MOB conference coming on April 17.

Medical office buildings are outperforming the overall office market, boasting higher rents and lower vacancy rates.

In other words, medical office buildings, or MOBs, comprise a very healthy asset class in the Denver area and in Colorado.

“The demand for medical office building space continues to expand in metro Denver by way of population growth, a rising older population and a greater portion of people with insurance,” according to a CBRE report.

Next month, the Colorado Real Estate Journal is sponsoring the largest health care/medical office building conference in the Rocky Mountain region.

The 2018 Health Care & Medical Office Buildings Conference & Expo will be held from  7 until 11:45 a.m. April 17 at the Hyatt Regency Aurora-Denver Conference Center and is expected to draw more than 350.

Panel members and speakers will address medical office building development, investments, leasing, construction and design.

For those who qualify, the conference provides four hours of continuing education credits.

The biggest challenge to the Denver area medical office building market may be its own success.

Lease rates are so high and vacancy so low that a lot of owners of MOBs don’t have much incentive to sell.

As the CBRE medical office building  report put it: “Owners are holding on tight to their prized assets, so a lack of available for-sale product could slow investment activity in 2018.”
