Full Answer

Gas stations can range from as low as $100,000 to more than $1 million in price, depending on the location as well as the amount of cash flow involved and typical profit margins. All of the sales listings have contact information that allows potential buyers to reach out to the sellers for any questions that they may have about the property.

Before opening up a station, it is important for new gas station owners to consider whether or not owning a gas station will fit their skill set as it is best for owners to be strong mathematicians, bookkeepers and organized. It is also important that the new owner take steps to remove personal liability and customer injury liability. A thorough understanding of hiring, overseeing employees and utilizing payroll is also advisable. If a person does purchase a gas station, a business attorney should be called to walk the buyer through the necessary legal steps for a successful business.
