Interesting, this corresponds with an approximately 30% in the number of enquiries business owners were receiving when selling their businesses.
This fundamental shift in supply and demand means, as a buyer, standing out from the crowd has never been more important.
If you’re looking to buy a business, simply joining a waiting list (such as ours here) is a good start, but it probably isn’t enough.
Instead, taking a proactive step to let business owners contact you, will allow you to uncover many more opportunities.
In 2018 it was taking around 18 months for the average buyer to find and purchase a business. And that was before the shift in supply and demand of businesses for sale.
Our Business Wanted listing, puts your ad in front of business owners who are considering selling their business, often before the business is even listed for sale.
This puts you in the box seat to negotiate a deal without competition from other buyers.
When a business owner is thinking of selling their business, often the first thing they’ll do is check out what our similar businesses are selling for one of the major business for sale websites.
Our business wanted ads are posted directly to all our partner sites where business owners are looking to compare their businesses.
A well written ad will encourage potential sellers to contact you before advertising their business to other buyers.
