IHT Realty Crowdfunding has rebranded itself as RealtyeVest.
Assisted living has recently become a desirable asset for many new and experienced investors.
With waves of Baby Boomers reaching retirement, assisted living is rapidly moving into the spotlight of real estate investing.
It’s no surprise that the target demographic for the business platform has grown exponentially, with more than 10,000 Baby Boomers hitting 65 every day until 2030, according to a study by The Pew Research Center.
The study found that 76 million people were born in the U.S. between 1946 and 1964. If you factor in the influx of immigrants and the amount of people who passed away during that same period, there are about 79.6 million seniors in the United States. If you divide that number by 19 years and then again by 365 days, you’ll find there are about 11,476 Boomers turning 65 each day.
All the same, over the next 20 years, the amount of seniors moving into assisted living homes is projected to rise. This is expected to increase demand for assisted living services and facilities, and provide an exciting opportunity for entrepreneurs and on-trend investors.
In a blog post on Tony Robbins’ website, Ajay Gupta, Robbins’ personal advisor, lists senior housing as the No.2 safest place to invest right now — “meaning they’re not as susceptible to the fluctuations in economic conditions,” Gupta said.
“We are currently facing the largest demographic shift we’ve ever seen — a tidal wave of demographic inevitability as Baby Boomers reach their Golden Years,” the article said.
Today, there are 45 million Americans that are 65 years or older — a number that is projected to grow to 80 million over the next 25 years. And with life expectancy continuing to increase, seniors will have to decide where to spend their remaining twenty or more years.
“It doesn’t matter if interest rates go up or down, it doesn’t matter who the President of the United States is, or what is happening in China or Greece; every single day, 12,000 Americans are turning 65 years old,” Gupta said. “So, if you can own real estate that is catering towards this demographic, you are almost guaranteed (high) occupancy over the next 25 years.”
