How would you go about selling your business without a business broker?
If you assume you pay 6% for a business broker, then if you get more than 7% more by going through a broker, you're better off. Just make sure you're working with a professional. Get references of past deals, happy sellers, and call them. Check the broker out well.
That's just my opinion.
