If you are buying a business from online listings, becareful of scams. The listing provider does not screen through all the postings of businesses for sale.
In one particular example, we found a website called “retailhighstreet.com” with selling price of £18,450, and a sales revenue of £200 – 500k… does this make any sense?
Obviously, the sales revenue does not match the asking price for the website. However, the owner would not be able to sell the site any higher, because we are unable to locate the website today. The link is redirected to this website instead: http://www.internetbusinessesforsale.co.uk/
A few things could have happened.
Firstly, the website (to be sold) was not sold off, and the seller eventually redirected it to their main site.
Secondly, the website was not generating that type of sales revenue/cash flow as stated. The details are fake (sorry, we are just stating the facts).
This is just one example for sharing. Other ways of verifying the website’s real value is to check its traffic ranking at alexa.com, and also its google pagerank. There are websites being sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars, with only a pagerank of 1, and with alexa’s traffic rank above the 100,000 mark.
Back to this particular case study, the following are the listing information for information.
(btw, these information are available openly on the web as is today, nothing is fabricated. Just open your eyes and ask if the whole thing makes any sense at all).
- Asking price:
- Sales revenue:
- £200k < 500k
- Cash flow:
- £250k < 500k
- Years established:
- Home based:
- This business can be run from home.
- This business can be relocated.
