Frequently asked questions

Embarking on a new chapter with Dwelly can be a big step. We’re here to address any queries to simplify your transition

Why should I sell my business now?

When owners approach us, they mention various reasons for selling their business. Some are looking to make a change in their life, e.g. vacation, new venture, retirement.  Other owners exit because of the limited growth potential of their current business, e.g. needing funds to speed up the growth, enter new markets, or launch new products. Some are looking to take advantage of the current high demand for portfolio acquisitions - interest in portfolio consolidation will not last forever.

Why should I choose Dwelly over well known Corporates?

We are entrepreneurs who have built a digital lettings platform ourselves. Our team has an extensive background in operations and speaks your language. Our priority is to preserve the legacy you’ve built and take it to the next level together. You receive more for your business than from other big-name Corporates. Your payouts are linked to revenue, not to EBITDA.

How long does it take you to close deals?

Usually, we close deals in 60 days. We start with a short intro meeting, then we sign an NDA and evaluate your business. If all goes well, we proceed with a letter of intent and due diligence (3-4 weeks). Finally, all legal papers are signed, and the funds are disbursed.

Can I receive a referral fee for introducing you to another seller?

Sure, just get in touch with us. We are compensating fairly all referrals we receive.
