This is why it is very crucial that you not depend entirely on a seller's word, yet rather, make use of the seller's response along with your overall due diligence. This will repaint a more realistic picture of the business's current scenario.
Existing Debts and Future Obligations

Numerous businesses borrow money with the purpose of covering things like stock, payroll, accounts payable, etc. Bear in mind that sometimes this can imply that revenue margins are too small. Lots of businesses fall into a revolving door of taking loans as a way to pay back various other loans. Along with debts, there may also be future commitments to consider.

Undoubtedly, the more individuals that see the business often, the better the opportunity to develop a returning customer base. A last thought is the general area demographics. Is the business located in a densely inhabited city, or is it located on the outside border of town? Exactly how might the regional median household earnings effect future earnings potential?
