JLL Retirement Living Market Research (2020)
By 2025, 20% of the UK population will be over million people) with The over 65s own a combined £800 billion of housing equity.
Many retirees want to live in retirement housing, but there is a chronic under-supply of high quality Housing with Care in the right locations. Recent mid to high end schemes being developed across the UK are being fully sold off-plan, with long waiting lists for existing schemes.
In the UK the vast majority of over 65s currently live in the mainstream housing market. Only 0.6% of retirees live in Housing with Care, which is ten times less than in more mature retirement housing markets such as the USA and Australia, where over 5% of over 65s live in Housing with Care.
Almost 80% of the over 65 population would be classified as being within mid and high end affluence by 2025, whilst 75% of the current Housing with Care stock is classified as affordable, highlighting the supply-demand imbalance in the current market.
It is estimated that there is a potential requirement for an additional 725,000 Housing with Care units by 2025 which would equate to nearly 50% of all new homes built at the current rate.
The Care Act 2014 places housing at the heart of the definition of wellbeing and forces local authorities to be proactive in shaping and developing the market, particularly in alternatives to institutional care such as Housing with Care. It forces engagement with the market to ensure there is sufficient variety and supply of accommodation to match the local population and will ease the passage of planning for schemes.
Knight Frank, The Investment Case for Senior Housing (2020)
Analysis of the supply pipeline suggests that nearly 11,500 units (Senior Living) were due to be delivered this year (2020), increasing year on year to a total of just below 70,000 by 2023. However, a hiatus in construction activity with restrictions on access to development sites with Covid-19 restrictions, will apply further pressure on what is already widely regarded to be an undersupplied market.
