Find a Small Business for Sale in Clearwater FL

If you are looking to start a new business in the Clearwater FL area finding a business opportunity or buying a local established business for sale can be one of the best ways to start your own business. Buy a profitable, established, local business for sale with a customer base and earnings. Optionally, you can find a franchise opportunity or an existing franchise for sale in Clearwater FL which will get you some training and support form the franchisor along with some assistance in business setup, marketing and even financing as most franchisors have established relationships with small business lenders or have a streamlined loan approval process from SBA approved lenders. While it is harder for new small businesses to generate cash flow and/or to obtain business loans, if you are buying a local small business on sale or an existing franchise on sale with revenue and cash flow, you may be able to qualify for financing from local banks or small biz lenders to obtain a business startup loan, which makes it easier to buy and grow an existing small business.

Buying a Small Business from a Business Broker vs a Business Owner in Clearwater

Many potential business buyers search online for a Clearwater FL business for sale by owner and and may be it is because many potential buyers are led to believe that they can get a better deal, if they buy the business directly from the business owner rather than buying it from a broker. However, most small biz owners are hard core entrepreneurs and in reality and the way human nature works, most sellers will always want a higher price and many sellers price the business higher than what it is actually worth, whereas an experienced broker will price it based on the market metrics and valuation, so that they can sell the business quickly because keeping a business on market for too long by pricing it disproportionately higher can be counter productive. Secondly, despite websites and marketplaces like our's which facilitate any business owner to sell a business directly, most 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 Florida related industry will price it based on the market metrics and valuation, so that they can sell the business quickly because keeping a business on market for too long can be counter productive. Hence, buying a business from a qualified Clearwater FL area business broker can be beneficial contrary to what some buyers tend to think.

    Selling a Business in Clearwater

Selling a business can be a lot of work and can take a long time - if you do not want to hire a business broker then you need to do additional marketing, tracking and monitoring leads - there is more to it than just listing it on a few websites. This in itself is a process and can take a lot of your time. Selling a business can also be once in a lifetime event for most people and no matter how well versed you are with your business and the process of selling it, one small mistake may lead to a huge loss or a botched deal, it is recommended that you always seek advice from a 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 negotiation.
