Business Broker fees are set by the individual Business Broker firm and vary. Most firms work on a “Success Fee” where they earn a fee only if the transaction closes. Commission is typically paid from the sale proceeds. Some firms require an upfront retainer fee.

Although there are exceptions, the Commission Percent charged averages about 10% of the transaction amount. Some real estate agents who are completely unfamiliar with business brokerage will offer 6% commission. See Why Business Brokers get 10% and Real Estate Agents get 6%

Select Business Brokers typical fee is 10% of the transaction amount with a minimum. It is a success fee earned only if the transaction closes. We do not usually require an upfront retainer.
