Deal of the Week 
Chris Hyldahl and Mike Segal of Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors, recently closed on a portfolio of five skilled nursing facilities located in the Inland Empire area of southern California. The average occupancy was just over 90% with a Medi-Cal census of 77%. The rest was a combination of private pay, managed care, hospice and just 3% Medicare, which we assume represents some opportunity for the buyer. The seller was a family that was exiting the business, and the buyer was a private equity firm based in New York City. The purchase price was approximately $55 million, or just under $71,000 per bed. The cash flow had improved significantly during 2014, and based on annualized results, the cap rate came in at a relatively low 9.8%. The buildings are a little on the small size and several have a number of triples, which certainly hurts the marketing. So it looks like the seller got a very good price………………………….Want to read more news? Click here for a free trial to The SeniorCare Investor and download the current issue today

Financing of the Week
Richard Thomas and Meredith Davis of Grandbridge’s Seniors Housing and Healthcare Finance team arranged on behalf of ROC Seniors Housing Fund Manager, a subsidiary of Bridge Investment Group Partners, a $21.2 million fixed rate, nonrecourse first mortgage loan to acquire, renovate and repurpose a 345-unit senior living community in Phoenix, Arizona. AEW Capital Management, with Cushman & Wakefield providing advisory services, sold the property to ROC for $26.8 million, or $77,681 per unit.

Stat of the Week
What level of senior care is most expensive to build, on a cost per square foot basis? Well, it’s probably no surprise to many of you that, according to our database, independent living communities are the cheapest (at $170 per square foot, on average), or that stand-alone memory care facilities are the priciest (at $302 per square foot). Falling in between, assisted living communities (which can include a portion of memory care units) cost approximately $219 per square foot, and new skilled nursing facilities cost approximately $279 per square foot. The higher level of care needed, the higher the cost to build, but the higher the rents too.
In our database, which goes back to the beginning of 2013, we view development cost as inclusive of construction costs, land and developer fees, and we consider a community with majority independent living as an independent living community (same for all levels of acuity). ……………………….Want to read more news?
