But, for some, these might simply be excuses to try to conceal the reality of transforming demographics, increased competition, current decrease in revenues, or a variety of other factors. This is why it is very crucial that you not rely entirely on a seller's word, but instead, make use of the vendor's answer combined with your total due diligence.
