    I have an opportunity to purchase 25 lawn accounts from a what will be a ex-lawn maint. company. How do I determine how much to offer for these accounts. He has equipment as well. I will give him seperate offer on equipment. Just curious how to go about it.

    I purchased some accounts earlier this year, I would offer one month's income from those properties. I would also make sure that the owner talks to the customers to inform them that you will be taking over their accounts, then I would go meet w/ the customer. It worked well for me and I didn't lose any of the customers. Most of them are happy to know they will not have to search for a new LCO.
