Looking to buy?


The question I was repeatedly asked in 2009 was, where is all the inventory? It seemed with constricted lending and the economic downturn, potential Sellers thought buyers couldn’t obtain financing. In addition, Sellers didn’t think they could achieve their desired value with a sale. We had a record year in 2009, and a number of our potential Sellers took us up on our offer to complete a confidential proposal to determine market value in 2010. What they found is we are getting deals done at the value we propose. This caused a flurry of new inventory which is a good sign. The sales process and due diligence is taking longer, but deals are getting done. Sellers just need to realize that buyers and lenders can’t pay for future upside and need to determine pricing on a trailing 12.

If you are in the market looking for nursing homes, assisted living or independent living facilities to buy, please contact me to be sure you are seeing our latest inventory. You can click on this Email link for more information. Ryan Saul.

Cacciabando and Binder Sell Four Nebraska Skilled Nursing Facilities


Jeff Binder and Nick Cacciabando represented a national provider in the sale of four underperforming skilled nursing facilities in Nebraska. Originally built in the 1970’s, this 214 bed portfolio had been upgraded since the mid-1990’s and are in above average condition. This package was a strategic disposition as the facilities did not fit into the long-term investment vision of the seller.

The Buyer is a regional long-term care provider with a strong presence in the Midwest. Their core business has centered on returning distressed, smaller, rural SNF facilities to profitability. With a successful track record of turning around similar underperforming/distressed facilities, this package will fit in well with their portfolio.

For additional information, please contact Nick or Jeff at 314/961-0070.
