Buying a Hospitality Business

The Hearthside Group offers buyers a comprehensive list of inns, b&b’s, hotels, motels & restaurants available for sale throughout Vermont and New Hampshire. We pride ourselves on introducing buyers to the right properties and on making good matches between buyer and seller.  If we don’t have a particular property type listed we will happily find the right property for you…no matter where that may be.  With experience in over 40 states, we are confident we can find the right match for you.

Most buyers come to The Hearthside Group from out of state. Their decision to buy an inn, bed & breakfast, hotel, motel or restaurant  is due to a desire to change their lifestyle and own their own business.  The ability to tap into their creative side is a huge draw.  Buyers seek to parlay their work experience into an opportunity to run their own enterprise.  For these couples, the opportunity to work together is very appealing.  Inn buyers have often dreamed about owning their own property over a period of years, and for this reason, they are usually successful because their intent is not the least bit tentative.

Beginner Buyer Services:

Is innkeeping just a dream, reality or both? Innkeeping is not for everyone.  We know that.   Hearthside Group provides aspiring innkeeping seminars covering such topics as innkeeping lifestyle, operations, marketing and financing sprinkled with real life examples from their own innkeeping experiences.  See our Seminar page for more information.

 Serious Buyer Services:

 Ready for the next step?  Let us help you.

Buyer Representation Program – How do I purchase the right inn for me?  Through Hearthside Group’s buyer representation service, we will analyze your buyer profile, help develop an inn model that maximizes your skill sets and prioritized needs, find appropriate inns (anywhere in the country) and then guide you through the intricate sale process from the initial offering, negotiations, financing, inspections to the closing sale of the inn.

Valuation Services:  How much is an inn truly worth?

No prospective innkeeper wants to overpay for a business.

Get a valuation first… before you put in an offer!

Hearthside Group can provide valuation services that determine the true value of an inn, not the asking price.   Our service includes reviewing the financials of the business, viewing the inn and determining values for the building, furnishings, other assets, the marketing and operational performance and the strength of the destination area.  This process helps to determine not only the value but the opportunities for you should you buy the inn.

Contact us and let us help you find the right services for your needs.
