    I have a landscape maintenance business that is mostly residental and some commercial that Iam considering selling. What is the formula to calculate a selling price? :confused:

    The gross weekly maintenance earnings of one year, plus the price of equipment.

    Yeh just a little.

    I think as a general rule (very generic) it is about 3 cuts worth, sometimes a months worth. So if you have 25 accounts at $30 each weekly cut that would be a bout $90 per account ==$2250. And then plus the equipment and other factors.

    From what I have seen it has been a months to two months max per account + value of equipt.

    Depends on a lot of factors. Generally one year gross plus equipment

    This seems logical to me...epecially if there are old or no contracts.

    Like the others...good luck with that one!
