We strive to get you competitive offers within 90 days. Depending on financing, it may take another 30-45 days to close. Many owners will stay on for another 30-60 days to ensure the next operator is set up for success.
We value businesses based on seller's discretionary earnings. This is another way of saying the cashflow you receive as an owner of the business. This amount is typically multiplied by 2-4x depending on the business.
We focus on main street businesses based in the U.S. These businesses typically have 1 to 15 employees and revenues between $250,000 and $2,000,000.
We take a 5% commission when you sell your business, but it's completely free to test the waters.
We look at three big aspects for buyers. First, we look at their finances and credit history. Second, we look at their industry experience and background. Third, we run a background check and introductory call to ensure they'd be good culture fits.
