Business Ownership

Business ownership in today’s market can be stressful. The experts at Emerald Coast Business Brokers can help you manage the buying and selling process.

Own your own business along Florida’s Emerald Coast

What better place to take on the adventure of business ownership than in one of the beautiful coastal towns along Florida’s Emerald Coast? The area has so much to offer! And if that is the direction you are interested in going, there are some great questions to ask before you start your search:

  • How do I find a quality business that matches my requirements?
    Of course, before you can answer this question, it’s important to first identify your requirements. Where do your interests lie? What type of business would make you want to get out of bed in the morning? Do you have an expertise? What type of atmosphere do you prefer? You may already have a business in mind, but if you need assistance determining your requirements, a business broker can help. And once you know the type of business you’re looking for, a Business Broker will help you find a business that matches your requirements through their database of business listings.
  • What is that business really worth, and how much financial information can I get from the owner?

If you’re serious about buying the business, part of the Due Diligence process includes access to all financial information – this, of course, is to help ensure you are making a sound financial decision. And this is another place where a qualified business broker is ideal.

  • What strategy should I use when making an offer?
    Naturally you will want to buy a business at the relatively lowest cost to you, which requires strategy, good planning, knowing your local market, and knowing how to trade intelligently. Your business broker will help you identify the best strategy.
  • Do I need an accountant or an attorney involved in the purchase?
    In almost every case, yes. A prospective business owner will work with a team that consists of attorneys, bankers, CPAs and insurance companies to complete the business transaction. Your business broker will guide this team.
