App Businesses for Sale

A mobile application or app is a computer program or software application designed to run on a mobile device such as a phone, tablet, or watch. Mobile applications often stand in contrast to desktop applications which are designed to run on desktop computers, and web applications which run in mobile web browsers rather than directly on the mobile device. Apps were originally intended for productivity assistance such as email, calendar, and contact databases, but the public demand for apps caused rapid expansion into other areas such as mobile games, factory automation, GPS and location-based services, order-tracking, and ticket purchases, so that there are now millions of apps available. Many apps require Internet access. Apps are generally downloaded from app stores, which are a type of digital distribution platforms. The term "app", short for "software application", has since become very popular; in 2010, it was listed as "Word of the Year" by the American Dialect Society.

Starting vs Buying a App Business for Sale

Starting or buying and running a App Business or Technology related businesses such as App Businesses for Sale, Mobile Apps Development Design businesses or complimenting and supporting services such as ... etc., can be an exciting, challenging and a rewarding experience especially, to those who are passionate about their work.

If you are interested in starting a small App business or related company, buying an established App business or an existing App franchise for sale near you or buying a Technology related online business, can be one of the best ways to start your own small business. It is fairly easy to start a business in current times but making it profitable and keeping it profitable is not easy and only a small percentage of startups stay in business beyond five years and only a few reach consistent profitability. There are several advantages in buying an existing App or Technology related business with an established customer base when compared to starting a new App company and it may also be easier to finance an existing business than to obtain financing for a new start-up, wherein the banker will want you to show assets and collateral along with a solid business plan, before even considering providing any financial assistance. This is no different than financing a vehicle or real estate with a small down payment rather than paying the full price but and the lender is happy to finance as long as the business is cash flow positive, instead of paying the full amount but only in case of buying a business, the amount can be so large that most people do not have the money to make an upfront purchase and even if they do, most small and large businesses are financed via debt or equity financing.

You may consider buying an established App Businesses for Sale, Mobile Apps Development Design ... etc., Instead of just thinking about the main product or the business, also think about other opportunities that may exist with regards to services centered around a App business or if it is possible to rebrand or introduce complimenting or other related services such as ecommerce, distribution, and customer acquisition possibilities, etc., While there are many considerations, when it comes to buying a business and the purpose of this page is not meant to outline all the details on how to buy a App business, the first and foremost factor is that, one would want to find a profitable business to buy and it is great if it is with business financing arrangement in place with pre-approval for a loan from a SBA qualified lender or a third-praty lender and better if it is a owner financed company but in some cases established businesses and aged shell companies are bought even if they are not profitable. In many cases the company or product can be re-branded later or additional services can be added to existing business to acquire and expand market share but also to finance and even to go public, such as a recent example of an electric vehicle start-up that bank rolled their startup by acquiring a shell company and went public. Also, keep in mind that while starting a new App company is not too hard, running a business is not easy and making it consistently profitable and growing it is another thing because a vast number of small business that are started will usually fail within first few years and a small number of them are consistently profitable. Hence, buying an existing App Businesses or franchise with cash flow can be a better option, depending upon the type of business and its finances.

Buying a Small App Business from a Business Owner vs Broker

Many users seem to be searching online for App Businesses for Sale, Mobile Apps Development Design & and ... related business for sale by owner and may be it is because buyers are led to believe that they can negotiate better with the owner or get a better deal. Despite websites and marketplaces like our's which facilitate any independent small business owner to sell a business directly, most small Technology businesses are still sold through brokers and hence no FSBO websites & marketplaces have been successful. Also a very few businesses listed by owners eventually get sold because most sellers price it higher than what it is worth or do not use real valuation metrics, whereas an experienced broker in the App - Technology related industry will price it based on the market metrics and valuation, so that they can sell it quickly because keeping it on market for too long can be counter productive. There are also other advantages of dealing with a qualified and experienced broker but in the end whether it is an FSBO business or listed by a broker, everything depends on the real value of the business, current market conditions.

Whether you are buying a App business from an independent small business owner or form a broker, the most important factor or the first step is to evaluate the business to make sure the business is priced right or at a discount. You can either use an evaluation software or in some cases you can find valuation metrics online or you can hire an accountant, CPA, professional appraiser or a broker who can use provide a good valuation. While the valuation metrics differ with the type of company, industry and current market conditions, the most used metric for valuation is based on EBITDA or SDE ie Seller's Discretionary Earnings. Buying a small business can be once in a lifetime event for most people and before you put your hard earned savings in the business, always seek advice from a qualified business professional such as licensed broker, M&A advisor, consultant, small business accountant or a lawyer with regards to verification of finances, drafting contracts and price negotiation.
