How to evaluate a business to buy?

 

 

When deciding to buy a business, buyers should consider the following:

• What types of industries are you interested in? Retail, manufacturing, professional services, etc.?

• What are your income objectives? $50,000, $100,000, etc.?

• How much liquid capital do you currently have available to buy the business and how much financing is available to you if needed?

• What is your lifestyle objective? Are you looking for a business that can be run by an absentee owner or one that you can run as an owner operator?

• Where would you like the business to be located?

The answers to these questions will help you narrow down the types of businesses so that you can focus on businesses that will be a better fit for you and your objectives.
