Senior Living Valuation Services, Inc. (SLVS) is a San Francisco, California based firm that provides appraisal and consulting services to the senior housing industry nationwide.


The firm was founded in 1991 by Michael Boehm MAI, CRE to focus on the specialized characteristics of senior housing properties. SLVS is dedicated to providing the highest quality appraisals and studies to lenders, owners, operators, investors and other appraisers involved in the senior housing industry.

Senior housing emerged as one of the most active and potentially lucrative forms of real estate development in the mid-1980's. As the market has become more saturated and fragmented, successful financing, development and analysis requires an understanding that the senior housing market is not monolithic.

Because the senior population and their housing options are not homogenous, lenders, owners, operators and investors need a detailed knowledge of specific markets and property types. This requires the preparation of a focused and well documented appraisal and market analysis by an experienced and credible analyst.
