For instance, they might state "I have too many various responsibilities" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these factors stand. But, for some, these might simply be excuses to try to hide the reality of altering demographics, increased competition, recent reduction in profits, or an array of various other factors. This is why it is very crucial that you not count entirely on a seller's word, however rather, use the vendor's response in conjunction with your overall due diligence.
