Our Edge: A large number of brokers at Indiana Business Advisors are former business owners or executives. They understand the concerns expressed by business owners in regard to the sale of their businesses. We provide you with practical answers to the basic questions all sellers ask:

  • 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 qualified 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?

Our Method: Our team is trained in the specific business brokerage disciplines that produce results. Consultation on a variety of business issues is available at your request as your selling process evolves. Selling a business is an intricate process that requires a very specific expertise as well as the ability to solve problems in a practical yet creative manner. We do realize, however, that all businesses are unique and that applying a “cookie-cutter” approach will not be the most effective method. We always try to tailor our marketing and procedures to accommodate the needs of your business and your 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 we find you the right buyer.
