Why the seniors housing sector? Many investors are eager to find the right entry point into this sector. It’s easy to understand why. According to the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care (NIC), the total value of the investment-grade seniors housing and care property market is already an estimated $372 billion. That figure is expected to grow as the size of the US population over the age of 80 is forecast to increase dramatically.

The combined components of real estate, hospitality, and needs-driven service make seniors housing a unique asset class that offers both growth potential and resilience.


Over the past 10 years, the nominal returns on the seniors housing properties within the dataset managed by the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries, or NCREIF, have significantly outperformed the broader NCREIF Property Index. As of Q1 2017, seniors housing properties have generated an annualized rate of return of 11.1% since Q1 2007 compared to an annualized return of 6.7% for the index as a whole.
