“It seems to me that qualified buyers outnumber quality businesses to purchase.  When quality businesses are marketed to stand out from the hundreds of sub-par listings, we can expect great offers.” remarked Pablo Fonseca, Business Broker in Riverside, CA with  1-800-Biz-Broker.

The sales of businesses has been growing over the past several years, but has it reached a peak?  The graph below seems to imply we are at or near a peak.  But if you consider that a tsunami of Baby Boomers will continue to retire and sell their business throughout the next decade (and beyond), we should be in a bull market.  You can see yourself, the thousands of business for sale listings on sites like www.BizBuySell.com   This is why the service of an experienced and professional Business Broker with the knowledge to properly package and market a business is key to ensuring that the quality listing stand apart.
