So, you want to buy a business valued at around $1,000,000 but you only have about half that. How do you get the deal done? The answer is with seller financing. But why would a seller in effect lend you money to buy his or her business? This question is answered by Vested Business Brokers owner and CEO, Nathan Goldstein in the video below…
Buying a business with seller financing is not uncommon when referring to the sale of “small” business (those valued at around $1,000,000 or less).
Folks, listen to what I’m saying. The owner of the business, who doesn’t know you, but you have the down payment to buy his business, is going to lend you the money so you can complete the transaction. This is a great thing, because he also wants to get paid, right? It’s like having a build-in consultant in your deal. If you get jammed up, you don’t understand the vendor, you can’t collect with a client, you can always pick up the phone. He has a vested interest, and that’s not a pun, in helping you be successful.
Many times, you’ve seen on my videos that we have a buyer who bought a business and he talked so highly of this seller who helped him grow his business. It’s a great thing. If the representations of the seller are not right, you can always adjust the price. We’re in a fluid market, which means it’s what the buyer wants to pay for that underlying opportunity, and it’s an open market.
Don’t hesitate to throw bids out there that are a little bit below the upper market to get the deals done. You never know the situation of the seller. He might have already checked out, he might have bought the house in Florida, he wants to go play golf but he’s stuck going to work every single day, and you, you’re stuck at home and you want to get out there and go to work. This guy has location, a staff, a great lease, a great company. He just doesn’t want to be there anymore. That’s the perfect business.
