Annapolis, Md. – Real Capital Analytics (RCA), a global commercial real estate research firm and the National Investment Center for the Seniors Housing & Care Industry (NIC), a leading industry resource for seniors housing, announce the release of their co-branded report. The RCA-NIC Seniors Housing & Care U.S. Quarterly Report 2Q2011 delivers national trend data beginning in 1Q2008 and provides details on most seniors housing and care transactions that closed in the first half of 2011. The foundation of the report is a strategic alliance between RCA and NIC and a jointly developed database aimed at increasing property valuation and pricing transparency in the seniors housing and care sector.

“For the twelve months ending June 30, 2011 the seniors housing and care market produced its highest ever transaction volume, posting nearly $20 billion in closed deals. The spectacular amount of transaction activity continues to generate interest and accelerate the sector’s advancement as a commercial real estate class in its own right,” said RCA Founder and President Bob White.

Those active or considering investing in the rapidly growing seniors housing and care sector demand data at the level of detail and scope of coverage available to other commercial real estate property types. The RCA-NIC Seniors Housing & Care U.S. Quarterly Report provides unbiased and comprehensive information to monitor sales, track pricing, gather competitive information and identify market trends, including:

  • investment trend activity,
  • market fundamentals,
  • top buyers and top sellers; pinpointing dealmakers,
  • specific details for most transactions.

The firms’ alliance, database and co-branded quarterly report have been nearly three years in the making and emphasize the commitment of RCA and NIC to provide quantitative data, drive transparency and facilitate investment decisions. “RCA and NIC MAP subscribers now have enhanced access to comprehensive time series data including sales transactions and market fundamentals detailing the trends within the seniors housing and care property market,” said NIC’s President Robert Kramer. “Our alliance with RCA is designed to keep those interested in seniors housing and care up to date with property pricing and valuation trends.”
