Searching for Calgary Businesses for Sale
There are many ways to find Calgary businesses for sale. Depending on what you’re looking for, you may want to try one or more of the following:
- Newspapers and trade magazines
- Business intermediaries such as business brokers or mergers and acquisitions professionals
- Calling or writing to owners in the industry you are targeting
- Hiring an intermediary (business broker)
You will probably have to spend a lot of time searching for a business. If you just wait for the right one to appear in the newspaper or online, you will be waiting a long time. Most business sales are kept very confidential. This means that there are always many businesses on the market that are not advertised.
Additionally, there are always many owners who are seriously considering selling but have not yet listed their Calgary businesses for sale. Successful business buyers are proactive, seeking out companies on their own, and diligent, checking newspapers and other sources every day to see what’s new.
The process will be much more efficient if you have done your work in identifying the kind of business you’re looking for.
