Baby Boomers Buying Businesses

Baby Boomers Dilemma-Buying a Business at your Age?

 

As a card carrying member of the Boomer generation and a South Florida Business Broker  I hear the stories of why business owners are selling their Florida businesses. Perhaps even more interesting is why so many Boomers are interested in Buying a Florida Business at this stage of their life.

Search Florida Businesses for Sale

This is because many Baby Boomers in Florida are too young to retire, and are facing age discrimination in the corporate world.  What is a better way to use your years of experience in the corporate world than to leverage your strengths  and buy a business in Florida?

 

An interesting tidbit is that those in the age group between 55-64 years of age form businesses at a higher rate than any other age group. Many people in this group have substantial retirement accounts but  realize that starting to use these funds too early makes retirement a tradeoff of trying to live life on a fixed and limited income.

Many people are realizing the cost of living in many places in the country does not enable a lifestyle that is conducive to quality of life that you have work so hard to achieve and why Florida has become a leading choice for those seeking a lifestyle change.

 

As a Boca Raton Business Broker I am primarily involved with South Florida businesses for sale which includes business listings in Palm Beach, Broward, and Dade Counties. However, my membership in the Business Brokers of Florida (BBF) gives me an opportunity to find businesses for sale throughout Florida.

 

Many people I have spoken with are not certain which type of business makes the most  sense for them which has prompted me to create a questionnaire to help narrow down the choices. If you have an interest in receiving a copy of this document send me an email
edwardsklar@southfloridaforme.com  and I will be pleased to send it to you.

 

 

 

 

 

Many of the businesses we have available offer owner financing but

 

here are the most popular funding solutions we use to provide funding:

  • 401(k) Business Financing (Rollovers for Business Start-ups)
  • SBA Loans
  • Unsecured credit
  • Portfolio Loans

 

 

Please think about how secure you will feel in buying a business with established cash flow where your expertise can bring it to another level. All of our clients receive an opportunity to work with our team of professionals for assistance in areas such as legal, accounting, marketing, sales, and business planning.

Zen & the Art of Selling your Business

June 1, 2017

Zen emphasizes rigorous self-control,, and the personal expression of  Doing Good in daily life, and Buddhism explains a purpose to life, it explains apparent injustice and inequality around the world, and it provides a code of practice or way of life that leads to true happiness.

 

A South Florida Business Broker has created a Zen Concierge Model to Selling your Business that provides a No Stress approach to the owner, and No Fees until your Business is Sold. Selling your Business

 

Confidentiality is a key component to our approach and your employees, customers, and suppliers are not alerted to the fact that your business is for sale. A binding Non Disclosure Agreement is signed by every prospect prior to receiving any information about your business.

 

The Concierge approach entails providing a custom Business Plan to reflect the potential value for your business. The Business Plan becomes the “Secret Sauce” to maximizing the value of your business, and clearly differentiates South Florida for Me Business Brokers in this space.

 

Our extensive database of buyers include Private Equity firms, Corporations, and Qualified Individuals who are looking for niche businesses whose potential has been limited by lack of capital, sales, or marketing resources. We currently have a strong demand for businesses with revenue between $500,000-$3,000,000.

 

Our Social Media Network is expansive, and Edward Sklar is one of the most socially connected Business Brokers in South Florida, with literally hundreds of thousands of professional connections across the country.

 

Also, Edward is a REALTOR, and used his Real Estate connections as a Referral Database

Financing a Business Acquisition in Florida

April 8, 2017

The Florida Business Brokers  team are members of the Business Brokers of Florida, and provide a concierge approach to helping buyers evaluate the appropriate business to meet their requirements. 

One of the questions we hear most often is how can I finance the business I am interested in?

We have compiled a list of resources for you to begin exploring, and have several lenders available who have been successful in obtaining loans for viable businesses.

One of more popular loans is those guaranteed by the SBA. Please follow this link to view a quick video showing the highlights of this program.

https://www.sba.gov/videos/sba-loans-explained

The State of Florida offers many types of financing:

Florida Development Finance Corporation (FDFC)
State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI)
Enterprise Florida, Inc.’s (EFI) Minority & Small Business, Entrepreneurship and Capital (MaSBEC) division partners with outside organizations to provide small, minority and entrepreneurial companies with training, development and financing options. EFI has an extensive network of state, federal and non-profit resources ready to assist small businesses in accessing capital, entering new markets, and creating revenue growth and job creation.
Capital Programs
EFI facilitates the following capital programs that match qualifying small businesses with lenders that can provide financial assistance and lines of credit:
Small Business Loan Support Program
EFI’s State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI) and Microfinance Guarantee programs are designed to assist small businesses in obtaining loan approvals and leverage private capital for use in startup costs, working capital, business procurement, franchise fees, equipment, inventory, or the purchase of owner‐occupied commercial real estate. The program provides a lender with the necessary security, in the form of a partial guarantee, for the lender to approve a loan or line-of-credit.
Bond Financing
The EFI‐managed Florida Development Finance Corporation (FDFC) was created to be a conduit issuer (not direct issuer) of industrial revenue bonds (IRBs) for small manufacturers and 501(c)3 organizations. The advantage of IRBs is the potential to provide borrowers significant interest and state tax savings. IRB proceeds may be used for capital expenditures only, such as the purchase of land, new long‐term equipment, and building construction/renovations.
Venture Capital Program
The EFI‐sponsored Florida Opportunity Fund provides venture capital for start-up and early-stage businesses. State Venture Capital Programs often take one of two forms: a state-run venture capital fund (which may include other private investors) that invests directly in businesses; or a fund of funds, which is a fund that invests in other venture capital funds that in turn invest in individual businesses. Many factors, particularly resources and available talent, inform a state’s decision on which form to choose.
Phase 0 Program
EFI’s SBIR/STTR Phase 0 Program helps Florida’s small businesses improve their chances of submitting a successful Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase 1 proposal for federal research and development funds. Eligible expenses include market research, technology consulting services, grant writing assistance, related travel and legal/accounting fees.
Minority Business Development
EFI has endeavored to support existing minority development efforts by partnering with established outside organizations to provide small, minority and entrepreneurial companies with training, development and financing options. EFI has an extensive network of state, federal and non-profit resources ready to assist small businesses in accessing capital, entering new markets, and creating revenue growth and job creation. Specifically, a Group of 6 or “G6” partners have been vital to a successful outreach and communication in this area. Our G6 partners include:
The Florida Advisory Council on Small and Minority Business Development
The Florida Association of Minority Business Enterprise Officials
The Florida Consortium of Black Business
The Hispanic Business Initiative Fund
