What is the best way to find a business for sale for small-business entrepreneurs?

There are 3 main ways to find a small business for sale:

1) Use a buyer’s M&A agent

2) Look for businesses listed for sale with a broker

3) Do the legwork yourself and start direct approaches in that industry

The best way is to approach businesses in your target area directly, rather than looking at listings (often referred to as off-market). Listings are often overpriced, and there will be a lot of competition for the best ones.

Take a look at our article explaining the process of looking for a business for sale using the direct approach, using a broker or engaging a buyer’s agent.
