    You should take a look at his books, just to see what kind of income and such he has now. He could be doing all those accounts for dirt cheap and not turning a profit.

    Hopefully you meant to add another "0" on the end of his gross/net profits.

    How long has he been in business and what is his reason for selling? What equipment is included and what is that conditon? Make sure everything is tight because as you know...spring is near and new clients don't like it when you miss their property because your mowers were in the shop!

    remember even though you buy the accounts the customer is not obligated keep you . even if they have a contract and you buy the company the contract is with the prior owner not you.

    Dude you really need to work on your grammar. Try breaking those sentences up with one of these.

    This site is full of illiterate people, it is kind of funny and scary at the same time. These people run their own business??!?
