Seniors Housing Returns Outpace NPI

By: Beth Mace  |  December 02, 2015

Returns Strong. Third-quarter return performance data for the NCREIF-reported seniors housing properties was strong. Total returns equaled 4.20%, composed of a 2.80% capital return and a 1.39% income return. On a one-year basis, total returns were an impressive 16.32%, overshadowing NPI’s strong results (13.48%) as well as those for apartments (12.02%). Income returns for seniors housing are consistently strong, reflecting steady and reliable NOI growth in the sector, while strong capital flows and avid investor interest support capital returns for the sector. On a 10-year basis, total returns for seniors housing exceeded both the NPI and apartments by roughly 550 basis points. These performance measurements reflect the returns of seven managers, who reported $3.2 billion of seniors housing performance data on stabilized properties to NCREIF in the third quarter.

Boomers want to remain independent to make their own decisions, to live in a cross generational authentic community where their contributions are valued. In stark contrast, the previous generation is seemingly content living comfortably in a community with others in their age cohort, where meals and daily activities are pre-planned.
