As the assisted living segment emerged from the Great Recession 10 years ago, it soon became apparent that as a separate “real estate” class, it outperformed most every other type of real estate during and after the economic downturn. It soon became known as being “recession-resistant.” It was need-driven, so no matter what happened to the economy, demand would be there because there just were not many other realistic options. Occupancy levels bottomed out at the end of the last decade after suffering through a period of over-development, but acquisition prices soared, hitting new records in 2019. Investment demand was at historic levels. Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, with the full extent of the economic fall-out still not known. Assisted living was recession-resistant for one recession, and one type of recession. The looming recession could dwarf the Great Recession in its economic impact, but we do not know what will happen to assisted living values. Assisted living has been the fastest growing and most successful senior living property type for the past 25 years, and for good reason.


In this webinar, you will find out:

  • What made assisted living recession resistant 10 years ago, and what has changed today
  • How the recent period of overdevelopment impacted the ability to be recession resistant
  • What the most important characteristics of recession-resistant properties are: location, price point, management?
  • What the impact of an economic downturn combined with the pandemic will be on assisted living values
  • How quickly the market will be able to recover, and why
  • The impact slowing development will have on assisted living values

Assisted living has been one of the most successful components of the senior living spectrum, providing investors with above-market returns. It is need-driven, and over the past 20 years, it has taken care of an increasingly frail population. Join us in this webcast as we try to figure out what will happen to assisted living values in the near term, and whether assisted living will yet again resist the negative impacts of another economic downturn, and how you can profit from it.
