Buy-to-let investment for an ageing population

We live in an ageing population.   With the Rolling Stones headlining Glasto at 70 and when the new mid-lifer crisis comes at 50 or even 60 this is obviously the case.  An ageing population and a greater life expectancy means that there is an increasing amount of 'empty nesters' looking at downsizing.  An investment opportunity for landlords?  I suspect so but I'm not sure how we capitalise on it.  This investment property in Westcliff-on-sea in the Southend suburbs could be the ideal way of investing in the grey pound.  At just over £2 million for the block the passing gross yield comes in at just over 10% with an opportunity to up this through active management of the block.  All flats are subject to a 60+ age restriction which makes the entire line up of the Rolling Stones eligible!  Hey Mick, Keith can't get no satisfaction…. well come down to Westcliff-on-sea!
