Got it! It is the Broker or Franchisor's way of trying to qualify you for how interested you are; how close you are to pulling the trigger. So, if you found something you like, how soon would you be ready to make a decision and settle on the business? That is the question they are trying to answer. Theoretically, they are trying to separate the "tire kickers" from the intensely interested prospects.

It's a stand alone question as a pre-qualifier for an investment opportunity. Answer options are: 1-3 months, 3-6 months or 6 months plus.

Quote the whole sentence. Otherwise is is too vague to understand.
