Seller financing is usually the cheapest and easiest to obtain. It also tells the Buyer that the seller has confidence in the business. There are no loan fees and the interest rate are usually lower than the business loans for a bank, but the term of the loan is often shorter. Seller financing makes up a large portion of the notes on businesses sales. Banks will loan money on Florida businesses for sale that show a strong earnings history on the tax returns. They require proper financial documentation and the payment of upfront fees. Small Business Administration (SBA) loans or rather bank loans which are guaranteed by the SBA are always a good source of funding, for a Florida business for sale, where there is a good financial track record and a buyer with some business or like industry experience.
