As we all descend upon D.C., please take some time to stop and chat with us at the conference.
So, the 26th annual NIC Conference is upon us. I wonder what the big topic will be this year, if any. In years past there have been exciting developments right before or during the conference, such as Sunrise Senior Living’s share price plunging, or Formation Capital’s billion dollar plus sale of SNFs to GE, or last year the spin-off of skilled nursing assets by Ventas into a new REIT. Will people be talking about Welltower’s billion-dollar acquisition of Vintage Senior Living? Or will it be the upcoming skilled nursing spin-off by HCP? Whatever it is, we will be listening and trying to discern if there are any new trends out there, or anything new that we should be worried about. I am sure the election will be front and center, but we are here to talk about seniors housing, right?
Pricing at its peak? Too much development? Too much capital that may be tightening a bit? Too many newcomers? Whatever it is, come and chat with me and my associate editor, Ben Swett, over the next few days and tell us what you are seeing out there.
