ESTABLISHED CUSTOMER BASE.
We assist you in obtaining financing for buying a business. Banks can be reluctant to finance business purchases for several reasons. A major reason is that many small businesses attempt to minimize profits shown on financial statements to reduce tax liability. Therefore, over ninety percent of business purchases are financed by the owner themselves, which demonstrates their confidence in the ongoing success of the business. However, we have a strategic finance business partner that will take your application online and search over 50 financial institutions for you to get the best loan deal for you. This service is quick, easy, confidential and available upon request.
Unlike the sale of real estate or franchises, the sale of an ongoing business is very confidential for both the business seller and the prospective buyer. All inquiries are held in strict confidence, and any meetings and correspondence are handled with the utmost confidentiality.
THINGS A BUYER SHOULD KNOW
We at Lesdon & Associates are advocates of finding a business for sale that you like and feel comfortable learning to manage. You, like every other prospective buyer, have a vision of being your own boss and controlling your own future. At Lesdon & Associates we want to find the right business to match your requirements.
An old saying in the real estate industry is The three most important things a buyer should look for are location, location, and location. While location is important to when buying a business, be aware that track record and management round out the three components of a successful business. Lets assume that you find a business for sale that you like and its location is fine. You may find that because of poor management, the business may not show the greatest track record. Purchased for the right price and terms, this business could become more successful with proper management making it a good way for you to achieve your goal of being in business for yourself.
Finally, be aware that some businesses for sale sell for much less than they are originally listed, sometime even 50% of the original asking price, depending on many factors. So, if it is a business that you like, don't be afraid to make what you consider to be a "low offer".Lesdon & Associates has made no independent investigation or verification of information presented herein regarding business opportunities and makes no representation or warranty as to the completeness or accuracy of such information.
