Buying an Existing Business
Please respond to the following:

  • Use the Internet to find a business for sale in your community. Uncover as much as you can about the business in question. Be prepared to discuss.

I really don’t have a lot of businesses here in my town for sale. The only thing here are Gas Stations, Land, Restaurants, and Apartment Complex. Out of the 4 categories I picked Apartment Complex. It is a multifamily property. It is a 2 story building on 14 acres. Room for parking. The property currently has the value of a condo conversion to affordable housing. There is a big need for affordable housing and this a quite simple rehab.The property is locally situated. Tenants pay for their own utilities, 14 garden bldg., playground, parking.

Price: $400.000

Building Size: 88,000 sf

# of Units: 108

Description No. Units Sq. Ft.
one bed room 16 740
Two bed room 40 740
Three bed room 32 925
Four Bed room 20 1,055
  • Create a strategy for negotiating the purchase of the business you selected in the e-Activity.

The price that is on the internet is $400,000, but the asking price is $370,000. Nearby properties are priced at $20,597.69 according to website www.loopnet.com/property.  So since there is a lot of rehab that has to be fixed; I will hire a contractor to give me an estimate on the apartments and the grounds. With that estimate I will offer a price of $380,000. I also have a partner that okayed this price with me. We will go to the bank and get a loan.
