NORWALK, CT – February 12, 2015 –Irving Levin Associates, Inc. will host an important webinar—part of the Senior Living Business Interactive Webcast Series—on Thursday, February 26, 2015, at 1:00 PM ET, sponsored by Lancaster Pollard.

The current bull market began in the summer of 2010 and prices keep going up and cap rates going down. The supply of capital keeps going up and the cost keeps going down. Experienced seniors housing developers and operators are building new communities, and developers and investors from outside the industry have gone beyond dipping just their toes in the new development market. Once again, demographics and the purported unlimited supply of baby boomers for the new communities is moving capital to the sector.

But at what point do prices get too high? Find out what the average price per unit and bed were for seniors housing and skilled nursing in 2014 and whether they hit new records. How much did average cap rates really decline in 2014? At what point do cap rates ignore the risk premium in seniors housing and care, especially as acuity levels continue to increase? Will the development market drive acquisition prices even higher as these modern state-of-the-art properties come onto the market? Or will there be a development bust down the road with fire sales bringing average prices down?

A hand-selected panel of experts will discuss topical issues such as the current acquisition market stats, the timing of a potential market peak, the possibility of this bull market continuing for several more years, and what could be a triggering point to cause some changes in pricing and values. Panelists will also answer any pressing questions that the audience chooses to submit.

Speakers include: Daniel Bernstein, Senior Housing Equity Analyst, Stifel, Nicolaus & Co.; Alan Plush, Senior Partner, HealthTrust LLC; Matthew Whitlock, Senior Vice President, CBRE National Senior Housing Group. Stephen Monroe, Editor of The SeniorCare Investor, will moderate the webinar.
