    I am in process of buying about 300 mowing accounts + all the other services total worth $600k. How much should I be paying. What a good deal and whats a STEAL. Any help would be appreciated.

    You need to get alot farther into the numbers. What is the gross and net numbers? Why are they getting out ? Equipment included or not , what is actual value of the equipment, are they high on these numbers or right on. Its the end of the season so I would offer less just based on that. Concracts in writting or just good faith? How bad do you want it ? How bad do they need to sell it? Are you sure you can take on 300 accounts ? Will the sign a noncompete ? Sounds like you have alot more to look into.

    Check on all of these
    Combined Monthly Service Amount?
    Average age of accounts?
    Covenant Not to Compete Period?
    Guarantee Period?
    Payment History?
