REITs Are Moving Assets Again

Just when we thought it was safe to go outside again, it was revealed that Welltower had transferred the operations of 20 memory care and Alzheimer’s communities from one of its formerly favored tenants, Silverado Senior Living, to a formerly much smaller tenant, Frontier Management. These 20 properties represent 50% of Silverado’s memory care operations, […]

Frontier Management Sells The Frontier Four

Frontier Management just sold four of its Pacific Northwest seniors housing communities to a publicly-traded REIT but won’t be exiting entirely. In addition to continuing as the operator, Frontier also retained a joint venture ownership interest in the portfolio.

Hunt Real Estate Capital Rises in Phoenix

Nearly a year on from its departure from RED Capital Group, the Kathryn Burton Gray-led team at Hunt Real Estate Capital closed a $7.0 million bridge loan to fund the acquisition of a 44-unit memory care community in Phoenix, Arizona.

Frontier Moving Forward With Financing From Columbia Pacific Advisors

Fresh off of Frontier Management’s ownership restructuring, it was business as usual for the firm, which obtained financing for its newly opened standalone memory care community in Tucson, Arizona.

American Realty Capital still in the big leagues

We wrote a few months ago that American Realty Capital Healthcare Trust appeared to be going strategic in their deal making, meaning they were purchasing smaller one-off communities rather than the larger portfolio sales they were known for. In fact, in all of their deals before 2015 (going back to their first transaction in 2012), […]

Harrison Street makes an exit…and a return

An assisted living community in Mesa, Arizona has evolved a lot over its 30-year history. Built in 1985 as low-income housing, it was converted to seniors housing in 1996. Between 2003 and 2007, the owner at the time invested $5 million in renovations that allowed them to more than double rents in that time. Then, […]
