NIC: Senior housing deals show signs of slowing
A total of 514 seniors housing and care deals closed in 2015, making it the second year in a row that closed transactions topped 500, according to Beth Mace, National Investment Center for Seniors Housing and Care chief economist and director of capital markets outreach.
The number in 2014 was higher, at 554, however, Mace wrote in a Feb. 3 blog post.
The average per-unit price remained at near-record highs in 2015, at $174,000, although only two sales exceeded $1 billion and the larger deals occurred in the earlier months of the year, she said. Almost 80% of the transactions were single-property sales, Mace wrote, with the rest being portfolio sales. The year 2015 saw more portfolio sales than did 2014, but 2014 had more single-property sales.
