U.S. medical real estate sales transactions totaled more than $11.3 billion in 2014, according to an exclusive new report now available only from Revista.

The Annapolis-based healthcare real estate (HRE) data firm also announced that it has five new board members and two new Gold-Level Partners: Harrison Street Real Estate Capital and Zeustra Real Estate Investment Services.

MOB transactions still going strong, yields compressed, prices per square foot largely unchanged

“Hospitals, health systems, physician practice groups and healthcare real estate professionals now have a comprehensive new tool for tracking and analyzing the medical real estate transactions market,” says Mike Hargrave, one of Revista’s founding principals.

Available exclusively from Revista, the “Medical Real Estate Transactions Report” for 2014 includes not only all medical office buildings (MOBs) sales, but also real estate transactions involving hospitals, medical condos, office with medical, and retail with medical. Revista captured data for sales of well-qualified properties with reported square foot information and pricing of more than $2 million.

“Medical office building sales continued to dominate the market,” Mr. Hargrave noted, adding that Revista identified 518 MOB sales totaling more than $7.1 billion, accounting for 63 percent of the dollar volume, followed by hospitals (18 percent) and other medical (19 percent).

The Revista “Medical Real Estate Transactions Report” also found:

  • On average, MOB yields compressed from 7.0 percent the beginning of 2014 to 6.6 percent by the end of the year, with an overall average of 6.8 percent. On-campus MOBs had the lowest average yield (6.3 percent) while unaffiliated and off-campus MOBs had the highest (7.0 percent).
  • Hospital and MOB prices per square foot (PSF) were generally trendless during 2014, with hospital sale prices averaging $397 PSF and MOB sales prices averaging $291 PSF.
  • The largest MOB buyer by volume was NorthStar Healthcare REIT, by virtue of its December 2014 purchase of Griffin-American Healthcare REIT II.
  • California, the most populous state, had the highest MOB sales volume, with just under $933 million, at an average PSF for MOBs of $366.

The Revista report also reflects key trends for MOBs by type (all MOBs, on-campus, affiliated and non-affiliated); key MOB statistics by investor type (Hospital/Health System, Private Investor, Provider Groups and REITs); the top 10 MOB Buyers; top 10 MOB states; and top 10 metro areas for MOB sales.
