Analysis

The price is not that high. On the other hand, you are not getting a lot. Search traffic is fairly minimal, customer base is small and there's not much of a brand. There's certainly some benefits in saving time / effort in getting started and there is the potential of getting incremental / more customers from the existing customers or visitors.

In particular, given that the current ownership has not invested much into the business recently, there is potential to improve the site / marketing.

Warning

Make sure to do due dilligence if you consider buying this or any business, especially to verfiy financial and operational claims. We are just passing this along and have no financial interest in this deal.
