How to Buy a Business
When you find a business for sale that you might want to purchase, please call the most convenient business broker office. We have brokers in Northern California, Southern California, and Nevada who will be happy to provide you with general information regarding that business for sale.
The business owners usually require Business Team to preserve the confidentiality of the proposed sale. So as professional business brokers, we cannot at this point give you the location, identity or detailed financial information about the business.
After you learn more about the business for sale, it may not be of further interest because of price, location, etc. Sometimes the businesses listed in the web site are already sold. If you are motivated to find a good business for sale, we suggest that you meet with one of our brokers so that he or she can get a clear understanding of your requirements and expectations.
Also, if you are unfamiliar with how to buy a business, we will be happy to outline the process and give you some general guidelines about how to determine business value. Often the best businesses are sold quickly after appearing on our web site, but once you have established a relationship with one of our business brokers, he or she will be able to notify you immediately when something that matches your criteria becomes available.
Business Team maintains a complete file on each business for sale with tax returns, leases, equipment, etc., which you may review to determine your level of interest once you have signed an agreement not to disclose confidential information.
