myself and a friend have been considering opening a greenhouse business. yesterday i picked up a copy of homes and land, and lo and behold, there was one for sale. asking price is $100,000. it has 3 hothouses, 1 cold house, large storage building, on 1 1/2 acres, with a creek and plenty of room for expansion. we have an appointment to go take a good look at the place saturday. what i saw was irrigation and fertilizer systems all in place, heated with propane, all on a busy state road, soon to be designated as a scenic route. the place was spotless, and the plants gorgeously healthy, no sign of disease. the owner did say that he wanted more than the 100K if we buy the stock as well. is this a common practice when buying a business? he said he had roughly 40K in plants and trees. he even had it set up to sell water plants, and says he will help us and advise us the first year to get us started. so, does this sound like a good deal? it does to me, but i want to be careful too.
