Good News: Businesses continue to sell at a great pace, about the same as last year. Lots of qualified buyers with cash or access to financing. Tons of “businesses” for sale.
Bad News: Tons of “businesses” for sale (again). I use “quotes”, because I feel many businesses on the market are not sellable. They planned poorly, have insufficient books and records, they are in overpriced leases, or are in tough industries like retail/brick & mortar.
