  • Drinking the Kool-Aid in Washington (State), Again

    The people of the state of Washington are getting closer to having to make a decision about a new payroll tax to fund a “long-term” care benefit, that is anything but long term. The 58-cent tax withholding for every $100 of salary and bonus may not seem like much, but the benefit is not much either.  This reminds us (sort of) of the Class... Read More »

Cushman & Wakefield’s Senior Housing Capital Markets team completed the sale of two skilled nursing/assisted living facilities on behalf of the public, non-traded REIT, Healthcare Trust, Inc.

Ziegler Sells Two Healthpeak Properties/Brookdale Senior Living CCRCs

Ziegler Sells Two Healthpeak Properties/Brookdale Senior Living CCRCs

Ziegler’s Dan Revie Tedd Van Gorden represented Healthpeak Properties in the sale of its last two entrance-fee CCRCs that were part of its joint venture with Brookdale Senior Living. The deal includes Foxwood Springs, a 434-unit campus in Raymore, Missouri, and Robin Run, a 457-unit campus in Indianapolis, Indiana. Both were originally part of the National Benevolent Association portfolio that went through bankruptcy proceedings over a decade ago. And after Healthpeak bought out Brookdale’s interest in the joint venture in Fall 2019, these were the only two campuses excluded from that transaction.  Subsidiaries of the Texas-based not-for-profit Boncrest Resource Group acquired the...

Evans Senior Investments Sells Vacant Community in Indiana

Evans Senior Investments Sells Vacant Community in Indiana

The team at Evans Senior Investments sold a vacant seniors housing community in Valparaiso, Indiana for $9.15 million, or $93,000 per unit, which at first glance is a strong value for an empty building. After opening its doors in March 2018, the community struggled to lease up and went through two different management companies. The pandemic only made things worse, and ownership decided to shutter the community in September 2020.   It currently features 98 units that were set aside for assisted living and memory care. A regional private equity group was able to buy the property at below replacement cost and hired Priority Life Care to operate and oversee the leasing of it. Before Priority... Read More »

Blueprint Sells SNF in Erie, Pennsylvania

Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors handled the sale of a 120-bed skilled nursing facility in Erie, Pennsylvania. Connor Doherty, Michael Segal and Ryan Kelly handled the deal on behalf of the seller. Located in a competitive submarket, the facility was originally built in 1950 and underwent a major expansion in 1982. It had been steadily improving its operations and census prior to the pandemic, reaching about 85% occupancy. However, like at many facilities across the country, census dropped to around 60% by the time of closing.  Its regional owner/operator owner deemed the facility to be non-core to its long-term growth plans and hired Blueprint to handle the marketing and sale...

Bloom Senior Living Sells Two South Carolina Communities

Kandu Capital and its operating affiliate Bloom Senior Living just sold two of their South Carolina assisted living and memory care communities.

Then, several new communities were opened in the market and COVID-19 appeared. Occupancy dipped but the communities remained very cash... Read More »
