Buying a Business can be a difficult experience.
Sinclair Business Brokers can assist the Buyer and can guide and educate during this process.
The Buying process can take a couple of months and as long as a year.
We have helped hundreds of people buy businesses and we can answer all of your questions.
An interview between the Buyer and Sinclair Business Brokers is set up to establish the criteria and determine the
Buyer’s financial, technical and business abilities. A confidential buyer questionnaire is completed.
When business names and confidential info is to be shared a “Confidentiality Disclosure” form and a buyer personal
financial statement is submitted. When selecting a business broker, find one you like and trust.
Make sure they are licensed, which is mandatory in the State of Florida. Check out their website and experience.
Ask for references. Build a relationship with just one associate in our office. He/She can show you everything for sale.
Following the Buyer’s research of the industry that interests him/her, a target company is selected, and a meeting
is set up with the Seller at the Seller’s facility. We will work with the Buyer to obtain enough initial info so that
we can develop an offer for the Business that we will incorporate into an asset purchase contract.
This will address the price for the Business, proposed down payment, non-compete, training, assets that are included
in the sale, allocation of the purchase price, lease contingencies, due diligence period, and the closing agent.
Sinclair Business Brokers, works with the parties to insure a smooth transition and will handle all the details
necessary to close the deal.
