European care home investment volumes increase by 60%, says Savills

European care home investment volumes increase by 60%, says Savills

October 05, 2016

European care home investment volumes reached approximately €2.6 billion during the first half of 2016, which is 60% higher than the same period in 2015, according to research from Savills. The international real estate advisor notes that the strong activity levels so far in 2016, suggest that the full year investment figures could reach €3.5 billion in Europe, which would exceed the 2015 figure of €3 billion.  This increased appetite from investors has had an inevitable downward pressure on prime care home yields in Europe, which currently range between 4.4% and 7.5% depending on country, location and quality of asset. Savills expects these prime yields to harden further over the next 12 months as a result of continued competition for assets in the care home arena.
