Memory Care & Assisted Living Facilities In Loan Portfolio Sales with David Tobin | Principal [Video]

David Tobin, Principal, chats about loan portfolios secured by memory care and assisted living facilities.

In light of the recent termination of Silverado by the Welltower REIT of 20 properties that are standalone memory care facilities, it’s incumbent upon regional, super regional and large community banks to examine their memory care and assisted living loan portfolios and understand the risk embedded in those deals.

In particular, standalone, private-pay, assisted-living and memory care facilities in over-billed markets are particularly prone to default and credit stress. One of the factors contributing to this is the fact that Baby Boom has not caught up with the demand for memory care services as the height peak Baby Boom population is moving through its early to mid-sixties, and memory care demand does not occur until late seventies and early eighties.

Banks should take this opportunity and a highly liquid marketplace to shed assets, which have a higher propensity to default or which have already defaulted. The opportunity to exit portfolios of assisted living and memory care assets is in the marketplace today, and an opportunity may not exist tomorrow.
