Buy Your Business

The vast majority of all business buyers are first time buyers, unprepared to meet the complexities of a business acquisition. However, whether you are considering your first acquisition or are a seasoned investor, you can look to us for assistance in every phase of the transaction. The following, therefore, summarizes the key elements of the business acquisition process as professionally conducted by us.

Initial Meeting -
Objectives, Needs and Requirements Review:

In preparation for this initial meeting with us, the business buyer should complete our Buyer Response Form. By completing the form, you will send an email to us with the information provided or you can print the confirmation page and fax it to us. This, along with subsequent discussion relating to your personal goals and objectives, will provide an adequate starting point to begin a detailed search of our large listing inventory in order to develop a selection of "target" businesses for your review.

Review of Acquisition Alternatives:

This is where our professional edge can really make a difference in a successful acquisition. We will make every effort to provide you with pertinent information on a target company's financial performance, staffing, facilities, equipment, lease, inventory, customers and market areas served. In most cases we will have tax returns, customer lists, etc. for confirmation. Where we cannot provide verification of information given to us, we will advise you accordingly.

When the various business names are disclosed, you will be required to sign a standard "Confidentiality/Disclosure" form which, in most cases, is required by the business owner.

For more information please visit our "Buying A Business" page.

Sell Your Business

Your business isn't just any business. It is a living monument to late-night homework and early-morning deadlines. An accumulation of sweat, equity and lifetime achievement.

The decision to sell your business can be the most important decision of your life. Turning your operation into cash is a complex affair involving hundreds of variables. You face an uncertain economy, unbridled competition, sophisticated buyers and, without professional guidance, you face them alone.

Business sales intermediaries have professionally orchestrated hundreds of business sales transactions.

With our worldwide affiliation, our members business offerings are regularly presented to numerous potential domestic and international buyers looking to relocate to our area.

Consider the Facts:

One out of four American businesses change hands each year.

The vast majority of all business sellers are first-time sellers, unprepared to meet the complexities and time demands of a business sale transaction.

"Do-it-yourself" sellers typically receive considerably less than the fair market value of their businesses.

Over 50% of all small-to-medium sized business sales arranged by sellers without professional help result in transactional problems, dissatisfaction or default.

Today's business buyer demands reliable financial and operational information that can be confirmed.

Realtec Business Brokers specializes in business sales and acquisitions of firms ranging in price from $10,000 to over $10,000,000. As we have sold about every category of business, we invite your review of our  high level of ethics and performance by contacting them for clients we have served.

We are selective and are highly successful. We have policies of representing those clients who have a desire to see the continuing success of their business under the guardianship of a new owner.

Fee Basis and Policies:

For the most part,  fees are earned on a success basis. This is to say, if we are successful in selling your business, then you normally will not pay our fees until closing. If not, then you will know in advance what the costs will be.
