The physical assets include an extensive inventory of every kind of furniture, furnishing, and accessory imaginable: sofas, chairs, tables, lamps, rugs, beds, mattresses, pillows, linens, paintings, vases, etc., etc. The cost to replace all these items with articles of similar age and condition would easily exceed $250,000, plus the time and effort to source and acquire them. Nothing is 'old' or 'tired'; the assets are regularly culled so that only the best is used in staging something very much appreciated and valued by real estate professionals.
The owner is open to an extended training, transition, and consultation period, depending on the needs and wishes of the new owner.
Price & Transaction. The price is $199,900 (subject to negotiation and terms). This price is 2x annual SDE and less than the replacement cost of the tangible assets. It is priced to sell.
