Many investors are interested in senior care real estate these days. And why not? The demographic trend is obvious and the opportunities are exciting. Besides, investing in senior care real estate is a great way to provide a valuable service in a community while still generating good returns on your investment. There are at least four different ways you can invest in senior care real estate:
As an Owner/Operator. Purchase or develop a facility and manage yourself. You own the facility and you’re the boss. If you have experience in assisted living facility management, this may be the way to go. You keep all the profits but you also cover any losses, and day-to-day management is your responsibility. Senior Care Realty’s Brokerage Team can help you find an opportunity. If you choose to develop a new facility or purchase from another broker or seller, Senior Care Realty’s Acquisition and Development Team can guide you through the process.
Hire a Management Company. If you’re not looking for a job or responsibility for day-to-day operations, then hire a good management company to look after your facility. There are many high-quality property management companies that specialize in assisted living. And Senior Care Realty’s Property Management Team is available to cover your management needs.
Purchase a Net Leased Facility. Many management companies lease the facilities that they operate to maximize the use of their own capital, while investors hold the real estate. Leases are normally long-term and triple net. Senior Care Realty’s Brokerage Team normally has net leased facilities available for sale, and the company’s Management Team can provide asset management services to help monitor your investment and take care of the smallest details involved in ownership.
Joint Venture. Senior Care Realty forms partnerships and other arrangements to jointly own senior care real estate. Existing properties are purchased or new properties are developed. Joint ventures may be for single opportunities or individual assets, or they may involve a number of assets developed or acquired over a period of time. Properties available as joint ventures are generally those with substantial upside opportunity, or those with above normal cash flow opportunities.
