Texas Active Adults (55+) Community Market anticipated to drive the growth at a CAGR of 4.42% from 2021 to 2028.

Texas Active Adults (55+) Community Industry Overview

The Texas active adults (55+) community market size is expected to reach USD 41.5 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.42% from 2021 to 2028. The growing interest of the elderly population above 55 years of age towards maintenance-free lifestyle, socialization, a sense of community, and structured activities is one of the major factors driving the market. In addition, retirement not being in the eligibility criteria and the variety of support services and optional care available at these facilities are the factors boosting the market growth.

Furthermore, the baby boomer population is increasingly adopting the philosophy of simplifying their lives, desiring up-to-date modern conveniences and social engagement, pursuing experiences that promote activities, and a true sense of community and wellness. For several people, the capability to downsize and spend a lesser amount of time maintaining and cleaning a bigger house is the only reason they need to move into an independent living community. Given the advantages of active adult living facilities, key players are focusing on developing new establishments. The availability of various facilities, coupled with the increasing awareness, is contributing to the demand for active adult living communities.

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a slight decline in the demand for senior independent living facilities in Texas. This decline in demand was majorly due to the increased cost of homes. For instance, the average selling price in 2020 was USD 430,000, compared to USD 427,000 in the previous year. However, the fall in housing demand in the first two quarters of the year 2020 was short-lived. In the current scenario, several deals have been underway as players are majorly focusing on increasing their presence in Texas. In June 2021, a subsidiary of Livingston Street Capital, a boutique private equity firm concentrating on commercial real estate investments across the U.S., purchased a 180-unit active adult community in the Lewisville submarket of Dallas-Fort Worth.
