Thinking about buying.........

ok guys heres the deal. i know a guy thats a mechanic and is thinking about retiring. well he wants to sell his place he owns. its a 4 bay gerage with 2 lifts and a 180 gallon air compressor. i dont know what all tools he is thinking about taking. i know his hand tools for sure but i dont know about what else. there is also another littler gerage off to the side (thats where i have been doing my auto painting) its a small 2 car gerage. the guy wants about $250,000 for the land and everything. i see it as a place i could do ALOT of stuff out of. my big thing is is there any government grants i can get?? i know a loan is a option but i keep hearing about these grants. i also have a couple guys that are willing to go in with me on it. the main gerage is set up great. theres even enough room for me to install a paint booth. what do you all think?? any advice or info on the grants?? if i run a bussiness out of there is there waht can i write off my taxes??

thanks for any info!!

Nick

I had this big reply all typed out and then I hit something which made it all disappear.

In short

Grants are hard to get. Plus you will not get the full $250,000 in one grant. Maybe 10%-20%. You may concider going non-profit and doing community service.

If the place doesn't have a paint booth it now or was used as a body shop, it will be expensive to put one in. Darn EPA.

Taxes; get a good book keeper and a tax preparer or a CPA you can trust.

U.C. has Small Business Classes for little money. You may want to take one. I did, it tot me alot

lol, i might not rent it to you but i would help ya work on stuff, it would be fun. if this is not a go on buying that place my aunt said she would let me build a big pole barn in her back 40. i could put a booth in the or build my own and i could always pour the concrete thick enough for me to install a lift. so that is another option also.

are you thinking about having a pouring party...or a barn raising party. If you do this I could probably make the time to come up and help on a weekend or two. Would anyone else be willing to join up and help out?
