Find A Florida Business For Sale

 Businesses for sale in Florida

First….let me get your attention by asking you an important question:

  • If you had just $100k to buy a business – which would you rather own…one that earns a $50k a year income or $500k a year?.

If you said $500k a year – you might want to call me to find out – HOW?  BUY A LENDER PRE-QUALIFIED  business – the businesses’ tax returns have already been examined by a bank and have been approved for a loan to purchase the business with 15% down, in some cases as little as 10% down. 

Now….here’s something I’ll bet you didn’t know… If you paid $100k cash for a business – it would produce about $50k a year income…. In other words, the business would put $50k in your pocket at the end of the year. Conversely, buying a $1M  lender pre-qualified business with a $150k down could produce $500k cashflow.

The easiest way to Find a Tampa business to buy is to use my Brokers’ database (see buyer links below) of over 4000 businesses in Florida listed for sale.

You can find businesses that are:

  • Lender pre-approved  (Bank will loan $ to buy a business) 
  • Businesses offering seller financing
  • Businesses priced under $100k 
  • Businesses which qualify for an E2 Visa.



  1. Decide how much money you want to make – the select the ADJ. NET column. Select descending and click on the BLUE  diamond. All the data will be rearranged from high to low -making it very easy to scroll down to the income dollar amount you want the business to earn.
  2. Depending on how much money you have to invest – to leverage the amount – select the Down column and select descending – all the data will rearrange by down payment amount needed from high to low – it’s then easier to select a business depending on the price and how much down you need.

It makes it a lot easier to find a good business based either by adj. net (yearly income) or down (indicating owner financing)
