6 obstacles to buying a business

No matter how experienced you are, six obstacles stand in the way of you buying a business:

  1. There is a horde of unemployed or inexperienced buyers; they bid against each other to create a seller’s market.
  2. Most businesses are not worth owning. Their owners hope for a naive buyer.
  3. Only 1 out of 5 of the best companies sold are advertised by sellers or offered through business brokers.
  4. Buyers who don’t buy the right business the right way are disappointed in their purchase.
  5. Being qualified to buy a business is not enough.
  6. Depending upon the industry and type of buy/sell transaction—where the seller and buyer reached agreement on everything else—up to 50% failed to close due to lack of acquisition financing, according to a national survey.
