Interest rates do effect it, however Healthcare REIT are one of the better ones to invest in. I am still wary because rates are going up and real estate is slowing more in the housing sector though.
This not housing. This is health care. You need it or you dont. Competition, care, costs location are more important. Increased interest may be a factor. However much of the cost of this service is government they often increase payment with increase in interest - maybe slowly.
