JLL Capital Markets’ Mike Garbers and Cody Temper recently arranged the sale of nine seniors housing communities on behalf of the seller, a large public REIT. The portfolio consists of one North Carolina and eight South Carolina properties, encompassing 558 assisted living and memory care units. 

The first sale, in North Carolina, involves a 52-unit assisted living and memory care community that was sold to a private equity group. The property has been closed and vacant since April due to a fire, but extensive remodeling and repairs are foreseeable so the community can undergo rebranding upon reopening.

The second transaction, in South Carolina, consists of 506 units across eight properties that were sold to another private equity group. The communities will be rebranded and the new owner is expected to provide extensive capital improvements to the communities.
