Most businesses for sale are listed by a business broker. A business broker is basically a real estate agent for selling businesses. The primary function of a business broker is to market the business and find a buyer. Business brokers work for the seller, get paid by the seller, and protect the seller's interest.

Finding Plumbing & HVAC Businesses for Sale

There are two common ways to find new plumbing or HVAC businesses for sale:

raise-your-hand-to-ask

Ask Around

Talk to your banker, your accountant, and the account managers at supply houses. Often these people will become aware of businesses that are for sale before they even hit the market. 

Account managers at plumbing & HVAC suppliers also have an excellent pulse on which businesses are thriving, which businesses aren’t, and who is ready to retire. The initial step of asking around may land you a great opportunity before a broker gets their hands on it.

The Internet

Just like searching for a home, brokers use the internet to list plumbing, HVAC, electrical, and other home service businesses for sale. 

Below are a few trustworthy website resources that post HVAC, electrical, and plumbing businesses for sale.

  • Business Broker

  • Bizquest

  • Businesses For Sale

  • Sunbelt Network

Finding the best HVAC business listings

When identifying potential targets, it’s important to remember that business listings are generally made up of the following information:

  • check

    Catchy title

  • check

    General description of the business

  • check

    General information about the business

  • check

    Approximate financial information

  • check

    Brief details of the deal

You’ll notice many of the listings on these sites will be similar. 

Remember, a business broker is only as good as his or her ability to find a buyer. They are marketers who write catchy headlines and make the business sound as good as they can without saying too much. 

Business brokers will be quick to point out how good the business is, how great the market is, how affluent the customers are, how easy it will be to grow the business, how easy it is to run, and how profitable the business is. They will naturally minimize negative values about the business such as logistical problems with location, a negative online reputation, or hidden costs.
