Retirement Home Investment Opportunity

The opportunity for investors to earn money are varied especially when you take a look at the retirement home investment opportunity sector of the property market. We are currently seeing a growing number of investors approach the sector with a view to generating medium to long term profit on investment. Knight Frank have said that if the current curve continues, the UK retirement home supply is expected to fall from 456,400 beds to 444,700, while the population over the age of 65 is due to rise by 1 million from 11.4 million, this is the recipe for creating an acute shortage of beds by the year 2020.

The lack of care home facilities has created a situation which ultimately will need to be addressed and this is why we are looking at retirement home investment opportunities with our investors. Knight Frank are suggesting that 6,000 new beds are needed per year, but unfortunately, we are going the other way with care homes closing due to lack of investment. Many care home providers are struggling to find reasons to invest and refurbish their existing rooms due to their less desirability as many of these homes are quite older buildings with less than adequate facilities for the number of occupants and this in turn results in occupancy levels falling as people seek more up to date and more modern care in their later years.

In recent times, the case for elderly care has effectively created what some would view as a two-tier system with a vast difference between the performance of retirement home providers who are providing for privately funded residents versus those who rely on local authority funding.

We regularly see media coverage which is predominantly focussed on the struggles of retirement home operators who are catering for their residents who receive funding from the local authorities, when we see the reduction in funding from the authorities it makes it very difficult for the care home owners to provide the level of expected service.

The privately funded care homes are doing very well, these are mainly in affluent areas of the United Kingdom, areas such as the South East and South West of England.

Retirement Home Investment Opportunity

It is said that 1/3 of property wealth in the United Kingdom is now under the control of households where at least 1 of the occupiers is aged 65 and above. Drilling into the numbers even further, nearly 1 in 10 of those aged 55 to 64 are living in a household with a net property wealth of +£500,000.

The “Grey Pound” now accounts for some 76% of financial wealth in the United Kingdom and it is said they have the willingness to spend. The life expectancy of this age group is increasing year on year at a startling rate. Those that are in retirement are said to have modest incomes along with relatively high assets which ultimately translates into higher feelings of prosperity.

When the moment comes for an individual or a couple to consider the need for a retirement home, it is very clear that they are shying away from the traditional and more institutional home that their parents may have previous occupied as it does not meet their requirements. instead they are turning to their assets to funder a higher quality of care rather than that which is offered by the state.

Investing in Residential Care Homes

We are typically looking at developments that are from Victorian period properties in which they have managed to keep their original features along with generous room sizes. Often they will have operated as care homes for many years and with that there is an amazing opportunity for private financing to come in and redevelop some of this dilapidated stock and help to bridge the gap between supply and demand.

An extensive survey is done on each property along with the production of a feasibility report. This will ensure that the property is in a good position as to whether or not it is the right property to generate an income from. The typical size of the retirement home is 15 to 30 rooms and they are in areas that have a high retired population within an affluent area.

The retirement home is then renovated to a very high standard over a period of 4 to 6 months. Following the redevelopment, the retirement home is then reopened offering a luxury home from home to fee paying residents. When buying up existing retirement homes, there is often very little needed in terms of planning applications as it is normally simply a case of the property having a full refit as opposed to actual construction work.

When a retirement home is identified as prime for investment, a marketing strategy is developed with a unique focus to said property in order to build awareness and interest from those in the local area. Making use of modern marketing techniques and all round good PR, it allows for the full potential of the property to be fulfilled by having the right target audience learn about the offering.

Investing in Nursing Homes

Step 1: Due Diligence

The company identifies suitable properties in affluent towns and regions. The company undertakes constant monitoring of the care market and the availability of suitable properties and ensures that full commercial, technical and financial due diligence takes place on all potential properties.

Step 2: Purchase

Following a satisfactory outcome of due diligence, and provided sufficient funds are available, investment monies are used to acquire the property.

Step 3: Development

The properties are renovated into 5-star luxury care accommodation using permitted development rights where possible or the equivalent full planning requirements. The potential for extension works to existing properties and/or the construction of new build facilities to increase the number of care studios is always explored.

Step 4: Operation, sales and lettings

Upon completion of works the property is registered (or re-registered, as appropriate) with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for the provision of residential, nursing and domiciliary care services. Comprehensive regional marketing and sales campaigns are then launched to secure sales and lettings on individual care studios and achieve/maintain target occupancy levels.

You have the opportunity to purchase a care studio within a care home on an 125 year leasehold basis. The care studio will then be managed for you and in return you will receive a fixed income. More information about our retirement home investment opportunity is available upon request.

