The Key Benefits of Using a Business Broker
by Jim Brown

Selling a business is usually a very intimidating and
time-consuming process. There may be legal, tax,
accounting, and regulatory issues to address. Business
brokers and agents deal with these issues and negotiate
business deals on a daily basis. They are professionals
with a fiduciary duty to you, and they are authorized to
act on your behalf in coordinating the transaction.

Experience and Skillful Negotiators

For many people, selling a business is not an event that
occurs often. A competent business broker has spent several
years developing an understanding of the current market and
acquisition process, and he or she can assist you in
pricing and marketing your business. A broker has access
to recent sales histories on similar companies which help
to determine an unbiased and accurate assessment of your
business. Furthermore, a broker handles the technical
aspects of the sale such as structuring the transaction and
liaising with other professionals that help in the selling


The reputation of the broker affects how the market
perceives your company. A reputable broker takes the time
to understand your business and work on a strategy to
market it to potential buyers. He or she has the resources
to compile selling documents and display them in a
professional manner not only to buyers but also to their
accountants, bankers, and attorneys who help in assessing
the business.


Most business owners want to keep their anonymity when
selling their business. In the role of an intermediary,
the broker serves as a buffer between you and prospective
buyers. This decreases the chances of a leak of
confidential information to employees, customers,
suppliers, and competitors, which could negatively impact
your business.
