Hello friends,

How should go about putting a price on a relatively small septic business?

I have taken the first small steps to acquiring a septic business in the Northwest by contacting the owner and visiting the business, but so far, we have not talked about price.
My initial research suggests that a typical septic business will have price multiples of 1x revenue or 2-3x EBITDA. However, I haven't seen much information out there and no broker that I contacted has ever sold a septic business in the Northwest.

What are some good resources or strategies I should consider for determining a fair valuation of a septic business?
