As we turn our gaze to 2012, here is some good news I have to share. An analysis by Jones Lang LaSalle concluded that healthcare real estate will continue to be a strong investment category in 2012. “While no asset class can be considered recession-proof, based on past performance and future projections, healthcare real estate is about as recession resistant as possible which makes it a preferred class today”.
Though many healthcare professionals are in a holding pattern because of the uncertainties in national reforms yet to unfold, my bet is that we will continue to see merger and acquisition activity. We could also see inventories being reevaluated and investment options growing. Stayed tuned. And buckle your seat belts.
