However, for some, these may just be reasons to try to hide the reality of altering demographics, increased competition, current decrease in incomes, or a range of other factors. This is why it is very crucial that you not count totally on a seller's word, however instead, use the seller's response combined with your total due diligence.

Existing Debts and Future Obligations
