Joppa, MD - In the current economy, with banks very much restricting their willingness to provide your potential business buyer with financing, here are some “time-tested” strategies to successfully assist a buyer in the sale of a business:

First, ask the buyer to take a look at all of his personal resources. What funds does he have available in bank, brokerage and other liquid accounts?

If the buyer owns a residential or a commercial property, have him process a request for a “cash out” refinance with his bank or with a mortgage banker or broker.

If the buyer has a 401(k) plan, these accounts typically have a loan withdrawal option. Have the buyer check with his plan administrator for eligibility and loan guidelines and restrictions.

Capital contributions from the buyer’s family members, friends, partners or relatives can help significantly with any business purchase.

Depending upon the resources that are available to your buyer from the previous sources, consider offering the buyer some “seller-held” financing.


"Remember that any business worth selling can be “financed” with a little bit of creativity and imagination", says Paul Hauf, Owner of Paul G Hauf and Associates.
