Sale/Purchase of Business in Humboldt

If you are considering purchasing a business or selling a business in Humboldt County, there are a number of important questions that should be considered before you enter into the transaction:

1.         What is the price and how was the price determined?  Is the price based on the seller’s opinion?  Is the price based on the opinion of a business valuation expert or accountant, and, if not,  should one be hired or consulted regarding the sales price?
