Want to acquire a business

Is it possible to acquire a profitable business via owner financing on a "pay as you go" type of arrangement? I have no money to buy a business outright and would like to get out of the corporate world and work for myself by growing a successful business.

Owner financing is still a loan and if you default, they will take action similar to what a bank would do. Also sellers still require a down payment and collateral. If you have any type of retirement funds, (401K or IRA), you can roll those over into your company and use the money for a down payment tax and interest free.

The answer is "yes." But there's a catch. You need to know what you're doing and come up with the down payment as well as have a buffer fund.

Marie, I'm afraid Don is correct. If you don't have enough money for a substantial downpayment + capital for emergencies, please don't do it. There are a few companies that offer owner financing, but, keep in mind they are going to want to get their payment first. This could leave you in a situation where you are locked into paying someone for years, with nothing to live on for yourself.

Perhaps one of the worst things you can do is to enter into a business undercapitalized. Please be careful of people trying to entice you into a situation where you enter too deeply in debt, from the very beginning. It is simply not worth the risk.
