A Gas Station Broker is uniquely qualified to sell gas stations. The process of buying and selling gas stations is complicated and much more so than most types of small business sales. The reason for the complication is that there are far more moving parts to the sale of gas station than other types of businesses. Oftentimes, a gas station offers multi-services such as convenience stores, quick service restaurants (QSR) which is also known as fast food, cafes, car washes, and quick automotive services such as oil and lube jobs. With multiple services, the operations of the business become more challenging, lucrative and rewarding. Having a highly skilled and experienced gas station broker to help you navigate a business sale transaction, commercial real estate and SBA financing is crucial to your success.
A Gas Station Broker uses different types of valuation methods to determine the profitability of gas stations. Most businesses are valued on standard valuation methods known as Seller’s Discretionary Earnings (SDE), EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization) or Asset-Based Valuations, Essentially, valuations are based on a standardized cash flow which is then multiplied by a factor to comparable sales within the region. Gas station valuations are used by the parties to determine the sales price as well as by a lender involved in financing the gas station transaction.
Gas Station Brokers determine the valuation of a gas station based on the gallons sold, type of gas sold as well as the valuation of additional income streams from allied services. Additional income streams for gas stations include auto repair, oil changes, car washes, convenience stores, cafes, and other types of services. Each component of the business must be valued and then combined to determine the business’ financial portrait.
In addition to the challenges of valuing the business of gas stations, there is also the additional complications of analyzing, valuing and appraising gas station real estate. Gas Station Real Estate Brokers sell just the real estate associated with property sales. The complications arise from the property size, location, environmental impact and the gas station storage tanks located beneath ground.
