Orlando Business Brokers

Orlando Business Brokers

Selling your business is a major decision and it is imperative that you find the right Orlando business brokers to handle the transaction.  It could make the difference of whether your business actually sells.  Without the proper business brokers your business may remain on the market with little or no activity or if you do get it under contract it needs to be properly navigated to ensure closed transaction.  So doing your research to find the right Orlando business brokers is important.

In the State of Florida, it is a law that business brokers be a Florida licensed real estate brokers/agents.  Most Florida business brokers are not members of the National Association of Realtors since most professional, successful business brokers only handle the sale of businesses.  It is highly suggested that a seller of a business does not use the services of a residential real estate agent regardless of the size of the business.  Even the best residential real estate agents do not have the knowledge, contacts and tools to handle the successful transfer of ownership between two parties. An inexperienced real estate broker could cost you more money, time and legal issues than it is worth.

Most Florida business brokers, especially Orlando business brokers belong to an organization called the Business Brokers of Florida (BBF).  This organization has an MLS system, contracts, by-laws and standards that are better suited for professional business brokers.  You should make sure that the business broker that you decide to enlist to sell your Orlando business is a member of the BBF organization.

The BBF is a fantastic organization with many talented business brokers.  However, like any large organization, there are some great members and members that are not as good.

Below is a list of Orlando business brokers and their websites.  Of course we want you to call us about our services.  We hope that you and Boss Group International are a great fit for each other and we work together to sell your business.  However, you will need to interview a few different Orlando business brokers to determine which best fits your needs.  We feel confident, that even if you speak to our competitors, you will find us to be the better company to help you sell your business.

We have tried to include all the Orlando BBF members that have websites on this list, but we can not guarantee they all are here.  If you know of one that is not, please contact us and we will add them.  We also, in no way, either recommend or not recommend any of the companies listed below. We provided the list for you to do your own research and to do it more quickly.

Please be sure to include us in your list of business brokers to call.  The Boss Group International LLC Orlando phone number is 407-329-3273.  We hope to hear from you.

Best of Luck!

Orlando Franchise Ice Cream Store for Sale

May 2nd, 2012

Just Listed:  A very well known franchise ice cream store is up for sale.  This franchise is known for premium ice cream with the finest ingredients.  Entrepreneur Magazine ranks this franchise as one of the fastest growing Franchises and is in the top 500 franchises.

It costs nearly $350,000 to open a new one of these franchises.  This already open location is only for sale for $95,000.  Sales have dropped due to the recession.  This maybe a good time to buy at a low price.   The business would also benefit from new energy to help increase sales.  This store has been open 10 years and the current owner has owned it for the past seven years, so it is known in the local area.

The store is located in a great suburb of Orlando, Florida near a busy intersection with no close competitors.  The facility is 1600 square feet and rent is $4,050 a month.

There are currently five part time employees and one manager.  The owner is a working owner, averaging 32 hours a week.

The current owner is looking to retire and will help train the buyer for two weeks in addition to the franchisers required corporate training.

If you are interested in learning more about the business, please contact one of our Florida business brokers.  Please take the time to search all Florida businesses for sale to see other businesses currently listed for sale in Orlando.

Buying a Florida Business Tips: Part 1

May 1st, 2012

As a Buyer you want a quality business.  You want to  know the background information and see financial information on that business.   As a potential Buyer you should realize that the business Seller expects the same.

The Seller of a business wants to know information on you, what your experience is and what your financial status is.  If you are looking to buy a Florida business and you want to be taken more serious among both sellers of businesses and business brokers you should do some prep work.

By demonstrating to a Seller and business broker that you have the experience and have the financial capabilities to operate and purchase the business, you will probably receive more information prior to an offer and will have a better chance of securing financing from the owner.

There are three crucial items that you should prepare for yourself if you are considering purchasing an existing business operation.  All three are confidential in nature.  Only brokers and sellers of the businesses you are requesting information from need to see these items.  Remember, you will be asking for confidential information from the Seller, it’s only fair they see who they are providing it too.

The first is a Buyer Profile.  This is used strictly by your business broker, and is not given to a seller of any businesses.  The Buyer Profile outlines information that will help your business broker find appropriate businesses for sale that suits your capabilities and needs.

The next important document that is needed is either a buyer’s bio or a resume.  You can use either one.

If you use a buyer’s bio, you should type it instead of handwriting it.  It looks more professional.  Just ask yourself, which would you feel more secure about, a description of the Seller’s business that is written or typed?

Even better is to create an actual resume.  It may take a little more time, but it gives a better impression to the Seller.  If you do create a resume, makes sure that you tailor the resume so it is clear that you are a buyer and not a potential job applicant.  This can mainly be achieved by your description at the top under “Objective”.  If you are looking at different types of industries, you may want to have a few resumes each a little different that highlight your strengths for each industry.  This would be no different than adjusting your resumes to reflect your strengths for different jobs you would be applying for.

The buyer’s bio and/or resume are extremely important so you can demonstrate to a seller that you are qualified to operate their business.  If you are considering asking a seller to finance a portion of the sale this is crucial.  A seller is not going to provide financing if he/she does not think you have the experience to run their business.

Lastly and most importantly is your financial net worth statement.  The financial net worth statement outlines your assets and your liabilities.  It will demonstrate to the Seller that you have the financial ability to purchase his/her business or not.

If you want to be taken serious by business sellers and business brokers, having these documents and supplying them at the time you request information on a Florida business for sale, will greatly increase their perspective of you as a serious buyer.

You can now begin the next phase of the process by searching for businesses for sale.
