Business Question

Before buying any business, you have to read and study the circumstances that lead the owner of the business to sell it. You have to ask questions like:-what made him to sell the business, why is he so indebted, and what is the possibility that if you start the business you will over come the doom days of the seller.? I suggest that you ignore the first offer and wait for him to be kicked out in order to avert any untowards incident that may occur within the period of his ejection. This will also give you more chances to acquire more knowledge about the environment and the needs of the people of the area.
