2011 expected to be a banner year


While attending the ASHA conference in Phoenix, Arizona, the outlook for 2011 was encouraging.

A few key factors to consider.

1) REITs have been leading the charge with new capital pouring into the market.
2) 2011 will be a defining year for debt. The local, regional and national lenders will deploy capital into the market like REITs did in 4Q and plan to do throughout 2011.
3) Seniors Housing and long-term care loans have out performed every other sector.
4) There is greater demand than supply of properties available to purchase. If you have thought about selling, now would be an ideal time.

Interest rates remain at historic lows and there is very little supply in the market. Take advantage of increasing values and high demand for your facility. Please contact me at for a confidential proposal to determine market value.
