Clousing Arranges Second Savannah Sale This Year

Clousing Arranges Second Savannah Sale This Year

Closing his second senior living transaction in Savannah this year, Brad Clousing of Senior Living Investment Brokerage sold a large senior living community located just 10 minutes away from the historic center downtown. Built in 1986 and 1998, the 209-unit community features a majority of independent living units (146), but assisted living and memory care rooms too. Plus, the previous owner, HJ Sims, recently converted its personal care license to an assisted living license, giving the buyer added flexibility when it comes to acuity types. That should help as they embark on a plan to increase occupancy (from its current 74%) and boost the operating margin (from about 16% on $4.9 million... Read More »

We understand that sometimes a REIT or a lender has to make difficult decisions to protect its... Read More »

LTC Expands with Thrive

LTC Properties (NYSE: LTC) expanded its relationship with Thrive Senior Living, acquiring and then leasing another property to the Atlanta-based operator for $14.3 million, or $204,286 per unit.

PinPoint spins off to focus on seniors housing

PinPoint Commercial, a national boutique development partnership that has created over $600M in industrial, medical, retail and senior housing assets, is creating a new company, PinPoint Senior Living (PSL), to focus on the development of new senior living communities. We have written before of Pinpoint Commercial’s “Legacy” brand of seniors housing (see: Assisted Living technology at its best), and the company has so far developed eight properties in Texas, New Mexico, Georgia, Louisiana and Florida. This July, Legacy at Highwoods Preserve in Tampa, Florida is set to open, with 60 assisted living units and 22 memory care units, to be operated by Thrive Senior Living. But with this new...
