Saves time and stress
Listing the business for sale to the public, CBB website and numerous MLS services.
Based on the law in several states, CBB provides the seller with a business condition disclosure form, and other forms which may be needed.
Preparing necessary papers describing the business for advertising, pamphlets, tours, etc.
Locally advertising the business. Advertising is often the biggest outside expense in listing a business and unlike many brokers CBB doesn’t require “up front fees”.
Being a contact person available to answer any questions about the business and to schedule showing appointments
Ensuring buyers are prescreened so that they are financially qualified to buy the business; the more highly financially qualified the buyer is, the more likely the closing will succeed.
Negotiating price on behalf of the sellers. The seller's agent acts as a fiduciary for the seller. By not being emotionally tied to the transaction, Business Brokers are in a position to more effectively negotiate on a Seller's behalf. This may involve preparing a standard offer to purchase contract by filling in the blanks in the contract form.
Negotiating facility lease assignment or transfer, negotiating with creditors, assisting Buyer in obtaining financing.
In some cases, holding an earnest payment in escrow from the buyer(s) until the closing. The closing is the meeting between the buyer and seller where the business ownership is transferred and the businesses name is conveyed.
This company operates mini electric trams that have been designed to look like old time steam trains. The company has three trains in operation. One is located in a shopping mall, and the other two are operating out of large shopping complexes. The business began operation in 2010 and has been delighting families ever since. The trains provide a nostalgic trip back in time for every rider. Each train consists of a replica of a steam engine locomotive, a coal car, two coaches and a caboose that will carry up to twenty four children. Adults can also hop on board to enjoy the ride, making this an adventure for the entire family. In addition to operating out of their home bases, the trains can be rented for birthday parties, festivals, fairs and special events providing additional incremental income to the owners. Since the trains are trackless, they only require a flat level surface of cement or blacktop to operate. The sale includes three 48 volt trackless trains (3 engines, 3 coal cars, 6 coaches, and 3 cabooses) as well as a Silverado Crew Cab and an enclosed cargo trailer used for transporting the trains to special events. This is a turnkey offering. The selling price includes the trains as well as the means to transport them. Since the current owners are employed elsewhere, an owner/operator has tremendous opportunities for additional revenue and income. New owners can concentrate on expanding the special events rentals while maintaining the base business. This is an exciting niche business that can be both fun and profitable.
