What is a Business Buyer Advocate?

A Business Buyer Advocate assists the Buyer through the business purchase process. Just as a Business Broker works exclusively for the Business Seller, the Business Buyer Advocate works exclusively for the Buyer.

Buying a business can be one of the biggest purchases in your life, and a Buyer Advocate can support you through that process to help you avoid any costly mistakes.

Why use a Business Buyer Advocate?

Buying a business can be complex and time consuming with many factors to consider such as financial, emotional and personal circumstances.

Then when you eventually find a business that you think is suitable, you will have to perform adequate due diligence to assess the viability or potential of the business. There may be problems with the business which are missed which can have a significant financial impact in the long term. The business could be overvalued resulting in overpaying for the business.
