As an example, they may claim "I have way too many various responsibilities" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these reasons stand. But, for some, these may just be excuses to attempt to hide the reality of changing demographics, increased competition, recent decrease in revenues, or a range of various other factors. This is why it is really vital that you not count completely on a seller's word, however rather, utilize the vendor's answer along with your overall due diligence. This will repaint a much more reasonable image of the business's existing situation.
Existing Debts and Future Obligations

Many businesses fall under a revolving door of taking on debt as a way to pay back other loans. In addition to debts, there may also be future obligations to consider. There may be an outstanding lease on equipment or the building where the business resides. The business may have existing contracts with vendors that have to be satisfied or might result in charges if canceled early.

Is the business placed in a largely inhabited city, or is it located on the edge of town? Exactly how might the local median house earnings effect future revenue prospects?
