“When I decided to sell my business I was dreading the task of pulling everything together in order to advertise.

I connected with Morgan at DealBuilder and within one phone meeting we had completed a draft of the CIM template. I was then able to take some time to edit what we’d written and add important details to encourage a sale.

Morgan was pleasant and easy to work with. He was also readily available to answer any questions and provide support, as needed, throughout the process.

Within one month of listing I had connected with a prospective buyer and 3 months later I had wrapped up the sale.

I am extremely grateful to DealBuilder for making this much easier than I anticipated.

“I am very happy with my experience selling my business on the DealBuilder platform. I received a large volume of buyer inquiries immediately and received my first offer within 12 days.

When I first planned on selling my business, I thought I could do it without any support. But now that I have gone through the process - I was relieved to have the DealBuilder team there to support me along the way. They certainly added value!

“The long and the short of it is this: after our initial contact with the DealBuilder team, our business was sold for our asking price in less than 4 months.

The process was smooth - largely due to DealBuilder's knowledge of how small enterprises work. While we simply provided a description of our business, DealBuilder got the word out to bona fide prospects. We received inquiries from many parties, one of which gave us a Letter of Intent (LOI) and a deposit.

Not only was the process smooth, but the approach taken by DealBuilder was also highly professional and fluid. And, relative to the sale price, their fee was small. Whether you own the space or lease, for any business looking to sell, we would highly recommend DealBuilder.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it cost money to buy a business on the DealBuilder platform? Who pays your fees?

There is no cost to purchase a business on the DealBuilder platform and all fees are paid by the Seller. Buyers are responsible for their own legal and accounting fees.

Why do I need to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA)?

NDAs are used to protect the privacy of not only the business owner, but also their clients and customers.

Can I get financing to purchase a business? How does it work?

Yes, transactional financing is available for many businesses. The amount of financing available depends on many factors including but not limited to your business experience, the size of the business you want to buy, its industry, and how profitable it is.

Financing a business acquisition is very different in Canada compared to the USA. In Canada, you may need 25% to 100% of the purchase price available as a down payment. Whereas in the USA you may need as little as 10% of the purchase price available as a down payment.

Still a bit confused? Don’t worry, our team of experienced Deal Managers are able to assist you in identifying the appropriate lender depending on the unique characteristics of the deal.

What are good businesses to buy?

The answer = it depends! Do you have experience operating restaurants? Well, it may make sense for you to purchase a restaurant.

Our piece of advice - find a business you can imagine yourself working in everyday. If you can’t see yourself enjoying the work, it can be tough to find success.

How long does it take to purchase a business?

The longest part of the journey is finding a business that fits your criteria. Once that is done (and you have an accepted offer) the process can take 4-8 weeks for smaller deals. Larger more complex deals can take up to 12-16 weeks.
