Business broker Herman Petrecca of Business Connection Plus in Warminster, Pennsylvania, specializes in small-business sales and says that he is continuing to make sales, but many of them are buy-and-flips. “There are buyers out there, but many are looking to buy at distressed prices so that they can turn around and re-sell the businesses,” he explains.