With the number of people approaching retirement age on the increase in the UK and growing in the foreseeable future, there in which is an opportunity for property developers to do their bit and bring more nursing home investment opportunities to the table. We have identified a fantastic opportunity for investors within this in-demand segment of the UK property market and we are delighted to share with you our research.

The number of individuals aged 85 and above is expected to grow by more than 100% in the coming years which is extremely concerning when you consider the number of beds are currently on the decline due to lack of investment in the sector.

Invest in Elderly Care

The opportunity to invest in elderly care is one which is of great attraction to prospective investors, there are some great developers that we are in partnership with such as The Care Home Group, who are acquiring properties that are in need of renovation, however, the key to making this work is to truly do a fantastic job in delivering a facility which will stand the test of time and will ultimately keep residents wanting to live out the latter years of their life at the facility.

The Care Home Group will then operate the care home using their own end user service called Caring Communities. This company is all about providing a quality of care which is to a 5 star standard, the key is to attract the higher end of the market with regards to residential care services.

The elderly care model generates revenue through the sale of rooms within the care home and then renting them to permanent residents. In addition to the sale of the care rooms there is a premium service being provided, and naturally there is a fee to be charged to residents whom desire the top level care within a top of the range care home. The Care Home Group is all about identifying care home investment opportunities in affluent areas of the United Kingdom and then repackaging it all to a service that is of an extremely high level and that which residents aged over 65 + would be looking to self fund.

Nursing Home Investments

There has always been an interest in nursing home investments from investors that we come into contact with. We are finding a surge in interest particularly of late due to the dire situation in terms of the diminishing number of available care beds to those in need. The plan of The Care Home Group is to carry on with the acquisition plan of procuring care homes throughout the UK and always to focus on the service to the end user. There are a couple of ways in which investors are able to receive their rental income from such investment.

You could opt to have your income direct from the actual resident, much the same as an actual buy-to-let works, whilst this option would offer you a higher return on your investment, it would be variable depending on occupancy.

Alternatively, and by far the most popular option, you could take up the managed option which would see you earn a fixed income regardless of occupancy.

Investors from all over the world have developed an understanding of the UK property markets. Whilst the majority of the UK market is somewhat of a challenge when it comes to identifying positive opportunities, there is a great deal of interest in nursing home investments for the very reason that there is so much potential going forward.

The homes on offer within our care home investment are simply about providing luxury homes for the elderly with superb interiors and the very best in home-cooked dining and care every single minute of the day. It is a very high standard to live up to, but the delivery of a service with a smile is what makes all the difference to residents within the nursing home.

Care Home Investment UK


FJP Investment is very much about finding profitable investment opportunities for our global audience of investors. The care home investment sector in the UK is rapidly increasing in popularity with traditional property investors. With industry leaders clearly identifying a sever shortfall in the number of available care beds by the year 2020, there is no doubt that investing in a care home is a smart move, considering the incoming demand from prospective residents.

Nursing Home Investment Opportunities

With the number of people aged over 65 now over the 10 million mark for the first time, we are in a situation where the elderly now outnumber those who are under 16. In fact it is those aged 85 or more that are the fastest growing demographic within the United Kingdom and this is all down to the vastly improved health and preventative care on offer. With that we have complications of a system which needs to adjust in order to keep up with the demand, over the next 20 years, we are expecting more people to live longer and this will place even more pressure and this is why nursing home investment opportunities are needed more than ever.

We are also seeing an increasing demand for specialist care such as dementia, another area The Care Home Group specialises in. There is estimated to be at least 800,000 people in the United Kingdom who are currently living with dementia, this figure is predicted to hit 1 million by 2021 and then double by the year 2050, they also need care in their later years which at present is just not available.

The need is more than clear – further information about care home investments is available upon request.

How does a care home investment work?

With so many properties vacant or in need of investment, it is still very much a case of having the pick of the bunch. The Care Home Group will conduct extensive surveys and feasibility studies to ensure each development is of solid overall construction and of course suitable for the formula of redevelopment and remodelling, the typical care facility will be of at least 20 beds of above average sizes.

Market research is essential to ensure the properties are in areas that consist of a high proportion of retired and retirees.

Each care home is then renovated to 5-star luxury standard over a period typically a six months before opening to the public under the CQC* registered company called Caring Communities. *(Care Quality Commission the regulator of health and social services in England)

You purchase the care studio on a 125-year leasehold with the care home at below market value. You then receive an income on a buy-to-let basis.

As an investor you will receive a full and legal title deed which means the property is registered in your name at the Land Registry.

The funds that you are investing are used to purchase and refurbish the property as well as maintaining the premium standard of care to deliver a premium service to residents.

The income is paid monthly and is fixed at 10% net yield per annum.
