Survey highlights

The seniors housing market is maturing, and more investors than ever view seniors housing as an asset class that they need to have in their portfolios. JLL surveyed nearly 250 developers, operators and lenders across the U.S. to identify their most desired subsectors, new investment strategies and go-forward expectations.


The most desirable subsector offers a continuum of care including independent living and assisted living, but without nursing care. The seniors-only apartment space is an emerging subsector


Seniors housing occupancy holds steady; rent growth decelerates but continues on an upward trend


Emerging trends with the most staying power are the shift from single-level-of-care facilities to continuum-of-care facilities and the focus on urban infill locations


The biggest risk factors are overbuilding, rising labor costs and the increasing challenge of attracting and retaining qualified staff

Which sector do you see as the biggest opportunity for investment in 2018?

A majority of our survey respondents ranked independent and assisted living facilities as an extremely favorable investment. Meanwhile, nursing care investment as voted the least desirable.
