More Sales From Newmark

More Sales From Newmark

We have recently reported on some larger transactions from the Newmark team, but they have also closed some smaller ones. In late November, the team closed on the sale of a 150-unit active adult community in Texas. The community was built in 2015 and has 150 units. They went to market in later 2019 but then the pandemic interrupted the process.  That did not deter buyer and seller, as they waited it out for occupancy to get to 92%, which it did, and the deal closed.

The three communities with 483 units are located in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Delaware and average about 45% independent living, 34% assisted living and 21% memory care units. Overall occupancy is a solid 94%. The buyer was Partners Group, an international... Read More »
