Do Your Homework Before Applying for SBA Loans

Preparing Yourself  To Apply For An SBA Business Loan

In today’s economic environment, there’s a smart way to obtain a small-business loan according to a recent article in the Los Angeles Times.

Preparation is one thing that is essential in obtaining loan approval. You need to be able to explain and justify every area of the business you are buying. You can’t simply present projections for the next five years and talk about construction and renovation. In many cases, you will need additional data and may have to revise your application.

SBA lenders will actively look for small businesses that are aggressive in obtain a strong profit margin while keeping overhead low. They will also look at character, where you will not only be able but willing to write a check to cover a loan if it goes bad.

SBA Financing To Purchase A Business

SBA financing offers buyers attractive loan terms and interest rates while eliminating, or reducing, the need for the seller to carry a note. This means a lower down payment and lower debt service for the buyer, which translates into more net income for the buyer. Both of these factors make SBA financing attractive.

Financing the Purchase of a Business: The deal has to make dollars and sense

The most important factor a buyer must consider in the purchase of a business is cash flow. Financing substantially increases a buyer’s cash flow while lowering their up front investment. Thus, financing is a critical factor in a successful transaction.

Business Sales vs. Selling Real Estate – Which is more profitable in this economy?

Are you involved in Real Estate Sales or are you a Real Estate Broker?
You Should Consider The Advantages Of Selling Businesses and Mergers & Acquisitions through VR Business Sales.

Before Buying a Franchise to be an m&a advisor or becoming a broker to sell real estate, there are several factors to consider in this economy.

Privately-held businesses drive the United States economy. There are over 25 million privately-held businesses alone in United States, which make up over 52% of the United States GDP and 50% of the domestic workforce. The same holds true around the world as privately-held businesses are the economic engine of most countries. With these figures, it only makes sense as a real estate broker to take advantage and start engaging in business sales.

At VR Business Sales, you have the ability to grab hold of a market that’s continually growing, while the real estate industry is continuing to bottom out. As a VR Business Sales intermediary, you will capitalize in an industry that’s full of lucrative opportunities.

Average Commission

Every VR Business Sales intermediary receives, on average, a 10% commission per sale, while the rate for real estate brokers falls around 6% – according to the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

Average Sales Price

The average sales price per business at VR Business Sales is $470.000, while most homes run lower around $200,000.

Average Sales Cycle

You will find at VR Business Sales that 5 to 8 months is the average sales cycle for an engagement, while Realtors see a house sell in 12 to 15 months.

Average Splits

The average split at VR Business Sales is 50/50, while NAR office owners see the short end of a split closer to 90/10.

Minimum Commissions

At VR Business Sales, every office receives a minimum commission on a deal, ranging anywhere from $10,000 to $25,000. Generally, real estate brokers do not receive a minimum commission, as it depends on the stipulations of the sale.

Earning Potential (Top of Price Range)

Any VR business intermediary has the potential of selling listings up to $160 million in value, whereas real estate brokers have only a limited roof of what they can achieve financially.

Average Office Sales

Taking into account every M&A office surveyed in the business brokerage industry, the average sales per office computes at over $1 million, while real estate brokers in NAR have seen their office sales plummet to below $500,000 annually.

Average Annual Earnings

Business sales intermediaries average $179,000 annually in earnings, while real estate brokers earn a fraction of that amount at a little under $48,000.

Inventory Turnover

The success rate at VR Business Sales is quite high, with 1 out of 2 businesses closing. Real estate brokers have a substantially lower inventory turnover rate with 1 out of every 14 real estate listings closing.

Market Potential

Economist Robert Avery from Cornell University estimates that $10 trillion of assets and over 12 million privately-held companies will be transferred as Baby Boomers start to retire. Other estimates predict that 10,000 Baby Boomers will become eligible for Social Security every day with 80 million retiring over the next two decades. This only makes VR Business Sales a more logical and profitable opportunity over selling real estate.

Most real estate brokers don’t realize the full potential of facilitating the sale of a business. Especially with the current real estate crisis here in the United States, why struggle when you can seize the advantages at VR Business Sales?

CAPITALIZE ON THE VR BUSINESS SALES OPPORTUNITY

Investigate your marketplace. Are there privately-held business owners receiving professional representation when trying to sell their business? If not, do you believe that as a franchisee in the VR Business Sales organization you can offer Valued Representation to business owners, and pride yourself at becoming the premier firm in your market

If you see the need to help those business owners, and develop a career in business you can be proud of, learn more about how you can fulfill your professional and financial goals at VR Business Sales today!

It has failed miserably and proven to be so inept at job creation that our unemployment, as President Obama himself said, ‘blew past’ his own administration’s projection of 8%. Now it’s time for people who know how to create jobs and prosperity, know what it means to stick to a budget and make payroll – the business leaders of this country – to come together and clean up this mess,” Gingrich said.

In 1999,  Mr. King saw an opportunity that would bring the professionalism and service of investment banking to the small and mid-size business owner: acquiring VR Business Sales / Mergers & Acquisitions. Today Peter King and his partner and President, JoAnn Lombardi, lead VR Business Sales / Mergers & Acquisitions as the only full-time global network of Professional Business Intermediaries.
