It all depends on whether the buyer offers the right price. To be conclusive, a salesman will generally be open to selling their own soul for the right price. Otherwise, they would never have gotten into the sales business in the first place. There is very little that is honorable in salesmanship or the economy. Sometimes, a franchise can appear to be generous, but it is solely for their own gain. They can’t risk losing their business over any altruistic ventures. Otherwise, in the end they have nothing.
Do you want to buy bubble gum or the store? The right price will get you either of them. Of course, government regulators may require more paperwork with buying larger things, but sales of all magnitudes happen all the time. Do you buy on credit? Can you explain where you got your money? Many times people are able to create money out of thin air to make their purchases (in the form of interest or increased valuation).
Maybe the seller is willing to cut a good deal. When I bought a house, the seller was willing to come down considerably for me. He rationalized that I can be the one who pays for the extra sales tax when I sell. He also borrowed me a little money toward the purchase of my house and he made interest off of me at 8%. he didn’t have to sell me the house at full value because he used other means to squeeze money out of me for the property.
A salesman works on getting the best deals they can find. It just so happens that many will find specialization so in product categories to use their specific knowledge in selling at the best price for themselves. A good salesman knows how to raise the value of a product by upwelling it to the max. It may only take pennies to sell a bucket, for example, but a middle man can raise the price considerably.
In the end when a sales woman has nothing left to sell in a building, they can sell the property too. There is a price on everything in this economy. It seems that anything which is free was already built into the price for something else. Even the very air we breathe for free was built into the price of something else. You are not allowed to breathe free air every where. Try breathing free air at Disneyland and you will get kicked out for trespassing.
