Some Real Estate Brokers specialize in types of properties and businesses like we do as California gas station brokers. Not all commercial brokers, let alone realtors, know how to sell gas station businesses and properties. Selling gas station properties should be sold by an inexperienced broker because of the complexities involved with equipment, tanks, environmental concerns, various regulating authorities and the types of income streams involved for valuation purposes.
Just as you wouldn’t consult a chiropractor for cardiac problems, you would undermine your investment by choosing a broker who are not experienced California gas station brokers. We know gas stations and have represented buyers and sellers throughout the California. We are THE leading California gas station brokers in the state.
Gas Station Sellers
The first step to a successful gas station sale is knowing the value of the business and property. Valuing a gas station is complicated. Unlike most businesses that have a relatively straight-forward Profit & Loss (P&L) statement, valuing gas stations gets complicated because there are so many more variables.
California gas station brokers know that there are several moving parts which require knowledge, experience and skills in computing the Most Probable Sales Price (MPSP).
- Valuing numerous income streams (i.e. auto repair, convenience stores, etc.)
- Computations involved with gross profit and margins for the gas station business owner
- Computations involved with the number & the types of tanks underground (fiberglass or steel)
- Types of fuel sold
- Condition of equipment such as the dispensers
- Contamination risks and history
- Location factors influencing fuel margins
- Competition factors influencing fuel margins
- Branded or independent
- Whether commercial real estate is included in the sale
- Size and quality of commercial real estate if included in the sale
- If property is to be leased, the duration and quality of lease terms
- Fuel pricing and factoring in market volatility
- Whether there is a Fuel Supply Agreement and the favorability of those terms
- Seasonality factors influencing earnings (i.e. location by a university where earnings drop during summer months)
- Duration & quality of vendor contracts
- Impact of local economy on pricing and margin volatility
