Best Selling Businesses in 2016

Admin one comments

As a Business Broker, I have found that a business will sell when the following three items are true:

  1. The business is profitable
  2. The business has opportunities for sustained growth
  3. The business has good records and verifiable books.

Without regard to the industry, if I represent a business that satisfies the above 3 conditions, experience has taught me that I will find a buyer.  However, I have also found that certain industries do sell better, sometimes faster, and more often than others.  Restaurants come to mind., one of the leading websites that lists businesses for sale, has just published their annual “BizBuySell Insight Reports”.  According to BizBuySell, these are the top 20 business types that sold in 2016 (by number of closed transactions).

Sell your Business Confidentially

Admin No Comments


Keeping the sale of your business confidential is paramount to not disrupting your day-to-day business operations.  However, how do you find a buyer for your business, without alienating your key employees or losing important customers?

When you use a business broker from 1-800-Biz-Broker, you can be assured that they are experts at confidentially marketing your business for sale.

Some of the practices we employ are using “blind listings”, and non-disclosure agreements.  For example, if “Mike’s Downtown Cleaners” in downtown LA is for sale, we might promote it as an “Established Dry Cleaner in a Major Southern  California  City.”  Then when a potential buyer contacts us, we promptly request that they complete and Buyer Profile and Confidentiality or Non-disclosure Agreement.

Completing a non-disclosure agreement is also a critical part of pre-screening potential buyers, which is another important step in finding the right buyer for your business.

If you are thinking about selling your business, give us a call.  Our Business Brokers are experts at confidentially marketing your business for sale.  You can reach out to us in complete confidence, just use the contact form or call 1-800-Biz-Broker today.


8 Reasons Businesses Don’t Sell

Admin No Comments

Not every business listed for sale will ultimately sell. In fact, some trade groups in our industry have stated that less than 10% of businesses that are listed “for sale by owner” will actually sell!  They go further and say that businesses that are listed by Business Brokers actually have a 40-50% probability of selling.  That’s a 4 to 5 times improved rate of success, when a business uses a business broker!  As a business broker, this is great, but I know why this is the case.  I, myself, as well as other Business Brokers (as least the good ones), screen the businesses we want to work with.  We have limited time and resources, so we want to take on clients who’s businesses we KNOW have a greater chance of selling.

There are a number of reasons why business don’t sell.  Here are a few…

From the Buyer Side:

  • They long to be a business owner, but they really don’t have the risk profile to actually pull the trigger
  • They are influenced by a partner or spouse to not buy a business
  • They have no concept or are unrealistic about the commitment, resources, process, or risk that is inherent in buying/operating a business

From the Seller Side:

  • Unrealistic price
  • Poor documentation
  • They are not honest about the business and/or its success
  • They have a partner with different goals
  • The Sellers are unaware about the tax implications of selling the business
