After completing approximately 200 senior living market studies and representing clients in millions of square feet of real estate transactions, our team has gained a unique perspective.
Our "boots on the ground" research and analysis looks beyond quantitative demand estimates from secondary sources. Instead, we calculate current economic conditions based on extensive on-site research of existing services, competitor price points, and other key metrics. We are especially adept in locating overlooked pocket markets with unmet need in many primary and secondary senior housing markets.
Senior living providers like you benefit from our in-house real estate team who provides a complete range of services, including:
- Market feasibility studies
- Site search and real estate transaction services
- Lease, buy, build analysis
- Comprehensive cross-site comparative financial modeling
- Property due diligence
