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

Many potential business buyers search online for a Rutland VT 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 Vermont 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 Rutland VT area business broker can be beneficial contrary to what some buyers tend to think.
