RECOMMENDATIONS FOR RESOURCES: REAL ESTATE VALUATION
I am currently in talks with a Seller about his business but his net worth is mostly tied to the real estate. He would like to work for a couple more years, before he retires. The Seller has proposed a seller financed transaction with a 20% downpayment. If I buy both the business and real estate, the real estate will be 80% of the proposed transaction. Admittedly, I know very little about real estate transactions, what resources would you recommend? I would like to educate myself about real estate valuations, seller financing and process.
Please note that this transaction is in the U.S.
