The National Investment Center Conference was held in San Diego at the Hilton Bay Front Resort this year. From March 22 to 24, approximately 1600 players from the senior housing industry gathered to participate in this conference.
For years, the NIC has served as the premier meeting place for serious brokers, lenders, attorneys and operators in the senior housing industry. During the conference, attendees were able to meet with other players from all over the country to discuss, setting up deals, transaction specifics, possible partnerships and more.
Successful Operators Shared Proactive Energy
For operators and those looking to build or acquire their next investment in the senior housing industry, the NIC Conference is an invaluable resource and opportunity.
Over the course of two days, the JCH Group held over 35 meetings. Unlike the past, clients initiated 90 percent of those meetings. This led to unusually productive sessions as clients came with specific and relevant deals and topics to discuss.
With plenty of opportunities to network and a mutual eagerness from participants, the NIC Conference produced a successful event for the senior housing industry. There were several breakout sessions, keynote speakers, cocktail parties and meetings that would be unavailable elsewhere. Operators and investments specialists alike shared vital information on how the senior housing industry is changing and what to do about it. Overall, those attending shared a positive outlook, mirroring the findings of the ASHA Conference earlier this year.
The Senior Housing Industry Holds Strong
Operators agreed: the buyer pool has diversified.
Because REIT’s are retracting from the large acquisitions, the playing field has opened tremendously. Players from within and players from other product types can find and build opportunities for senior housing investments with ease.
However, there exists a soft spot in the marketplace. Low inventory makes it challenging for buyers to find the right senior housing investment. With the influx of new players, there can be a disconnect in valuations and how they are derived. Sellers always want the best price and usually take the highest bid. However, the highest bid isn’t always the most probable to close.
With new players entering the marketplace, veterans anticipate mistakes with the learning curve for beginners. With seasoned operators sticking to tested fundamentals, experts expect the senior housing industry to continue to hold strong.
