Investor Competition Intensifies for Medical Office Properties

 National Real Estate Investor – October 5, 2015 

Demand for stabilized medical office buildings (MOBs) and new development is on an upswing, according to market experts, with cap rates matching pre-recession record levels.

The average cap rate for performing MOBs declined to 6.5 percent in the first half of 2015, almost reaching the record low of 6.2 percent achieved in the third quarter of 2007, according to a recent report from health care advisor firm Brown Gibbons Lang Real Estate Partners. Vacancy in the MOB sector has dropped to 10.9 percent, one of the lowest rates of any commercial property type.
