Selling a Business on

This process is detailed and takes about 10 to 20 minutes. However, it is comprehensive and works well at maintaining confidentiality of the business while at the same time providing enough information to produce interest with potential buyers.

You must follow all instructions. It is a good idea to take your time and carefully read them. They are strictly enforced and those listings which do not comply with the instructions of answering all required questions/fields as they are supposed/intended to be provided will not be posted and will be deleted.

There are 3 sections to this form:

  1. Contact Information.
    This information is required on ALL listing ads. It is VERY important to understand that listing ad options #1 (For Sale By Owner) and #3 (for Business Brokers) are the options of listing ad types in which your contact information will be displayed.

  2. Listing Information
    As you will see, some of these questions are required to complete. However, you will notice that you have the option of making them available on the listing or not. Be aware that there tends to be a better response rate for those listing ads where the owner (or broker) has been more thorough and comprehensive than from those whose owners have displayed their unwillingness to provide information which typically creates more interest. Again, all requirements and instructions must be followed.

  3. Financial Information
    The required fields (*) are just that... required. Submitting a listing ad for a business without providing answers to the required questions will result in being deleted and not posted on the site.
