Hi fellow investors. I have a deal virtually sitting right in front of me I just don't know what/how to stucture it. This is what I have. I have a good friend of mine and his wife who have a sucessfull dog grooming that they want to sell. They have a good client base, have been in business for nearly 10 years, have a great high visability location in a small commercial retail center on a major street in Denver. These two are EXTREEMLY motivated, (moving to Florida) soon and just want out (not the business, they want out of Colorado). They hadn't even considered selling the business till I suggested it. I was wondering, I think I could get them to sign a contract to purchase then flip the contract just like a wholesale real estate deal. I could get the business for a realy good price and wholsale or sell to retail buyer. Asking price at a guess for wholsale would be approx 40k at a guess. Gross anual receipts at a guess 100k plus, cash flow 50k plus. These #'s are purely guess work on my part, they're usually busy as hell down there with at least dozen dogs a day! I haven't taked to them yet regarding what the actual #'s are but they said they have them and they'd be happy to provide me with them. These two are going to try listing it and selling themselves, but I'd kind of like to lock it up myself first if this can be done.
