Key Takeaways from the Q1 2023 Issue:

Medical Office
• MOB sales totaled $1.7 billion in Q1 2023, a 74% decrease from $6.4 billion of transaction volume in Q1 2022, the lowest first quarter for medical office sales in the last nine years. The decline in overall transaction volume was concentrated in portfolio activity, portfolio transaction volume dropped $1.0B, while individual transaction volume dropped $700M. Market fundamentals remain stable as occupancy, retention rates, and market rent growth continue to point to the resiliency of the medical office sector.

Life Sciences
• The lab/R&D vacancy rate increased by 132 basis points (bps) quarter-over-quarter and 170 bps year-over-year to 6.7% as the record post-pandemic demand appears to have subsided. However, the vacancy rate remains well below years past with demand for life science space expected to remain robust.
• Venture capital funding to the life science industry fell to $3.6 billion in Q1 2023, below the previous quarter but on par with pre-pandemic 2019 levels. While venture capital investors are becoming more selective, sectors such as novel research continue to draw record financial backing.

• Despite notable failures, banks remained the top lending group in Q1 2023 with 41.4% share of non-agency loan volume, down from 58% in Q4 2022. About one-third of these loans were for construction projects while the remainder was split between acquisition loans and refinancing. Most local and regional banks continue to include deposit requests in their quote sheets in response to collapse of several banks over the last few months.
