Watson McCollister of Senturian Senior Housing Brokerage handled the sale of a 56-unit assisted living community in Anniston, Alabama. Built in 2000 on 24 acres, this community includes 32 assisted living and 24 memory care units. It was owned by a local operator and operated at a 26% margin on approximately $2.46 million of gross revenues. Occupancy was 91% when the initial offer was accepted, but shot up to 100% by closing, with NOI substantially improving as well.
With the help of an $830,000 mezzanine loan provided by United Community Bank and arranged by Contemporary Healthcare Capital, the out-of-state buyer (based in Charleston, South Carolina) purchased the community for $7.86 million, or about $140,000 per unit, with an 8.1% cap rate.
