hey guys and gals- i was talking with a guy who i have known for many years now. he wants to get out and move to florida. here is what he wants to sell me. only accounts. there are between 60 and 70 of them. they range in prices from 25 - 125 a cut. i would say though that there are more under 50 than there are over 50. there is only 1 at 125. and that is something like 3 acres. it takes 3 of his guys 2 1/2 - 3 hrs to cut. they use 48" walk behinds. and do all of the accounts in about 2 1/2 to 3 days. 3 guys. he has some fertilization accounts. lots of work, i could make the money back on tree work alone. he does between 90 and 100 thousand dollars a year in business. not profits but before expenses in checks. he claims that there is a lot of cash too. my accountant told me to give him a percentage of the money made off the accounts for a period of time. however i know if i do that it would be too much seeing as how my work (trees) costs a lot more than what he does there now. he is telling me that he wants like 100K for just the accounts. i think he is out of his mind. he told me that one guy offered him 80 already but he turned it down. i think that all of these numbers are high. so let me know what you think that kind of sale would be worth. a friend of his sold him 50 accounts a couple of years back for 10K but that was just cutting grass accounts which he made money off of from gardening. the lawns from that sale which he kept are not a lot of money. biggest one i believe is 90 a cut. no contracts just per cut. any help would help.
