There are a number of variables that impact capitalization rates. Sellers always ask, “What capitalization rates are you seeing out there?” There is no easy answer.

Some of the blockbuster, portfolio deals that have been announced for 6% – 8% capitalization rates don’t tell the whole story. Was occupancy at 85% – 88% with a real, stabilized capitalization rate closer to 9%? Did the operator use a REIT and put some equity into the deal above and beyond the reported price the REIT paid, resulting in an overall higher capitalization rate?

It is dangerous to apply publicly announced capitalization rates to your operation as a means to determine value. To determine value, you need to consider age, location, condition, occupancy, payor type/rates, demographics, future upside, etc.
