But, for some, these may simply be justifications to try to hide the reality of altering demographics, increased competition, recent decrease in earnings, or a variety of other factors. This is why it is really important that you not rely entirely on a vendor's word, yet instead, make use of the seller's answer along with your general due diligence.
