Start a Business Part 1 of 3 

In the last of this three part Series we are going to focus on buying an existing business.

Maybe you are at a time in your career right now where you are coming up to the new year and looking for a fresh start or perhaps you have been involved in a downsizing, been unemployed for sometime or simply have always had a dream to start a business. Whatever the reason there is some questions you should be asking yourself before starting the evaluation process.

  1. Do I look for a franchise with an existing system in place?
  2. Do I want to start my own business from scratch?
  3. Do I buy an existing business?

Buying an Existing Business – Pros

  • Funding – It can often be easier to obtain financing because the business already has an established track record.
  • Strategy Already in Place – Many of the problems that businesses run into have already occurred and have been resolved. The business will be more forgiving to the market than starting a new business.

Buying an Existing Business – Cons

  • Funding – You will likely need a significant amount of working capital to aid with cash flow. Generally, a large amount of cash is necessary to make the actual purchase.
  • Current Business Contracts – You may have to renegotiate or honor any contracts that are already in place with the current owner some of which had already been paid.
  • What lies beneath the Floor – Most business owner that is very profitable and successful usually don’t want to give that up. Look for the real reason the business is being sold.
