NIC is pleased to welcome you to the new look and feel of our blog, which up until a week ago was titled NIC CARES. The old blog, which was designed and launched back in March 2015, was, according to our marketing vendor, in need of an update. We’re excited to have launched the new platform over the July 4th holiday, with no major bugs or any complaints – but, of course, will be looking for any feedback from our subscribers and readers.
Seniors housing isn’t quite like other commercial real estate investments. Returns and valuations can be significantly influenced by operational performance which makes acquisition and investment decisions complex. Professionals new to the industry can find underwriting a deal difficult and challenging.
One of the most talked-about sessions at the recent 2019 NIC Spring Conference was the “Boomer Hackathon,” in which three teams – and those in attendance – brainstormed innovations in seniors housing appropriate for incoming Baby Boomers. A standing-room-only crowd participated in the event, forming small groups to attack the same problem as three teams of experts, who were formed ahead of time.
Focused on transformational change and increased collaboration, the annual event brought together more than 1,700 seniors housing and care executives – and a growing number of healthcare players - in San Diego, February 20-22.
