What’s For Sale………..Not Much!!

At present there is a distinct lack of decent business opportunities available, mainly due to many “baby boomers” (our traditional market) delaying the decision to sell for the obvious reasons (concerns as to the current value of their business and perhaps a loss in asset value of their investment portfolios hence the decision to continue on for another 2-3 years).

This situation will gradually change as motivation for selling occurs naturally (e.g. ill health, partnership dissolution or simply running out of energy to operate the business). For the moment there is a hiatus in the supply of the better businesses on the open market.
