Buying a Retail Home Appliance Business

Jan 27, 2011

The current job market is forcing many Americans to look at other options for earning a living, and many of them are turning to business ownership instead of another unfulfilling job in corporate America.  Perhaps you’ve always had a talent for selling or repairing appliances, or you’re ready to try something new.  A retail home appliance business may be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.  But how does one go about finding a business like this for sale?  Short of hiring a business broker, the Internet offers a variety of resources that connect buyers and sellers in an FSBO business directory. 

A retail home appliance business may be ideal if you are looking to make an investment for your family that is rooted in your local community.  It may also be a fit if you want to invest in a business with great potential and hire someone else to operate it for you.  Either way, there are dozens of excellent opportunities to be found online.  Each of these listings connects the buyer and seller directly, without the need for a middleman.

Just a few simple clicks on the listings at, and you could be corresponding directly with the owner of a home appliance business in South Dakota, which has been in business since 1951.  This recent business listing tells the potential buyer a lot about the opportunity, including the brands of the appliances they sell, the total dollar value of their assets in inventory, equipment, vehicles and fixtures, and the asking price for the business.

If you are interested in buying a retail home appliance business, should be your first stop for the best FSBO business opportunities.
