Before opening or expanding into a market, providers and developers must look carefully at the data trends in their target market. This quarter, we offer overviews of the two Midwestern and two Southeastern metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs):

  • Ann Arbor, Michigan
  • Atlanta, Georgia
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • Orlando, Florida

Highlights from our Senior Living Market Snapshot reports

Senior living trends in occupancy, inventory growth, and construction can help inform expansion or repositioning decisions. Here’s a sneak peek of these data trends from our Market Snapshot reports:

  • Independent living and assisted living occupancy in the Ann Arbor and Chicago MSAs has dropped recently.
  • Except for improved assisted living occupancy in the Orlando MSA, the Atlanta and Orlando MSAs show slightly lower or stable occupancy for independent living and assisted living in their markets.
  • Independent living and assisted living absorption, inventory growth, and construction figures are high in the Chicago and Atlanta MSAs. Senior living communities considering construction should have a market study conducted to determine what kinds of units can be supported.
  • Independent living and assisted living absorption was negative in the Ann Arbor MSA, which also shows no construction or inventory growth.
  • The Orlando MSA saw a drop in all of its independent living figures; its assisted living absorption increased even with negative inventory growth this quarter.
  • Chicago and Atlanta are the top MSAs for most units under construction in their respective regions.
