Sunbelt’s business brokers know the market and have access to a database of active buyers—owner-operators, financial buyers and strategic acquirers—looking for businesses.
Our extensive network of professional contacts among accountants, lawyers, bankers, business coaches, consultants, wealth planners, insurance experts, venture and entrepreneurial sources also ensures that active buyers in the market are routinely, and in some cases exclusively, referred to us.
Sunbelt saves you time by prequalifying prospective buyers’ resources and potential for assuming your business, eliminating “tire kickers;” you keep your full attention on running your business to keep it in top shape while your broker is selling it for you.
Our brokers focus on finding the right business for the buyer. Starting the transaction with a buyer that has the necessary experience, skills, ethics, financial resources, risk tolerance and passion is more likely to lead both parties to a successful outcome.
Close the sale
Sunbelt business brokers are trained to sell businesses. And that’s what they do! Sunbelt sells more privately owned businesses than anyone else in the world.
Businesses offered through business brokers have a much higher listing-to-closing rate than those offered through realtors or listed directly by business owners. In Canada, Sunbelt’s business brokers close seven out of 10 engagements to sell a business.
In general, business brokers successfully close between one out of four and one out of seven listings. Real estate agents close about one out of 20 business listings. For-sale-by-owner (FSBO) businesses close at a lower rate.
