How Did CCRCs and Non-CCRCs Compare as of Q3 2019?
Essentially, CCRCs had higher occupancy, higher rent growth and lower inventory growth than non-CCRCs as of Q3 2019.
Higher Occupancy at CCRCs
Why was CCRC occupancy higher? Potential reasons could be the higher inventory growth at non-CCRCs, lower turnover at CCRCs, characteristics of CCRC customers / new residents, and relative performance of the majority unit mix.
How exactly did inventory growth and occupancy at CCRCs and non-CCRCs compare over a three year period?
Memory care at CCRCs showed the strongest occupancy gain (2.3%), followed by independent living (0.7%), assisted living (0.3%) and nursing care (0.1%).
Independent living at non-CCRCs showed the strongest occupancy change (which was -3.0%), followed by assisted living (-2.6%), memory care (-1.1%) and nursing care (-0.3%).
