Selling a cafe in Perth? These brokers can help!

When it comes to placing your cafe for sale in Perth there are a number of factors you need to consider. One of the most important decisions is how you intend to market, negotiate and ultimately sell your cafe. 

Business Brokers are licensed professionals who can guide you through the process from preparing the business for sale to the final settlement and handover. 

In Western Australia, business brokers need to be licensed with WA Commerce and hold a ‘Individual agent or business agent licence - real estate’. You can check the license of your broker via the WA Commerce website. Anyone who is operating without a license is liable to a $100,000 penalty.   

If you are looking to sell your cafe in Perth, then you want to ensure you are working with a business broker who has the necessary skills and experience in selling your type of business. There’s no point engaging a broker who has never sold a cafe. You are paying for that expertise.
