just wondering what is a good rule of thumb for buying accounts. currently looking at buying a spraying biz. we just bought a pro lawn sprayer for on the front of my grasshopper and my dad just got certified so we can legally spray. guy isnt ready to get out just quite yet but sometime in the near future. lets say his accounts are worth 50k(not really just throwing a figure out). what would u offer him for the accts? is their a rule of thumb like a certain percentage? also what would u put in the contract a certain amount off the price for every customer that doesnt want u to continuing spraying their lawn. pay in installments or in large lump sum. just curious wanted to know sum of your guys' opinions.
