Getting into business is often easier than getting out of business and buying an operating business puts you on the fast track to success. The challenges are, how do you broadly expose your interest in selling without causing undue worry or defections among employees and customers? Where do I find businesses for sale? How do I discreetly let people know I’m interested in buying or selling?

ViewPoint will generate qualified buyer leads for your business without identifying it. We do this by advertising on our map/site that there are businesses for sale. We only indicate the general region, industry and company size range (ie, small, medium or large business) - just enough to pique interest.
Your request has been received and we will get back to you soon to discuss the details.
There is no up front cost to list your business with ViewPoint. We only earn a fee if we find the buyer and upon closing of the sale to that buyer. The fee is negotiable and can be a flat fee and/or a percentage of the purchase price.
Traditional business brokers don’t have the ability to reach large audiences. They typically have a small list of buyers that they manually solicit when given a mandate by a business owner. This is the old-fashioned inefficient way that doesn’t generate optimal exposure which is necessary to achieve an optimal result.
Advertising on our map will only indicate the region, industry and company size range (ie, small, medium or large business) - just enough to pique interest. The identity and other particulars of your company will only be released to qualified, pre-screened buyers upon your approval.
ViewPoint is open to cooperating with business brokers in the marketing of business listings on viewpoint.ca.
