Expert Panel Scheduled to Discuss Current Healthcare Real Estate Market Environment

By: via PRWeb

Trends in medical office building cap rates, pricing, competition, capital, construction costs and more will be examined at InterFace Healthcare Real Estate in Dallas Sept. 14

MINNEAPOLIS and DALLAS (PRWEB) September 08, 2017

The only constant in healthcare real estate (HRE) is change, so it makes sense for HRE professionals to stay well informed about those changes and how they affect their organizations. Toward that end, the 9th annual InterFace Healthcare Real Estate Conference will be held Sept. 13-14 at the Westin Galleria Dallas to provide informative panel sessions and networking opportunities for industry leaders.

Kicking off the second day of the event, Murray Wolf, Publisher of Minneapolis-based Healthcare Real Estate Insights™ magazine, will moderate an expert panel titled “State of the Market: With ACA Reform/Repeal in the Rearview Mirror, What’s the Outlook for 2018 and Beyond?” The panel is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 14.

The panelists are scheduled to include:

  • Lee Asher, CBRE;
  • PJ Camp, Hammond Hanlon Camp;
  • Darryl Freling, MedProperties Holdings;
  • Dan Klein, Physicians Realty Trust; and
  • Danny Prosky, American healthcare Investors and Griffin-American Healthcare REIT III.

“Healthcare reform has been one of the most significant factors affecting the healthcare real estate space in recent years,” Mr. Wolf says. “Now, our panel at the InterFace Conference will help attendees to understand the immediate and potential impact of the recently stalled ‘repeal and replace’ efforts in Washington.

“We will also be addressing several of the other hottest topics in the HRE space.” Some of those include:

  • Medical office building (MOB) capitalizations rates, pricing and demand: Were recent large medical office building (MOB) portfolio acquisitions at sub-5 percent cap rates unique or are they a sign of a new, lower benchmark for MOB cap rates? Have MOB prices peaked? Is demand still strong despite regulatory uncertainty?
  • New players and new capital in the HRE space, including mainstream commercial real estate firms and foreign capital: Are capital sources new to the HRE space simply “kicking the tires” or actually investing? Are there enough operating partners and enough product to satisfy growing investor demand?
  • Rising construction costs: Construction costs have already been on the rise, squeezing already thin yield spreads for some new HRE developments. How will the sector manage through the additional construction cost increases likely to result from spiking demand in areas that have suffered recent hurricane damage?

“We have some significant opportunities and challenges to discuss, so I can’t wait to hear what our panel of experts has to say,” Mr. Wolf says. “It should be a compelling and informative session.”
