What is a Business Broker?
Posted on January 31, 2018
Selling and buying a business is complicated.
If you don’t have a guide, you’re apt to get lost. A business broker is like a tour guide, navigating buyers and sellers through a complicated landscape.
A business broker is similar to a real estate agent, but specializes in selling existing businesses and franchises.
At Business Finders Canada, we’ve seen more and more people turning to a business broker for expert advice on all kinds of issues, including properly valuing their business and getting a business ready to go on the market.
For sellers who have poured their life into a business, selling can be a delicate matter that can have an impact on employees, creditors and suppliers.
Confidentiality is key in protecting company assets, credit and marketability.
Business Finders Canada provides confidential services to business owners and business buyers. In fact, we keep a directory of pre-qualified buyers who are actively looking and have signed a confidentiality agreement.
A business broker can help with every aspect of sale, from pricing your business to marketing to the right buyer.
A business broker can also act as an intermediary between a seller and buyer.
Our brokers have in inside track into listings you couldn’t discover on your own.
They act as matchmaker, bringing sellers and buyers together, then closing deals efficiently and to the satisfaction of both buyers and sellers.
When selling your business, your focus should stay on keeping it running smoothly. You can feel confident leaving the marketing and negotiating to an experienced business broker.
