Something you need to consider when determining the value of buying accounts is: <br>How many accounts could you pick up if you spent $25K on marketing and advertising as opposed to buying some one else accounts?<br> One benefit would be you would be picking and choosing your customers as opposed to getting some one else headaches. We have a guy in this area who lines up customers, does their yard for a while then sales the route to a rookie. He has done this 5 or 6 times in the last 3 years. Basically all you are buying is a list of names unless they are under written contract.
