SENIOR HOUSING INVESTMENTS
As the U.S. population ages, Baby Boomers are driving the demand for newer and more creative senior housing alternatives. In recent years, this specialty niche of senior housing has grown and expanded into the mainstream of commercial real estate. Both independent and institutional investors have turned to the senior housing industry in search of higher investment returns and better yields. In the past 15 years, the senior housing market has outperformed every other real estate sector.
The demand for senior housing is growing exponentially, and it is estimated that you 2030, approximately 21% of the U.S. population will be 65 and older as the tail end of the Baby Boomers reaches seniority. The burgeoning demand and the surprising resiliency of this type of investment spurs increasing new development across this sector.
The senior housing industry has even weathered the Great Economic Recession of 2008 with fewer occupancy swings than other real estate sectors.
NIC, or, National Investment Center, interprets data and analyzes trends in the senior housing and care sector as they relate to and affect capital seekers (owners and operators) and capital providers. Their goal is to improve transparency and understanding of the senior housing market in order to increase the flow of capital into this sector and lower its costs to effectively generate quality housing options and outcomes for seniors.
Senior housing has increasingly drawn the attention of investors because of the sector’s strong investment performance returns. Senior housing includes Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Skilled Nursing. Assisted Living also includes memory care. Strong acquisition demand for senior housing and care properties continues to push prices to the highest levels ever.
