Shlomi RonenThe senior housing market is seeing a boom. With the 65-plus demographic growing daily, many investors and developers are entering the senior housing space. While capital appetite for senior housing deals is healthy, senior housing is still considered a specialty market, and new entrants will have trouble landing capital sources.

“Capital availability is good. The caveat is that new entrants are going to have a relatively difficult time getting capitalized because of the nature of senior housing, especially when you get into the assisted living and memory care space, which is as much an operating business as it is a real estate business,” Shlomi Ronen managing principal at Dekel Capital, tells GlobeSt.com. “For those doing their first project, they are going to need to bring an existing equity relationship into the space or partner with someone that has experience on the operations side in senior housing.”
