But, for some, these may simply be reasons to attempt to conceal the reality of altering demographics, increased competition, current reduction in profits, or a range of various other reasons. This is why it is really important that you not rely completely on a vendor's word, yet rather, make use of the seller's answer in conjunction with your overall due diligence.
