For instance, they may claim "I have a lot of other commitments" or "I am retiring". For many sellers, these factors stand. But also, for some, these may simply be justifications to attempt to conceal the reality of transforming demographics, increased competition, current reduction in revenues, or an array of other factors. This is why it is extremely crucial that you not depend entirely on a vendor's word, but rather, make use of the seller's response combined with your general due diligence. This will paint a much more sensible picture of the business's existing circumstance.
