  • What is my business worth?
  • What kind of financials do I need to provide when I sell my business?
  • How do I ensure confidentiality?
  • What is the most effective way to find buyers?
  • What kind of financing is available to help me sell my business?
  • How do I deal with “off the books” transactions?
  • How do I screen buyers?
  • Will I have to carry a note when I sell my business?

Selling a business is an intricate process that requires very particular expertise and the ability to solve problems in a practical yet creative manner. However, we realize that all businesses are unique and that applying a “cookie-cutter” approach will not be the most effective method. That’s why we tailor our methodology to your individual needs and concerns.

Our intent is always to keep you informed and involved in the sale of your business. We know you want the freedom to concentrate on your business while finding you the right buyer.

Sunbelt’s North Alabama business brokers are experts at confidentially marketing your business to find a buyer that’s the best match to maximize value.
