Q: How long does it take to complete a valuation on my business?

Our goal is to have the valuation completed in less than 24 hours once we receive all the requested information.  Sometimes the valuation process can take longer than 24 hours if additional industry research needs to be completed or the business has a valuation above $5MM +.  Our goal is to provide the most accurate valuation possible on your business.

Q: Why doesn’t Acquisitions Direct accept low priced listings?

We pride ourselves on providing our clients with a high-quality, custom sales process.  A substantial amount of work goes into the sales presentation and marketing plan to sell a business.  This type of service is typically not cost effective for businesses priced under $100,000, and our buyers are generally looking for businesses that will have annual profits higher than those that would fall under that threshold.

Q: Do you recommend using an escrow company?

An escrow company should be used for all transactions with the exception of those closings handled by the buyer’s lender. Using a third party to handle escrowing buyer funds and conducting the close protects both buyer and seller. When using an escrow company the seller knows they will receive funds upon transferring the business over to the buyer and the buyer knows upon the transfer of funds they will receive ownership to the business they are purchasing.
