Senior Housing and Assisted Living Investors

The most important question to ask when considering investing in seniors housing and assisted living in 2024 is:

“What are the current and projected demographic trends, and how do they align with the current and future location and services of the seniors housing and assisted living facilities?”

Interesting Facts

There are several reasons why you should consider investing in senior housing.
    • The demand for senior housing is growing. The average annual population growth in the 80-year-old plus cohort will be between 700,000 and 800,000 by 2030, a more than 24% growth rate. Fueling that is the leading edge of baby boomers who turn 80 in 2026. They estimate about 18 million of 65-plus aged population increase between 2010 and 2030. The 65-year-olds are estimated to live an additional 20 years. And yet, there’s not enough senior housing. U.S. construction starts are at their lowest since 2009.
    • Senior housing is a recession-resistant investment. During economic downturns, people often choose to downsize their homes and move into senior housing. This is because senior housing can provide a more affordable and convenient option for seniors who are no longer able to live independently.
    • Senior housing is a needs-based investment. The demand for senior housing is not dependent on economic conditions. Seniors will always need housing, regardless of the state of the economy. This makes senior housing a more stable investment than other types of real estate.
    • The returns on senior housing investments can be attractive. The returns on senior housing investments can be attractive, especially in the long term. According to a 2019 report by the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care, the average annual return on senior housing investments over the past 10 years was 11.4%.

State of the Senior Housing Industry

Welcome to the thriving world of the senior housing industry! As a senior care investor, you have the incredible advantage of riding the wave of a massive demographic groundswell. The growth in the senior population is truly overwhelming, and the best part is that the new supply growth in the senior housing market has remained well below the peaks seen in 2006 and early 2008. On top of that, stabilized occupancy rates have been consistently on the rise.

At Haven Senior Investments (HSI), we firmly believe that from 2023-2040 the acquisition, renovation, and development of senior housing and assisted living facilities present one of the most exceptional risk-adjusted opportunities in both commercial real estate and general domestic investment. It’s an industry that holds immense potential for those who are willing to take an active and passive investment role. Please be aware that it stands apart from more conventional forms of real estate due to its unique operational complexity and rigorous regulatory requirements.
