Why Should Businesses be Sold or Purchased in a Confidential Manner?
If you are looking for a hotel/motel or business, we typically know the properties that owners wish to sell on a very discreet basis. Putting your business out there makes people wonder. It creates an air of uncertainty that can be detrimental to your bottom line.
Employees get nervous as they begin to worry about their jobs – some may even quit. Customers begin to wonder – they become concerned about new owners offering them the same service. Competition will spread the word or use it as ammunition against your business, potentially stealing your business or employees.
Buyers want successful operations with few changes. Too many questions translates to greater risk and lower purchase offers. When buying or selling, you want to maintain business as usual.
We are diligent in protecting your information and determine those that are seriously interested and qualified to buy.
Our fees and terms are spelled out on a listing agreement with the seller. Within this agreement is the commission due to the broker. We work on a commission basis only receiving compensation when a business sells. The commission is based on a % of the selling price or on a flat rate basis. The listing agreement is an exclusive listing for a set period of time. Since we are a family operation and not affiliated with any franchise, we can offer lower commission fees.
