Retirement Home Assessments

Assessment approach

We use what's called the "direct capitalization approach" to estimate a current value for retirement homes. To use this method, we:

  1. Estimate the annual revenue that can be generated by the home.
  2. Deduct the annual expenses that are necessary to support the revenue stream.
  3. Apply a capitalization rate (cap rate) to the retirement home's net income.
