What are the qualification a broker needs to conduct business? The qualification a Broker requires is a Real Estate Salespersons Certificate. BUT this does not make a good broker.
Most good brokers have done the Australian Institute of Business Brokers CPBB – Certified Practicing Business Brokers Course. They must have a comprehension and understanding of Business Financials, Law, Leases, Finance, HR, Franchises and Sales.
If there are any gaps in any of these areas, they will struggle to get results.
How long have you been in the business broker industry? 12 Years and counting and have assessed over 3,000 businesses and been involved in the sale of over 1,100 businesses.
On average, how long does it take to sell a business? Providing the sellers expectations are realistic, marketing is appropriate and sufficient most results can come within 12 months. The more realistic the seller the quicker the sale.
What are some important factors that potential buyers take into account when searching for a business? Return on their Investment, Location and security of lease, Ability to run the business, Future of the Business and industry.
What is your advice regarding how an owner should value their business? Experienced Brokers are usually better judges of business values, because they are involved with the market daily.
The best valuation method is Benchmarking (Direct Sales Comparison) of like businesses. Note the Net profit is important but not the only factor.
Security of Location, Competition, skills required are some of the critical factors that determine the true value of a business.
Have you noticed certain industries which have become more popular in recent times? Yes – Hospitality, hence why we specialise
What are the average fees for a small business owner to sell with a broker? Most can expect between 8% to 10%. They vary between Brokerages – Better brokers tend to charge more but get the sellers better results and ultimately more in their hand.
Some less experienced Agents charge just a few percent and unfortunately, sellers often get what they pay for.
Once the seller accepts an offer, what happens then? There is usually a myriad of Special Conditions that need to be met once a contract has been signed.
A good broker, is one that stays on top of all of these to ensure that everything happens in a timely manner.
Contracts often fall over when a condition has not been satisfied and the broker, solicitor, buyer or seller has not managed it properly, a good broker watches these conditions closely, it’s their job and what they get paid for. Don’t expect a solicitor to do this, they get paid anyway.
What are some quick tips a business owner can do prior to putting it on the market? Put everything through the books, what we can’t see we can’t sell, Keep GOOD verifiable financial records, Make sure you have a good lease in place. More profit equals better sale price, not potential, every business has potential.
