We have expertise in the sale of virtually every type of business, from small auto repair shops to large-scale product manufacturers, retailers and  distributors.

We assist you with every step of the process, from valuation, to confidential marketing, negotiations, contracts and close of escrow.

At Bay Area Business Brokers, we have one objective: to get you the maximum value for your business. We provide each of our owner-clients with a comprehensive Marketing Action Plan that is designed to sell the business for top market value. The plan includes:

  • An in-house or certified business appraisal
  • Pre-approval for SBA financing
  • Sales strategy, including price and terms
  • A Confidential Business Summary for buyer presentation
  • Advertising tailored to specific buyer markets
  • Qualifying all buyers before presenting the business
  • Coordination of all activities necessary for a successful contract closing

When you decide to sell your business, your first step is to call us for a free consultation. Our highly professional staff is your guarantee that you’ll get the best possible deal. We will also provide you with a well-researched business evaluation, addressing crucial areas of concern that must be dealt with when representing the opportunity to potential buyers.

The timing is right!  Facing an uncertain retirement landscape, medium-to-high net worth individuals are turning to business ownership as a way to take control of their financial future. This means more buyers – especially motivated buyers – looking to purchase a profitable company.  Secondly, bank financing has become more favorable–SBA changes have caused banks to start lending again on business acquisitions.  And lastly, the stock market has rebounded, indicating that buyer confidence is increasing.
