I'm just starting out part time & working my nine to five full time. I've come across a fellow who wants to sell . He has about 58 mowing accounts, most residential, generating 39,000 per year . Some are biweekly and others are weekly. He wants 42,000 with truck & equip or 30,000 for accounts. I don't have a good list of equipment yet, but I probably have equipment to handle the business now. Is there a rule of thumb for what accounts should be worth? Percentage of gross, etc? Any assistance will be appreciated, especially from anyone who has had any experience buying or selling accounts.
