LOOKING TO PURCHASE A BUSINESS on a "Contract-for-Deed" basis.

Are there any Sellers who do "contract-for-deed", I am looking to put down about $5,000.00 or so on a small business that has profit of $250,000.00 - maybe $500,000.00 a Year. I would make monthly payments for a Year, and re-finance to pay off remaining balance. It does not need to be a Year, it can be six months...

If you are selling a business, and willing to work with what I say above, email me: PLMQAZ22@YAHOO.COM thanks Nik

I am open to what the business may be?

How to Buy a Business


The only way such a deal could be made sweeter is if the owner also paid you to take the business off his hands. Seriously, you should take a look at that Inc article which shows what cash flows are currently selling for. They are most definitely not free.

I absolutely agree with Don. There is no way any business that makes that kind of profit would take a $5,000 down payment and agree to finance the rest. This type of business would require a large downpayment for the owner to take you seriously. You need to be realistic. For the type of money you looking to put down and pay off within a year, you are talking about a purchase price under $50K and it won't include storefront property. To give you an idea as to what I'm talking about, I have a small web business available for $39K, that has 'intellectual property'. But, it will not make anywhere near the $250K profit you are interested in. Best of luck to you.

Your terminology is faulty, since there is no "deed" for businesses, unless there is property. An installment payment system or an Owner financing deal is probably what you want.

But that much money for that much profit? You might find someone, but I doubt it. There is too much risk for them and nothing to really gain. Unless you were my brother, or I knew I had only weeks to live, if it were my business, I would not do it.
