Hello Mr. Wilt,
One should seriously consider using the the trade marked "Business Asset" feature In this system the Business Fundability. Why? Because it specifically designed to be successfully transferred at the time you sell your business, from the buyer to the seller. If you follow this step by step, highly intuitive, systematic, continually optomizing system, your debt, loans, lines of credit, merchant credit, esentially your companies value will be worth "houndreds of thousands of dollars" more than if you didn't build business credit at all. Suprisingly, your will find that you will instantly prequalify for loans that don't need business credit, financial or income documentation, are unsecured, and can be used for any purpose. One can cash out an unsecured line of credit for example and pay oneself a salary, deposited in the bank, reinvested in the companies stock, or used to qualify and leveraged to attain an additional loan. If one sets these loans up prior to the sale of the business but uses very little of the available credit line or invests the loan into the business your buyer can benefit from your loans with out having to apply for the loans himself, it comes with the business. How valuable would your business be if it had a 200,000 no documentation unsecured line of credit loan available day one of ownership? Especially if it could be used for any purpose. If your build business credit, your can attain a loan that will be tied to your business and can be transferred to the buyer, and the buyer can use it to finance the purchase of your business. That is one reason why you want to build you business asset. If your buyer can get financing along with the business, that business is going to be more valuable to the buyer. There is one loan that your buyer can attain if your business has good cash flow, and revenue for the last two years. That is the $300,000 3 year term loan, avaiable for a purchase of a business, not based on the buyers finances or documentation but those of the business to be sold. Essentially your bushiness again can be highly valued and way more borrowers could qualify, many who otherwise could never foreseeable qualify. You could have liquid cash up to half a million dollars and your wouldn't have to do any seller financing if your borrower couldn't normally qualify with out it.
This sit has ample free information on how to strategically sell your business. But cash is King. If you can bring this much cash to the transaction your going to be in a much more lucrative position.
Email with any question you might have about this approach. Linked bellow is your free membership into the Business Fundability system which has everything I written about here,
Good Luck,
Wes Graham

That would depend on the size of the business, the kind of the business, how much profit it is generating and a lot of other issues. It is impossible to give you any kind of specific information with that kind of general question. Under the circumstances my suggestion is that you would contact a reputable broker, in your area.
