Lawn care business tipsLawn Care Business Book
I just got a bunch of properties for 2010 this way. We started to make a deal back in 2008 but it never happened. He wanted too waaay to much for the properties. Being very friendly I always asked if he would reconsider and he didn't. Finally we met up in November of 2009, and he just gave me the properties. He just wanted to rent one of my machines for a week as payment.He realized no-body wanted them for what he was asking and i was the most friendly and stayed in contact with him he said. So it pays to pull the trigger but don't go bankrupt over it.

Very interesting. I feel as if the fertilizing customers hold a lot more value then that actual hard labor accounts like the cutting.

This is very interesting!

Do you remember what multiple he wanted based on their monthly income?

Have you been keeping your eye out to acquire other customers this way?
