Services provided to seller as client
Upon signing a listing contract with the seller wishing
to sell the business, the brokerage attempts to earn a commission
by finding a buyer for the sellers' business for highest
possible price on the best terms for the seller.
To help accomplish this goal of finding buyers,
a business brokerage commonly does the following:
• Ensures Confidentiality--Brokers have established
systems in place to protect the confidentiality of a business.
• Appraisals--Most business owners have no idea what their business is worth.
Certified Business Brokers are trained in business valuation and can help business owners
understand the true value of all their hard work and sacrifice.
• Market Knowledge--Brokers make their living selling businesses.
They are in the market on a daily basis conversing with Buyers.
A local business broker understands the local market as well as what a business is worth.
• Saves time and stress
• Listing the business for sale to the public, often on a Multiple Listing Service,
in addition to any other methods.
• Based on the law in several states, providing the seller with a business condition disclosure form,
and other forms which may be needed.
• Preparing necessary papers describing the business for advertising, pamphlets, tours, etc.
• Advertising the business.
Advertising is often the biggest outside expense in listing a business.
• Being a contact person available to answer any questions about the business
and to schedule showing appointments
• Ensuring buyers are prescreened so that they are financially qualified
to buy the business; the more highly financially qualified the buyer is,
the more likely the closing will succeed.
• Negotiating price on behalf of the sellers.
The seller's agent acts as a fiduciary for the seller.
By not being emotionally tied to the transaction,
Business Brokers are in a position
to more effectively negotiate on a Seller's behalf.
This may involve preparing a standard offer to purchase
contract by filling in the blanks in the contract form.
• In some cases, holding an earnest payment in escrow from the buyer(s)
until the closing. In many states, the closing is the meeting between the buyer and seller
where the business ownership is transferred and the businesses name is conveyed.
Business brokers attract prospective buyers in a variety of ways,
including listing limited details of available businesses on their websites
and advertising in business newspapers and magazines.
Brokers also directly approach prospective buyers and sellers to gauge interest.
