HealthPeak Sells 10 Aegis Living Communities

HealthPeak Properties continues its exit from the seniors housing business, both its sale/leaseback portfolio as well as its RIDEA assets. In a large transaction, HealthPeak has sold 10 assisted living and memory care communities to its tenant, Aegis Living, which partnered with Blue Moon Capital Partners in the deal. The purchase price for the real estate (to HealthPeak) was $350 million, but the total price for the entire transaction was closer to $440 million, or about $626,700 per unit.

Senior Living Investment Brokerage Handles Memphis-Area Sale

Senior Living Investment Brokerage Handles Memphis-Area Sale

Bradley Clousing and Daniel Geraghty of Senior Living Investment Brokerage handled the sale of a skilled nursing facility in West Memphis, Arkansas. Consisting of 85 beds in 49 units, the facility is situated along the Mississippi River on the Arkansas-Tennessee border. It was built in 1975 and includes a well-maintained physical plant. Occupancy was low, at 55%, and since the census has dropped due to COVID, plus this facility being a geographic outlier, we can’t imagine it was overly profitable. It was owned by an Arkansas-based regional owner/operator that decided to divest this asset from its portfolio. Another regional owner/operator stepped in to acquire the facility, closing at the...

HCR ManorCare Exits Wisconsin Market

HCR ManorCare Exits Wisconsin Market

Ryan Saul and Toby Siefert of Senior Living Investment Brokerage have sold HCR ManorCare’s (now ProMedica Senior Care) last skilled nursing facility in the state of Wisconsin. The decision to sell came back in the summer of 2019, when the property was originally marketed. A buyer was found, and the property put under LOI, but the operating partner could not get comfortable with the deal.   So, the process started again, and the building went under LOI again in the spring of 2020 with a buyer group looking to grow its already strong presence in Wisconsin. The pandemic hit, and the building suffered from a COVID outbreak, but the parties involved remained patient and stuck to the original... Read More »
Not-For-Profit Takes Over Buffalo-Area Seniors Housing

Not-For-Profit Takes Over Buffalo-Area Seniors Housing

Helios Healthcare Advisors handled the sale of an independent/assisted living community in Lockport, New York, a suburb of Buffalo. Consisting of 40 AL units in one building and the remaining 24 IL units across 12 duplexes, the campus was originally built in 1989 by a group of local businessmen, who are the current seller. Historically, occupancy has remained above 90%, with a 100% private pay census. Its financial performance wasn’t bad either, with north of $500,000 of EBITDAR on nearly $2.1 million of revenues.   But as many communities felt across the country, state-mandated lockdowns hit and took a serious toll on both census and cash flow, the latter being closer to breakeven by...
