    MOB Q2 Sales Drop 29 Percent From a Year Ago…But Sales Still Have a Chance to Top $10 Billion in 2019

    There’s plenty of talk in the medical office building (MOB) sales sector that even though demand remains as high as ever for the product type, the volume has been quiet so far in 2019.

You see them pop up in your email or news feed: "Sales volume is at all time highs"..... "New investors are entering the sector right and left"...."Medical Real Estate Hitting Post Recession Peak". At times like this, many investors are getting priced out of the 'cream' offerings that trade and the heavy weight health system construction projects. So it would stand to reason that those interested parties would look elsewhere....and they are.

    Developer Sales of MOBs are Highly Valued, But Somewhat Rare

    What do large, institutional MOB investors look for when seeking purchases? For the most part, they prefer larger portfolios in order to add instant scale. They prefer properties occupied by strong, perhaps credit-rated, health systems. And, they want high quality real estate: well-maintained, perhaps newer buildings in good locations.
