Absentee Businesses for Sale

Search BizQuest for the largest listing of absentee businesses for sale.

An absentee business is a great choice for the entrepreneur who wants to earn additional income without investing much time. The absentee business model is especially attractive because it allows people to acquire a business while continuing to work their own jobs. This removes some of the risk involved with starting a business because owners don't have to go through a start-up period without personal income. Some people want to invest with the intention that the absentee business will one day be their sole income, while others invest to have a second source of income. Retirees and people who travel often are also a great fit for an absentee business. Some of the most common absentee businesses are car washes, laundromats and gas stations. While an absentee business owner will need to hire trustworthy employees to handle day-to-day operations, the owner can still expect to take care of certain tasks like bookkeeping and managing the schedule and inventory.
If you can imagine relaxing on a beach, while your business is simultaneously earning money to pay for your trip, then you should definitely look into the acquisition of an absentee business for sale. BizQuest can help you say goodbye to the typical 9-to-5 job and start your search for an absentee business or franchise for sale today!

Marketing, Advertising & Business Location Services: Buyer: We have built our own proprietary software and utilize the latest technology to be able to locate any potential seller. If you are looking to purchase a specific business, we are able to put together a direct marketing campaign within days to weeks depending on the scope of the project. Seller: We will use our proprietary software and systems to market certain businesses to specific strategic buyers that would be likely to acquire a similar business. We will use the normal business for sale sites, we will send it to our global network of buyers, attorneys, affiliates and more. E2 Visas We have invested greatly in our systems and infrastructure to be able to handle the additional time and needs of both the buyer and seller in the E2 Visa process. It is mutually beneficial for both parties to be aware of the process and have a competent set of professionals to guide both parties through the process as quickly and as painless as possible. We have surrounded ourselves with some of the best necessary providers in this process - professionals who handle these deals on a daily basis to ensure success. The buyer gets a great business and the seller usually gets an all cash offer. Licensing, Applications, Business Plans… We have on staff someone that will guide you through all licensing questions, requirements and issues so that you are not left on your own. We can also refer you to a 3rd party to complete all licensing for you. We will also assist in preparing business plans, SBA paperwork and more. Negotiations and Contracts All negotiations will be conducted professionally and confidentially whether we are working with just the buyer, seller or both. Often times structuring a contract properly is the key to success - whether it is a straight asset purchase, if we need to work an earn-out, if a note is held we will make sure sellers are protected - or any other situation. All contracts, addendums and negotiations are part of our service to make sure both parties are equally protected and we can appoint a qualified transaction attorney to close the deal for a nominal fee. Business Evaluations An essential part of the transaction is the business evaluation. Whether you are a seller not wanting to under price the business or a buyer not wanting to over pay, we will be able to provide you with the proper multiples or opinion of value. We do not rely on simple multiples as there are far too many factors. We will complete a full blown evaluation that will factor everything from inventory, seller's duties, hours, trends, SDE and so much more. Confidential Business Review (CBR): An essential part of buying or selling a business lies in the confidential business review. Unfortunately, most brokers either do not know how to or just do not prepare a CBR. This is extremely important for both the buyer and seller. Many times what we receive is a paragraph, or a P&L/tax returns, or a partial CBR or sometimes nothing at all! Not everyone can read tax returns and a buyer wants to know about the business they want to purchase. Our CBR will be anywhere from 10, 20, 30+ pages depending on the size of the business. It will include: recasted financials pointing out (line by line) the true income of the seller, pictures of the business, duties, a breakdown of staff, general marketing and advertising, a SWOT analysis (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats), reviews, necessary information about the industry and so much more. These are questions that buyers ask, and information they want and need to purchase a business. We are not here to waste your time, having to ask/answer questions or hold unnecessary meetings. Cooperation with Other Brokers: For Buyers: You will not be limited to just our listings as we have access to usually around 4,000 active businesses at any time. You can see all of these businesses on our site. We are here to make sure that you find the right business for you, whether it is our listing or another broker's listing. One of the common misconceptions in the business brokerage business is that once you sign a confidentiality agreement with a broker, you must work with that broker. All situations are different, but if you do not feel that you are getting the service you deserve do not hesitate to make a change. For Sellers: We have a strong history of cooperating with other business brokers. If a business broker brings a qualified buyer we will do what is best for the seller and that is cooperate to get the business sold. We will not just give information to any agent, Realtor or broker so you can feel confident that the business will be protected. Confidentiality: Confidentiality is known to be important for sellers but it is also paramount for confidentiality to be kept for the buyers as well. Every buyer will go through a process which will consist of experience, financial viability, requirements and personal preference to make sure the proper businesses are chosen, financing is properly qualified and leases will not be an issue. We will not disclose every business just because someone asks. Summary: Our sole focus is on cash flowing businesses. We do not sell properties, we are not Realtors, we do not lease space…100% of our time is dedicated to you buying or selling a business. We achieve a high success rate by taking minimal listings and buyers and focusing on who we choose to work with rather than trying to sell anything we can. If you want to buy or sell a business, you want to call us!
