The Newmark team has closed the sale of a seniors housing community in Chesapeake, Virginia (Virginia Beach MSA). Opened in 2000, the community features 47 assisted living and 26 memory care units. It averaged occupancy of 77% in 2020, which provided moderate cash flow for ownership.  

But that level could be improved, so a new regional owner/operator stepped in to acquire the property for $12 million, or $165,000 per unit. They expect to invest capex into the community and improve the physical plant. Their regional presence should also help provide scale to increase the operating margin.
