Im thinking about purchasing an existing lawn care company. It would be my first. The purchase price for the equipment seems reasonable. But its the price of the customers that I am leery about. For 54 customers (and who knows how many will stay with me after the transfer + those that were leaving anyways) the owner is charging $6250. 75% are considered loyal customers of over 5 years. 20% of 4 years and the rest 3 years or less. I have seen all the payment schedules and know how much each customer is worth weekly, but how can I judge if im paying the right amount? What would you pay?
