Key Factors Affecting Valuation for Senior Apartments
The value of senior apartments is estimated relative to traditional apartments in 34 US markets. In some markets, senior apartments transact at higher prices than predicted; in others, a discount. Market differences in the valuation of senior apartments are examined, and several attributes are found to have a significant impact and become capitalized into differential values for senior apartments including: the supply of apartments per senior resident, housing prices, market size, education, and life expectancy. Other variables appear to have no effect, including rent and income, suggesting that the price impact is symmetrical for senior and traditional apartments.
