Connecting You with High-Quality Buyers
One of the most important things that our brokers do is connect you with high-quality buyers. When you are selling a business, it is unlike selling a house, car, or any other product. You are limited to how many buyers there are. You can’t sell to just anyone.
It is absolutely vital to the long-term success of the sale that you only work with high-quality buyers. At Morgan & Westfield, we take steps to ensure that you only work with buyers who are qualified. A buyer must be both financially qualified and operationally qualified, that is, the buyer must have the skills to run the company.
Our intermediaries personally screen all buyers who are interested in your business. We interview them and research their qualifications. Buyers are also asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
You can even require that they make a contingency-based offer to ensure their seriousness. Through taking these steps, our brokers connect you with high-quality buyers who are both capable of purchasing and qualified to operate your business.
Why Are High-Quality Buyers So Important?
There are many reasons why it is so important that you only work with qualified buyers. In order for your sale to be successful in the long term, you need to be somewhat selective about whom you sell to.
This is particularly true in cases where the sale is seller-financed. Some level of owner financing is involved in 80% of business sales. If you offer seller financing and sell to a buyer who is not capable of running your company to its potential, they may default on payments.
If your buyer doesn’t repay their loan to you, you may have a legal battle to force them to satisfy their repayment obligations. To settle this debt, a buyer would have to return ownership of the business back to you to help recover your losses.
However, if your buyer fails to repay you and you take your business back, your company may be in a less than desirable condition. It may be in a position that is not profitable, resulting in more losses.
Our business brokers work hard to connect you with buyers who are highly qualified to help prevent something like this from happening to you.
Another reason why selling only to high-quality buyers is important is to be able to command the best possible price for your business. More reputable buyers are able to pay a higher price for your company and will take the sale process seriously.
This can mean that not only will you get a higher price for your business, but it may sell faster. Buyers who are not well-qualified or who are just looking for a good deal will be unwilling to pay higher prices.
More unqualified buyers lengthen the negotiation process in hopes of getting you to agree to a lower price. The short-term and long-term success of your company’s sale depends on the quality of buyer you have for your business.
Our experienced brokers at our Providence, Rhode Island office will ensure that all potential buyers are properly vetted. This will help us find the most qualified buyer we can for your business.
