Are you a business seller? You’re going to love this.
If you are a buyer, not so much.
Seller financing attracts buyers to companies for sale, which increases buyer competition.
Buyer competition can turn a buyer’s market into a sellers’ market, which can cause buyers to pay a higher price for the business and/or not get the best terms in the purchase and sale agreement.
This is why we like to find sellers who are not advertising “seller financing.”
We’ll suggest it later, during dealmaking.
