I have been offered a chance to buy 2 salons. I am trying to find out what might be a good price. They are in great locations and are doing a great amount of revenue right now. The beds are leased and he owes on them. There are 14 total beds. Any advice

When you're done with that, give us some more details. How far apart, how much revenue, how old are the beds, how long have the salons been in business in each location, what is the competition like, etc. You know, the little things.

Thanks for the advise. I think I have decided to open one myself, it will cost less. he wanted way to much and on top of that owed a whole lot on the beds.
