COVID-19 has changed Germany and the entire world. Since the beginning of 2020, we have been experiencing the economic and also the social consequences of the pandemic. It quickly became clear that the over-65 age groups have the highest mortality risk. Residents of care homes therefore require collective protection. In this report, we analyse the care sector, look at current market data and analyse the industry, also with the help of our new care barometer. In doing so, we also repeatedly take a look at the effects of the pandemic on the sector.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare real estate is once again becoming a crisis-proof investment for investors. The H1 2021 investment volume of 920 million euros was limited only by the acute lack of product. In 2020, the prime yield for nursing care real estate transactions was again undercut and reached the 4.0 per cent mark. We expect this to compress even further in 2021.
Focus of the report:
- Inpatient, outpatient or hybrid care models - Where is the market heading?
- Alternative forms of care and living - How can independence and self-determination in old age be promoted?
- Living independently for longer - What does this mean for provision of intensive care services at home?
- ESG criteria in care real estate - what do experts say about sustainability in this asset class?
