Why is the Current Owner Selling The Business?

As an example, they might say "I have way too many other responsibilities" or "I am retiring". For lots of sellers, these reasons stand. However, for some, these may simply be excuses to attempt to conceal the reality of transforming demographics, increased competition, current decrease in incomes, or an array of other factors. This is why it is very vital that you not depend completely on a vendor's word, however rather, make use of the seller's answer along with your total due diligence.
