Select your broker and work with him/her to find a suitable business,
once you have found what you want you will enter into negotiations
to discuss price, terms, real estate, lease conditions or relocation
of the business. Many owners will help you to finance the business
if you have a sizeable deposit, we suggest you look for these
owners. If the owner is willing to provide you with a loan on
his existing business it is a sign of his confidence that the
business is good and that you are the person to operate it. Commercial
finance is not available to NON US citizens, greencard holders
or if you have not resided there long enough to build up credit.

This is the government agency that will determine whether or not
your investment/business meets the requirements for residency.
We cannot stress how important it is that your application is
submitted correctly, any errors and you go back to the beginning,
your move could be delayed by months or even years.
The selection of your business broker is most important, he/she
should be someone who is reputable with whom you feel comfortable,
his/her role is to find you a suitable business which meets your
requirements and will satisfy the INS (immigration and naturalization
service) guidelines for your future residency. Always appoint
a broker who is knowledgeable in ALL of these aspects, any broker
can sell you a business but if it does not qualify for residency
status you could end up wasting lots of time and more importantly...
money! Your broker will will be able to find hundreds of businesses
and will represent you in any negotiations. Make sure he/she is
a member of the FBBA (Florida Business Brokers Association) and
is properly licensed to represent you.
