Seller Financing

When contemplating the sale of a business, an important consideration is how much of the purchase price you would be willing to finance for a qualified buyer. The reason is simple: "all cash" buyers for businesses are rare and, in most cases, it does not make economic sense for a buyer.

While sellers interpret financing as risk, statistics do show that sellers receive a significantly higher purchase price if they decide to offer some form of financing on the sale of their business. With reasonable terms, the chances of selling increases and the time period to sell decreases. Seller financing communicates to the buyer that you are confident in the ability of the business to retire its own debt and in simple terms, "pay for itself".

Seller financing offers may advantages that, when carefully considered, may outweigh the perceived satisfaction of waiting for an all cash transaction.
  • Seller financing greatly increases the changes that a business will sell.

  • Seller financing commands a higher selling price.

  • Interest on the seller financed portion of the transaction can significantly add to the total proceeds received for the sale.

  • Interest rates on seller notes are higher than money market or CD rank rates.

  • Positive tax consequences compared to an all cash sale (check with your tax professional).
Whether you are financing the majority of the debt or just a portion of the down payment needed for the buyer to qualify for bank financing, there are many ways to structure a Seller Financed transaction. VR Intermediaries are skilled in transaction financing and provide Value Representation throughout the entire sale of your business.
