Now is the time to buy a business!

It has long been understood that the best time to buy businesses is during an economic downturn.  This is due to a number of reasons: There is less competition from inexperienced and amateur business buyers; price expectations of sellers adjust to reflect fundamental value; well run businesses have better chances of growing market share and so increase profitability.
