If it's a site that you already use you should have an idea of how well it works. Something that you'll probably not have considered is how many hits it gets, the quality of those in generating income particularly from any ads on the site etc.
I wouldn't imagine that you could buy the site and just sit back letting the money roll in. If that was the case then no personal circumstances would ever prompt anyone to sell the site.
I'd be more than a little wary.
