We would not charge the client (as Seller) any commissions but instead charge a buyers’ premium which is paid by the buyers at the time of sale. We would develop a mutually agreeable expense budget which would cover the costs of marketing, labor, and travel expenditures. All of the expenses would be paid upfront by our Team and then reimbursed to us from proceeds in the sale. The balance of the proceeds would remain with the client.


We would provide a minimum dollar value threshold or financial guarantee to the seller. Under this option, we would have to reach that threshold number before we recoup any expenses or commissions. Once that threshold was met, we would be paid in full for our expenses on the deal and then split any overage between the Client and Our Team based upon mutually agreeable percentages.


We would agree upon a financial value for everything in the facility including the real estate and the seller would be paid that full amount.
