The medical industry is experiencing positive demographic trends. As the baby boomer generation approaches retirement age, older population segments are expanding and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The population group of 85+ is expected to double in the next 20 years, and the 65+ bracket is forecast to double by the year 2050. Because the healthcare requirements of people within this demographic range are on average higher than the rest of the population, the sector is considered commercially stable for future investment. Triple net lease medical offices for sale add excellent low-risk diversification benefits to any investment portfolio.

The average size of buildings is between 6,000-12,000 square ft, and they are typically situated on lots between 0.75-1 acre, providing attractive land appreciation advantages for investors.
The sector boasts a healthy capitalization rate averaging between 4-6%, indicating this asset class is appropriate for investors seeking a strong and stable passive investment term.
