Active Adult Developments Stay Active Across America

Active adult new construction activity continued apace this past week with multiple developers breaking ground on communities throughout the country. We are sure rising interest rates have stopped a number of projects, but many developers surely see plenty of opportunity in the emerging sector. As covered in our active adult webinar in June, one question that arose was whether it’s better to build or buy active adult communities right now. Back then, the answer was a resounding “Both.” However, in light of the high capital costs these days, purchasing a community at a 4% cap rate when the 10-Year Treasury Yield is approaching 4% may not make as much sense right now. In Northampton,... Read More »

60 Seconds With Swett: SNF Values Have Hit Their Peak

We have hit a valuation peak for skilled nursing facilities, and we do not feel like we are going out on a limb in saying it. That is because soaring interest rates have made acquiring facilities at extremely high prices much more expensive. The realities of a difficult operating environment concerning labor and inflation must also be top of mind for lenders, which are probing deals very deliberately, as they should. Regulatory issues have also made deals tougher, and longer, to close, and delays can be especially costly as the Fed keeps increasing rates. That being said, we have also heard of more than several cases of renegotiations, final bids coming in lower than the initial bids, and... Read More »
