Deal of the Week
The Carlyle Group recently purchased an assisted living community in San Diego, California. While the price has not been disclosed, we believe it is north of $200,000 per unit, which is high for a converted hotel. But this is southern California. The community has 56 assisted living units and 31 memory care units, and occupancy has been above 90%. We believe Carlyle will keep Integral Senior Living in as the manager, which makes sense since they appear to be doing a good job and generating solid margins. One can only imagine what would happen to the bottom line if occupancy hit that magic 100%. CBRE represented the seller in the transaction…. Want to read more news?

Financing of the Week
Greystone closed a $54.5 million bridge loan for the acquisition of a 280-bed skilled nursing facility in Southampton, New York, or $194,600 per bed. The interest-only loan closed in 90 days, facilitating the acquisition by SentosaCare, which had been leasing the property for more than six years. The facility was built around 2000 and has an occupancy rate of 96.8%, which is astounding given they try to have a focus on the Medicare side of the business. Greystone will be refinancing the bridge loan with HUD, and it will be one of the highest per-bed loan values for HUD. But come on, it is the Hamptons after all….Want to read more news?

Stocks of the Week
One would have to say that the entire health care REIT sector would be worthy of the label “stock of the week,” since the entire sector moved up significantly in January. But there were two standouts, including National Health Investors, up 12% in January when the rest of the market did not perform so well, and Sabra Health Care REIT, up 11%. The Big Three were all up 8% to 9%, which is not too shabby, but remember that Sabra had a total return in 2013 of 26.6%. The Big Three had negative returns last year even after factoring in dividends. So will 2014 be kind to the health care REITs? So far so good, but not if interest rates take another 50 to 100 basis point spike later in the year, which is not in the forecast……Want to read more news?

Stat of the Week
Did you know that the non-traded health care REITs announced 38 acquisitions last year, compared with 34 for the U.S.-listed publicly traded health care REITs? But that is the only category in which they beat out the publicly traded REITs, which had double the dollar value in deals and double the number of units and buildings. But they are definitely catching up…….Want to read more news? Click here for a free trial to The SeniorCare Investor and download the current issue today
