How to Use the BBF Businesses for Sale Listing Service


Banyan Capital Group is a member of the Business Brokers of Florida (BBF), which allows us to represent you on your search to buy a business in Florida with other brokers. This network consistently has over 3,000 businesses for sale at any one time and is the largest state broker association in the United States and the second largest association of business brokers in the world.

Conducting your search on the listing network is very efficient and below are some considerations to help you best utilize the system. If you have any questions, please contact us.  

General Search

  • Select the type of business (e.g., established business, etc.)

  • Select the county or counties in Florida

  • Select the business category or select multiple business categories to expand your search or select sub-categories to narrow your search

  • Select the minimum and maximum selling price range

  • Select the minimum adjusted net. Generally speaking, this is the reported discretionary earnings or cash flow to the owner of the business in the most recent fiscal year. We recommend using a lower figure than your threshold as operating results may change and not be timely reported here.

  • Click on Start Search 


Advanced Search Options

  • Features include expand search by SIC codes, down payment requirements, minimum and maximum gross sales, by listing or office numbers, and listings modified in the last number of selected days.

  • Features also include ability to show only businesses that are relocatable, home based, franchises, lender pre-qualified, may qualify for visa, have real estate or not, and have certain data sources (e.g., tax return, etc.)

  • Most users find the following advanced search features to be the most helpful:

    • Minimum and maximum gross sales ​if user is interested in top-line financial results

    • Lender pre-qualified includes those businesses that have been pre-approved by a bank for underwriting for SBA loan purposes, which generally are higher quality business listings

    • Listings modified in the last number of selected days can show those recently updated

  • One important note on the data sources is that "Owner to Prove" or "Owner Estimate" will typically be less reliable than "Tax Return" or "P/L Statement" when it comes to the financials presented

  • Once you've selected your criteria, click on Start Search

Selecting a Business and Getting More Information

  • After your search, click on "Click for more details" and then the "See More Details" button

  • If interested in getting additional information, click on "Click Here to Have the Agent Contact You"

  • Complete the Contact Name, Email Address and Message and click send

  • We will be notified immediately and strive to respond to all inquiries the same business day

  • We will provide a Confidentially Agreement for you to sign and then will request additional information from the listing broker. In some cases, a listing broker may require additional information on a buyer prospect. We can guide you through items needed, work with each listing broker on your behalf and assist you in your consideration of each business opportunity.
