    Wondering what values people are paying for accounts.

    I've seen $1.00-1.25 per yearly gross on application accounts.

    For mowing I've seen $0.30-0.40 yearly gross dollar.

    Any value on repeat mulch or pruning customers?

    I'm curious how long people have dragged out the payments? 6, 12, 18 months??

    The company i'm in talks with has been around for 20+ years but doesn't have a website, truck lettering, or direct mail. I do and making the deal would put me in a completely different market that I'm not in.

    So I'm trying to figure out what the cost of picking up 30ish account(if they all transfer) and the added fact of my truck and mailers being seen.

    I'm haveing a hard time grasping the potential of having to pay more than 1 years gross, but entering the market may allow my to pick up even more work.
