Buying a Business

When You’re Buying a Business

There are definite benefits to buying an operating business, rather than attempting to build your own from the ground up. Marketing plans, lease agreements and other procedures and policies are already in place, along with seasoned employees and, most importantly, existing customers and cash flow.

Navigating the process of buying a business can be challenging and time-consuming. Although this is an exciting time, it is also a very emotional one for both buyer and seller. Many buyers are unfamiliar with the business transfer process and can easily become anxious about negotiations and feel stressed or overwhelmed with the many details involved.

A Murphy broker can help a business owner avoid the frustration and pitfalls that buyers frequently face. Most importantly, your Murphy broker will ensure that your information and the information concerning the seller and their business, as well as negotiations between both parties, will remain confidential throughout the process.

Buyers can expect the broker to help simplify and streamline the business transfer process, from start to finish, including:

  • Identifying criteria parameters
  • Locating solid opportunities
  • Arranging meetings and site visits
  • Handling negotiating and the offer to purchase
  • Obtaining the paperwork necessary to close
  • Managing the due diligence process
  • Being present at closing

Throughout the process, our brokers will always be available to answer your questions and manage the flow of information between parties.

Murphy brokers will also be able to refer you to other professional affiliates in your location who you may need to assist with your transaction. These professionals are familiar with the business transfer process (such as a lender for SBA financing, attorneys, and accountants) and are happy to help you reach your goals.
