How it works
We learn about your business through a Q&A that covers topics such as operations, finance, and legal. This helps us determine if your company is an operational fit for Poplar.
We review your financials and let you know what the business is worth and the type of offer you can expect from us. Your financials are 100% confidential through a mutually agreed NDA.
If we accept your business, we'll extend you an LOI which outlines what you will get paid. We welcome your attorney to review this. We have worked hard to make the LOI seller-friendly.
You will be given an exclusive period to provide tax returns, bank statements, and other files to verify that the business is as claimed. Our team will then review all your documents.
Our team will draft the purchase agreement. After you and your attorney review the contract comes the fun part! We sign everything, and our third party escrow holds the cash until your business assets are transferred. Then escrow wires you your funds, and the deal is closed!
We will enact our communications plan to help you get the word out about the acquisition. We will help you communicate effectively about the transition with all stakeholders including employees, homeowners, residents, and vendors.
There is a transition period where you help us learn about the business, introduce us to employees/vendors, etc. This is negotiated and agreed upon before the deal closes as to how long and how hands-on the process will be.
Our team works with you to put together our state-of-the-art marketing package to generate leads in your region. We grow our businesses together through referrals, email campaigns, press announcements, and more!

When my business partner wanted to retire, Poplar Homes gave us the exit opportunity we were looking for. Since then, I've been able to join Poplar to apply my tech background as the VP of Product at Poplar Homes.
I sold to Poplar Homes because I was striving to implement new technology and grow the business. By joining Poplar my clients will get a technological upgrade that will seamlessly help manage their properties and provide nationwide expansion opportunities to their portfolios.
