Twin Light Capital Acquires in Florida

Twin Light Capital Acquires in Florida

After completing its first acquisition in Minnesota, a 13-property assisted living portfolio, Twin Light Capital headed south and recently closed on a smaller community in Florida.

It is a relatively posh area (Tom Brady just bought a house there as he joins the... Read More »

Blueprint Closes Ohio SNF Deal

Blueprint Closes Ohio SNF Deal

Connor Doherty, Ryan Kelly, Chris Hyldahl and Gideon Orion of Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors closed a skilled nursing deal in Ohio on May 1. It took a motivated seller, experienced buyer and a willing lender to get the deal done, not always an easy combination these days.  An older vintage with some recent updates, the 150-bed skilled nursing facility is located near Youngstown, Ohio. It was owned by a REIT and managed by a large national operator, but the time had come to sell. Turnover in key leadership positions had caused occupancy to decline, which we are sure added to the motivation to exit.   Blueprint positioned the property as a value-add opportunity, if a new...
