My office is located in a office / manufacturing park. There are probably 30-40 buildings clustered. Recently, I couldn’t help but notice many For Sale signs. I drive past about twelve buildings on my way to my office, and there were recently six for sale.
On the For Sale sign for every building, there was a common item. They each indicated that the business was moving to a bigger location.
That’s a lot of growth. It got me wondering, is this anything to worry about?
For Sale Signs Are Good, Right?
Many would argue that for sale signs are good in this context. After all, the businesses are all moving. That means they’re growing. Ten years ago, we saw a large number of For Sale signs, but for a different reason. During those times, businesses were folding or shrinking.
Growth means many positive things.
