    I am in north Texas, DFW area and I have 90 residential mowing accounts. I am looking at selling off my mowing customer base but I have no idea what my accounts are worth. I charge on an average $30 a yard for weekly service. We start mowing in March and end usually the last week of October. A company in the business park where my shop is located is interested in buying out my customer base. Can someone out there tell me what I could reasonably get for these accounts?

    I have never bought or sold any but I would not pay more than $10,000 becouse i could spend that on advertising and get 90 and have established relationships with the customers and set my own pricing and so on
