Cushman & Wakefield Recapitalizes New England Seniors Housing Portfolio

Cushman & Wakefield served as the exclusive advisor to a joint venture between LCB Senior Living and Harrison Street Real Estate Capital in their recapitalization of four New England seniors housing communities.

Two New Communities Trade In Arkansas

Evans Senior Investments closed out May by closing the sale of two private pay senior living communities in Arkansas for a combined $37.965 million, or $183,000 per unit. Located in the towns of Rogers and Bentonville (about 10 miles apart), the communities totaled 56 independent living cottages, 116 assisted living units and 36 memory care units, all with private bathrooms and modern finishes.

The seller was a regional owner/operator (represented by ESI). A joint venture between... Read More »
Aron Will Closes Two More Financings

Aron Will Closes Two More Financings

Heading into the Thanksgiving holiday, Aron Will of CBRE certainly had a bountiful month, closing nearly $80 million in two transactions. First, working on behalf of joint venture partners Harrison Street Real Estate Capital and The Springs Living®, Mr. Will arranged a $66.4 million construction loan to fund the construction of a 216-unit senior living community in Lake Oswego, Oregon (Portland MSA). A pair of national banks provided the floating rate loan, which came with a four-year term and 48 months of interest only. Using a conservative loan-to-value for the project, that would result in a per-unit value most likely above $400,000. The property’s location in one of the most affluent... Read More »
Buyers See Potential In Wildwood Independent Living Community

Buyers See Potential In Wildwood Independent Living Community

Joint venture partners Harrison Street Real Estate Capital, REDICO and American House Senior Living Communities clearly eyed potential at a newly built independent living community in Wildwood, Florida (near The Villages). Built in 2013, the community features 173 units ranging in size from 500 to 1,090 square feet. Based on a 30% operating margin on approximately $5.3 million of in-place revenues, and occupancy of 90% at the time of sale, we have estimated the cap rate to be about 5.2%.  Both occupancy and margins could be improved, with a good amount of hard work, of course. Since assuming management, American House has added private duty personal care services through Allegiance Home... Read More »
