Patrick Byrne sold a 75 bed skilled nursing facility in Coulterville, Illinois, a small town 50 miles east of St. Louis. The 28,606 square foot building was built in 1999 on 0.83 acres and sold for almost $60,000/bed. Originally developed by a non-profit organization, the property struggled financially. Sold to a for profit owner, they were able to stabilize the property, improve operations(91% census at the time of sale). Despite being profitable, Illinois’ delay in Medicaid reimbursement and poor rates, led the owner to pursue a sale. Although the Medicaid rate is $101.09 and Illinois is approximately 6 months behind in reimbursement, Senior Living Investment Brokerage, Inc. was able to procure three strong offers within 10 days. The ultimate Buyer was a regional operator from Missouri. For additional information on this transaction, please contact Pat Byrne at 314/961-0070 or email@example.com

- Prepare a bio with company history and facilities owned and operated. What is your mission? Sellers want to know your philosophy and who they are leaving their property to.
- Have your equity lined up. Ask your personal banker to provide a letter referencing your financial strength and ability to provide the equity required for a transaction.
- Have your debt lined up. Obtain letters from two lenders speaking to their interest to provide financing for you.
- Put together a professional letter of intent with your logo. The letter of intent should clearly state the purchase price, earnest money deposit, due diligence period and closing period.
- Have your due diligence list ready so that a seller can anticipate the type of information that they will need to put together for you.
- It might sound simple, but don’t breach confidentiality and abide by the process that the broker and seller have established. Meet timelines and provide all information that is requested.
