There can be many reasons why Brokers take awhile to get back to potential Buyer & to other Brokers and Agents if they are cooperating on the listing. Broker's reasons include: unprofessionalism, too busy, the listing is no longer available, the buyer doesn't sound viable, etc. We discuss them all.

The only time to get an exact and accurate inventory count, and valuation, is at the time the business is being transferred. To do so beforehand, would mean that any merchandise sold after inventory is taken, but before close of escrow - Peter Siegel, MBA with BizBen & others discuss this topic.

Business buyers, brokers, owner/sellers all ask this question at some point. So I decided to ask some of the top Intermediaries in the California marketplace what they thought of the idea. Most of the ProIntermediaries on BizBen agreed with me on taking early possession before the close of escrow.

Small business sales happen in good times and bad, but even good economies affect the way in which they sell. But the truth is that not every small to mid-sized business sells and not every marketplace is good. I explore these concepts and other factors that affect a sale in this BizBen Discussion.

The restaurant business is a tough business to be in, no one can dispute that, and so it's imperative that an owner's equipment is in good working condition. A new owner should make sure that the restaurant's equipment is in good working order before they close escrow. We discuss this topic.

Posting business for sale listings on social media websites has become an increasingly popular, yet unproductive trend amongst business brokers. When posting your listings online, consider your audience and where potential business buyers and business owner/sellers spend their time online.

As a business broker, branding yourself with consistent and ongoing content is critical to your long-term success. Branding yourself protects you from outside factors that may affect your company's brand in the future and allows you to continue making progress if your company's circumstances change.

Business tax filings are very important factor in determining the credibility of business financials. Just seeing those financials, you can't determine whether those values are overstated or not. Some business owners provide made up financials to buyers - so, that's where tax fillings come in.

Sometimes business brokers just can't win with their clients, because if an offer comes in too fast & too early then they must have lowballed the price & the seller is suspicious, and if not enough offers come in after putting the business on the market - they may look unproductive to their clients.
