Buying a business – making an offer?

We recently posted the 8 questions to ask when buying a business, now we highlight each question in a little more detail.

Making an offer

Assuming everything is good so far and you want to buy the business, it’s time to make an offer and start negotiating. Typically you’ll go through an offer/counter-offer session and hopefully both parties will meet somewhere in the middle.

Most likely it will be required that you are asked to secure your offer with a non-refundable deposit; it’s the only way to ensure you’re serious about the deal.  Do your best to remove all emotions and be prepared to walk away if the price is more than you’re willing to pay.
