Share

What’s up with Capitalization Rates?

Share

There are a number of variables that impact capitalization rates. Sellers always ask, “What capitalization rates are you seeing out there?” There is no easy answer.

Some of the blockbuster, portfolio deals that have been announced for 6% – 8% capitalization rates don’t tell the whole story. Was occupancy at 85% – 88% with a real, stabilized capitalization rate closer to 9%? Did the operator use a REIT and put some equity into the deal above and beyond the reported price the REIT paid, resulting in an overall higher capitalization rate?

It is dangerous to apply publicly announced capitalization rates to your operation as a means to determine value. To determine value, you need to consider age, location, condition, occupancy, payor type/rates, demographics, future upside, etc.

Allow me to put together a confidential analysis of your facility or portfolio. Senior Living Investment Brokerage, Inc. represented more transactions than any other firm over the last three years. We are able to draw from national data, as well as the large number of transactions we represented. Let us determine an accurate capitalization rate for your skilled nursing or assisted living facility in this ever-changing market.

Share

The 64 bed nursing facility was built in 1969, the 32 Assisted Living units, 14 Alzheimer’s units and 2 Independent Living duplexes were constructed in 1999. The Nursing Facility is located a few blocks from the ALF/ILF campus. The census at the time of sale was 93% SNF and 78% for the ALF/ILF. Despite the overall census, the facility was not profitable. The Seller of the CCRC was a not-for-profit community board. After a very competitive bidding process, the successful buyer was an owner/operator headquartered in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. With an existing presence in Kansas, the Buyer anticipates improving the operating efficiencies.
