How Do I Get Advice on Buying a Gym?

Buy a Gym Today - Profit When? There's an old saying that states, "Free advice is worth [only] what you pay for it." While this is true in many situations in life, how does this homily apply to buying a gym? After all, anyone who wants to buy a gym will need some serious advice on the matter. They will want answers to such questions as, "What kind of gym should I buy?" and "What's the advantage of a franchise over an existing gym?" and "How do I know it's a good price?" and so many more. Additional concerns arise once the reality of buying a gym starts to sink in. Then buyers will want to know, "How much money do I need to operate the gym properly?" and "When will I start to show a profit?" The novice may not even know which questions to ask, not to mention having a clue about the answers. In this situation, free advice is both available and worthwhile. Even the cost of paying for such advice is nominal. Advice on Buying a Gym So do you settle for free advice, or pay som…

Finding Gyms for Sale with Seller Financing

Financing a Gym Purchase Few people who wish to buy a gym have the kind of cash it takes to pay 100 percent of the purchase price up front. Some sort of financing is almost always necessary. The traditional path to financing the purchase of a gym involves sitting down with a banker, filling out a loan application, and waiting to see if you qualify. Once the loan is approved - assuming everything is in order - you have the funds you need to proceed. Whether you are buying an existing gym, starting one from scratch, the path to gym ownership almost always runs through some sort of financial institution, whether commercial bank, credit union, or private equity firm. But there is another route available to you, if you happen to be buying a gym that is already up and running - having the existing gym owner provide some or all of the financing. What is Seller Financing? In its simplest terms, seller financing means that the current owner of a gym offers to carry some or all of t…

Can a Health Club Broker help you Buy a Gym?

If you are considering a health club broker to help you purchase a gym, it is important that you understand exactly what health club brokers do, what help they offer, and what you should look for in a health club brokerage firm. A health club broker works with you to access your needs and help you through the buying process. In most cases, the health club broker's fee is a percentage of the selling price, and is paid once the sale is complete, either by the buyer or the seller. Health Club brokers work somewhat like realtors. A good health club broker will evaluate the gym, and provide you with financial statements and cash flow statements for the gym you are considering. While they do not provide financing, they will usually work with you to find financing, or help the seller to owner finance the gym in a way that protects both parties. A health club broker that is working for you will ask you several questions, including why you want to start a gym, what your educational …
