On November 9, 2017, we held a webinar titled “Assisted Living: Buying, Selling and Valuing in a Market Peak,” which you can watch here. Over the course of 90 minutes, our Editor, Steve Monroe, led a discussion featuring Jeff Binder of Senior Living Investment Brokerage, Kevin Kreshover of KeyBanc Capital Markets, Chris Kronenberger of Blue Moon Capital Partners, and Chris Wettig of Legend Senior Living, covering topics that varied from selling AL communities in today’s market, to the added value of adding memory care to an AL community, to whether it is cheaper to build or buy now. And of course, are we currently in, passed, or heading towards a market peak?

The webinar yielded some interesting answers and insights from our panelists, but we also involved the audience in a couple of the questions. And here are the results:

  1. Do you think we are at a market valuation peak for assisted living?
