A memory care community in need of a total turnaround just sold in the Turtle Creek neighborhood of Dallas, Texas. Ben Firestone and Joshua Salzman of Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors represented the seller, a publicly traded REIT whose national operator partner deemed the community to be non-core. The 32-unit community was both too small and too old, in addition to operating with low occupancy and no positive cash flow. It was also in need of significant capital expenditures to allow it to compete in its albeit highly desirable location.
Despite operational hurdles throughout the transaction process, the value-add community eventually sold to Iris Senior Living, a growing local owner/operator.
