CBRE: Investors Poised to Allocate More to Healthcare Real Estate
Investors plan to allocate more capital to healthcare real estate in 2022, amid rising confidence in life sciences real estate, medical office buildings, and ambulatory service centers, according to a new CBRE survey.
The CBRE survey found that most investors (85%) believe healthcare real estate is recession resistant, up from 80% in 2021, and 84% plan to be net buyers this year. In 2022, investors have allocated 57% more capital to healthcare real estate than in 2021, with CBRE estimating $25 billion in equity will be deployed this year.
“Healthcare and life sciences have been historically resistant to economic downturns and continues to be seen as a safe-haven for real estate investors during times of economic distress,” said Chris Bodnar, co-head of healthcare & life sciences capital markets at CBRE. “As a result, investors continue to allocate more capital to these properties, which provide stability and consistently strong yields.
