To fund the acquisition of a skilled nursing facility in Youngstown, Ohio, Fred Levine of Greystone arranged bridge financing for the new owner. Built in 1964, the facility features 99 beds and has been owned and operated by Guardian Healthcare. However, going forward, Bal Harbour Management will take over day-to-day management.
The bridge loan comes out to $3.98 million, or around $40,200 per bed. Assuming a typical 70% loan-to-value, that puts the purchase price around $57,400 per bed, which is right around the average for facilities built more than 40 years ago of $56,100 per bed, according to the 26th Edition of The Senior Care Acquisition Report. After a seasoning period, the borrower intends to take the loan to HUD and receive a permanent mortgage valued between $6.1 and $6.5 million.
