The ProBuy Program is good for six months but most of my business buyer clients end up buying a business usually within three to five months from start to finish. The cost of the program is a one time $800 fee (payable via check, credit/debit card, or eCheck). There are no other fees associated with this program for my services during the program.
This fee covers consulting & pre due-diligence (Phase 1) on all deals: is the deal priced right? can you get financing on the deal? what deal points about the business should you be concerned about?, getting you prequalified for business purchase financing (and getting you the financing needed for your purchase), getting the right team/advisors (transactional attorney, escrow/bulk sale services, etc.) in place to assist you, etc.
Buying or selling a small to mid-sized business can be a confusing and/or frustrating process. For over twenty-five years I have assisted buyers, sellers, agents and brokers with online and offline tools and currently advise (ProBuy & ProSell Programs) motivated business buyers & sellers with buying and selling small and mid-sized businesses.
Here Is What You Will Receive From The BizBen ProBuy Program (For Business Buyers):
* Determine What Types/Industries/Categories Of Small To Mid-Sized Businesses Would Be A Good Match For You
