Hello: I'm looking to sell my lawn care business that I started over 8 years ago. To date, I have a full building of equipment, established accounts, and a soild rep in the community. I'm selling the business becasue I want to go to school full time and have found other, less expensive (in terms of equipment needed, man power, and time required) jobs that I can do while in school to keep a steady cash flow coming in for myself. Above all, as many of you know from your own businesses, I just don't want to deal with all the hassels while I'm in school (such as employees, repairs, etc.) I figure if it's still what I want to do later, there will always be grass that needs to be cut. Therefore, how should I go about selling my business? I'd like to sell it all out as one deal (equipment setup, accounts, extra equipment, etc.). Is there a special way to find the value of the account contracts when you're selling them? What about the equipment...just fair market price? I'd like to have the business sold by the spring of next year. I'm located in Colorado in a market area that has alot of potential. Let em know what you all think how I should go about the selling. Thanks!
