Although I have been reading/learning from Lawnsite.com for several months this is my first post. An opportunity has come up in my area for a small lawn care business. I recently went part-time at my regular job so I thought this might be a good opportunity too jump in. I have been thinking about this for awhile. Here is the Info below. I would appreciate any advice on the situation. Equipment: Trailer - single axel - 6x12 - Wing Gate - fairly new (my est $800) 2000 Exmark Walk-behind 48in - good shape (my est $1800) Stihl Blower (my est $200) 2 homelite weedeaters (my est $250) 38in White riding mower that does not run (my est $200) 13 accounts that bring in $330 per mowing. Quater to half acre (From reading on the lawnsite the going rate for accounts is 1 month or 10% so about $1300). Takes about 12-15 hours to mow all of them including travel time. He is asking $6100. I am thinking $4500 is a pretty good offer but I don't think he will take it. He has indicated several have called and one was pretty interested. Any opinions or advice! Thanks!
