Sell your business and building to Flexible in a single transaction, without the costs and complexity of two separate sales. Get fast closing certainty and transition out of your business on your terms while leaving your company, culture, and employees in great hands. A popular alternative to the typical on-market selling process.
Tell us what you want for the future of your company, and any details that are important to you, including whether you want to cash out or stay involved, your closing timeline, goals related to tax-savings or future cash flow needs, and anything else that is important to you. We’ll share ideas of what other owners like you have done to achieve similar goals so you can refine your offer wishlist.
Our offers and our plans for the future of the business are designed to achieve your goals and maximize the price we can pay. Your vision and in-depth knowledge about your business help us create a plan where everyone—you, your employees, your company, and Flexible—wins.
Once you accept our offer, we'll conduct our fast and straightforward diligence process to ensure a smooth closing.
By combining the sale of the business and real estate into one transaction with Flexible, you eliminate the risk of a failed or flawed transaction with one asset decreasing the value of the other.
Convenience and speed- Get fast closing certainty and skip months or years of typical sale hassles, hundreds of thousands in fees and legal bills, and flakey buyers that change terms last-minute.
Flexibility- Cash out or stay involved in the business on your terms and get paid. Choose between a standard sale or a creative alternative that gives you cash now with higher potential earnings.
Outcome- By selling your business and real estate to one buyer, Flexible, the plans for each asset can be combined to improve performance, maximize potential, and increase the sale price.
Possibility of lower pricing- Hiring a real estate and business broker to list on the market and attempt two separate transactions may result in higher offer pricing and net sale proceeds, even after paying commissions.
Market risk- If you choose a Flexible option that involves retaining equity in your business or real estate, market forces may cause loss of equity, and decline of cash flow and market value.
Future earning potential- If you choose to sell and cash out of both assets, you are giving up access to future potential financial rewards from earnings and asset appreciation. Some Flexible real estate Offer Types give you benefits beyond those of a standard sale, including the potential to earn more and receive passive income.
You own a business that occupies your property. You sell your business and property to Flexible for $10,000,000 with a 60-day closing.
During the transaction
Flexible contributes a deposit of $250,000 and spends 30 days conducting due diligence. After diligence is completed, the deposit becomes “non-refundable” and is yours to keep.
The sale closes and you receive $10,000,000 less third-party costs of sale (e.g., escrow fees). Flexible does not charge commissions or fees.
This example is simplified to exclude details that vary by owner and transaction, including the impact of taxes, tax savings, and miscellaneous third-party transaction costs.
Every Flexible offer is custom-built to achieve owners’ goals. For a Business and Building Sale, here are the most important items to consider:
The type of sale you want for both assets, whether a standard sale or a creative alternative designed to achieve a financial or lifestyle goal.
Your role in the company after the sale closes, if any, and related details including compensation, areas of responsibility, and future flexibility.
If you want to remain a part of the company after the sale, you can design your role, responsibilities, compensation, and anything else that is important to you.
Special instructions for team members, including co-founders, investors, employees, or customers. Instructions may include continued employment, buyouts, bonuses, and more.
The date when the transaction is complete.
Most owners who choose a Business and Building Sale want a clean break without post-closing involvement, and fast closing certainty. Flexible can provide a non-refundable deposit soon after signing a contract to give you confidence that your transaction will close, and schedule a closing for any date in the future.
When you request an offer, we’ll share options so you can choose your desired combination of offer features and make an informed choice. We can include preapproval to make changes after reaching an agreement so you have flexibility as the future unfolds.
Finding your replacement will be at the top of our to-do list. We’ll look to you for ideas to promote from within, and if that isn’t a viable option, we’ll use our network and resources to conduct a speedy and effective search for a leader that is a strong culture-fit with the knowledge and skills to perform.
We look for growing, profitable, simple businesses with an established track record, run by a capable and ethical team.
We purchase businesses with $1,000,000+ annual revenue in the most recent calendar year.
We can purchase a partial interest in the business, the real estate, or both.
Our offers are customized to maximize the collective ownership group’s satisfaction. Flexible will ensure each co-owner receives the terms they want, whether it’s cashing out, staying in, or both.
We’ll determine if your loan can be paid off without penalty and, if the rate is below market, whether it can be assumed. If we can keep a below-market rate loan in place, we may be able to increase our offer price.
We’ll work with you to coordinate our onsite inspections and collect business and property information as part of our due diligence. If certain materials are not available or easily accessible, our team can help find other ways to get the information we need.
Typical transactions prohibit owners from making changes or canceling. With Flexible, you get unlimited offer adjustments and seven days after accepting our offer to cancel.
