I'm looking to buy a business, but am looking in multiple cities. What's the best way to do this? Thx.

I'm looking in 4 general markets: Philadelphia, Chicago, Washington DC, and Madison / Milwaukee WI. Do I have to work with a single broker in each city? Can I work with multiple brokers? From an industry perspective, I'm open to just about anything other than restaurants / bars. I have $500-$750K to invest before leverage or any add'l $$ raised. Any ideas / advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Don't just limit yourself to brokers. Smart business owners don't use them. Do some internet searches as well.

If, you want to do online business, then you don't have to go in different cities. You can just sit at one place and can cover as many cities as you want and if you don't want to buy an online business then you can take the help of internet and search for the feed in which you are interested.

As a Broker, I can tell you that working with individual Brokers might not be your best bet. Unlike Residential Real Estate Agents, Business Brokers frequently do not share their commissions with other Brokers. Frankly, this is a stupid and archaic practice, hurting both Buyers and - even more so - the Sellers they supposedly represent. Because of this, using a Broker to represent you in buying a business will often result in you paying that person for their services, in addition to the cost of the business purchase, itself.

Therefore, for small business, you should peruse listing services such as BizBuySell and determine what kinds of businesses you might want to purchase, then call the Listing Broker, directly. Remember that the Listing Broker DOES NOT REPRESENT YOU, nor is he/she LOOKING OUT FOR YOUR BEST INTERESTS, no matter how friendly they appear to be!

If you want to talk about this in more detail, give me a call (Don Barrick at 410-715-0700). No obligation or charge!
