Elderly Care Real Estate Scorecard

Tom Robinson • 18/01/2024

The Elderly Care Scorecard offers an in-depth examination of various key aspects of elderly care real estate, including investment volumes, major transactions, and investment yields on a quarter by quarter basis. 
From an operational perspective, the scorecard dives into crucial areas such as average weekly fees by region, occupancy levels, cost pressures and EBITDARM outcomes through the lens of Cushman & Wakefield's unique asset-grade slices. 

Key Takeaways: 

  • 2023 investment in the elderly care sector closed at £1.25bn, falling short of the £2bn of 2022; 
  • Q4 2023 saw an uptick in overall volume, but unusually no traditional long income deals closed;  
  • Prime and Prime SPV Yields have softened, up 0.25%; 
  • Secondary assets remain active with pricing highly sensitive to income security;  
  • Pricing outlook appears positive, pegged by underlying trade growth; 
  • OpCo appetite for portfolio opportunities gaining traction, potentially unlocking many exit scenarios; 
  • 1/3 of all volume came from general investors, vs 10% in 2022; 
  • Average weekly fees in Grade A care homes are up c.10% vs 2022; 
  • EBITDARM margins now on par with pre-COVID performance, with potential for growth as inflation comes under control.
