Through our years of experience, Lighthouse Business Brokers has established a powerful buyer network with thousands of qualified buyers that are specifically looking for high quality businesses in the Chicago and Miami markets. The active buyers in our database include professional investors, private equity firms and venture capitalists that are always looking for high quality acquisition opportunities. We carefully monitor our database of buyers to ensure we are only marketing our exclusive listings to serious, well qualified investors. This powerful resource is routinely used to get our exclusive listings in front of thousands of qualified buyers on day 1 of the listing phase and frequently results in LBB securing multiple offers for our clients. Our extensive buyers database is one of many resources we have at our disposal and is a powerful tool that we use to maximize the sale price of every business we represent.



Most businesses sell within 3-6 months. The overall timeframe will vary by industry and is always dependent on the company's financial performance and the complexity of the transaction.
We carefully screen all buyers and every buyer is required to sign our Non-Disclosure Agreement before providing the company prospectus. In addition, we keep the most important "trade secrets" of each business completely confidential, even during the due diligence phase, ensuring the truly sensitive information is only revealed days before the closing.
There are many different variables (tangible and intangible) that are considered when calculating the listing price including current financial performance, overall business model, profit margin ratios, profitability trends, growth potential, current market demand and many other factors.
