Diversified Healthcare Trust (DHC) divested a couple of its SHOP assets, both located in Mississippi and operated by Five Star Senior Living under the Hermitage Gardens name. Built around 2000 and renovated in 2005, the properties include a 57-unit assisted living community in Oxford and a 59-unit AL community in Southaven.
DHC acquired them in 2006 for a combined $12.4 million, or $112,700 per unit, and at a 7.5% cap rate. The current purchase price is not known, but in DHC’s second quarter earnings report, the company mentioned selling two managed senior living properties and two MOBs subsequent to the quarter for a combined $5.197 million. An undisclosed private equity firm was the buyer. Krone Weidler and L.J. Tsunis, with an assist from William Davis, of Marcus & Millichap’s Tampa office represented both the buyer and seller in the transaction.
