Why complete a feasibility study for senior housing projects?
A market feasibility study is designed to assist internal decision making for a property as well as a presentation for other potential operators and financial partners. For many investors, the combined components of real estate and hospitality give senior housing and care properties a unique resiliency, offering the benefits of real estate investment along with the strength of the healthcare field.
About Our Detailed Feasibility Studies
Feasibility studies conducted by Nielson Financial consist of a multi-phase research program that looks in detail at key factors that will help your company determine if your senior living project is feasible within the primary market area.
First, we create a list of all current senior living facilities in the PMA (primary market area). The compiled list includes research from the state website, hospital discharge planning, and internet research. After we have our complete list, we verify information about each facility including (units, occupancy percentages, rates, amenities, the age of the facility, appearance of the facility, etc.). This gives us our list of comparable properties “comps”.
Next, we create a demographic profile of the residents within the PMA (both total residents, and age- and income-qualified residents). The demographic profile and the list of senior living facilities are used to calculate different penetration rates. The rates are compared to both national and regional averages to determine feasibility.
Key functions of a feasibility study performed for assisted living, independent living or skilled nursing development include:
- Conducting Detailed Market Analysis
- Senior Living Supply-Demand Forecasts
- Senior Living Market Research
- Senior Housing Regional Analysis
- Competitive Market Analysis
- Defining Primary Market Area (PMA)
- Supply Analysis for Primary Market Area (PMA)
- Demand Analysis for Primary Market Area (PMA)
- Penetration Analysis for Primary Market Area (PMA)
Your company will have the option to customize your feasibility studies to the level of detail needed for your project. A detailed feasibility study usually takes between four to six weeks to conduct. We can also add additional layers of depth to your study by conducting project timelines, revenue projections, profit and loss projections, proformas, staffing costs, etc.
