Retirement Housing and Medical Facilities : Preference, Proximity and Price

  • Baden U'Ren

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


This thesis examines the impact of proximity to medical facilities on the price of retirement housing in Australia, where legislation defines a category of residential housing as being exclusively for the use of retired persons. Research in the field of gerontology consistently shows proximity to medical facilities to be a significant driver of choice for residential location decisions of retired persons. It is hypothesised that increased proximity to medical facilities will have a positive effect on the price of retirement housing.
