WES S02E06: Due Diligence
If you’ve been following along our buyer’s series in Season 2, this is an episode you don’t want to miss.
In our longest episode to date, Ace and I break down some of the critical issues and steps to take when performing due diligence with website properties.
Now, of course, we can’t cover every single issue that may come up in due diligence, but we do attempt to provide a framework and a specific way to look at deals that will help you separate the good from the bad.
We’ve put together our years of combined experience in reviewing more than a thousand deals into an in-depth review. Hope you enjoy!
