Patrick Byrne of Senior Living Investment Brokerage Sells Illinois Assisted Living Community

Share

Patrick Byrne has sold a 65 unit assisted living community in Illinois located approximately 40 miles outside St. Louis. The facility opened in 2004 with much success. In 2008 the addition opened in the height of the recession and struggled before ultimately filling by offering “life contracts” to new residents. The facility census stabilized but the margins suffered due to below market rents. In recent years the margins began to improve as units leased at below market rates turned over. The Seller was a local group of investors. The Buyer was American Realty Capital who retained Meridian Senior Living as the operator. The census at the time of sale was 95.4% and the cap rate was 8.18%/3.67 GIM on annualized financials. For additional information contact Pat Byrne at 314-961-0070 or byrne@slibinc.com

Operating Margins of Senior Living Communities compared with Apartment Buildings

Share
In analyzing thousands of communities each year, we find a very wide range in operating margins.  Newer, larger communities have higher operating margins than older, smaller facilities.  Communities with high occupancy rates, have higher operating margins than facilities with lower occupancy rates. 
However, stabilized assisted living communities typically have operating margins (EBITDA margin) between 25-40%, and independent living communities between 30-40%+.   Stabilized apartment buildings that are similar in age and size have operating margins between 40-55%.  This is due to the fact that apartment buildings do not have all of the extra services, medical, food, activities and staffing that independent and assisted living communities have.  Additionally, apartment buildings typically have less common areas; kitchens, dining rooms, etc, allowing for more rentable square feet, than senior living facilities. 
Because of the higher operating margins and lower variable expenses, investors perceive apartment buildings to be lower risk than senior living facilities resulting in lower cap rates (higher prices).  Apartment buildings can have cap rates 150-250 basis points lower than a similar age and size senior living facility.   However, as senior living facilities continue to become more main stream with investors, the perceived risk decrease resulting in a smaller spread in cap rates.

Selling..Keep calm..Where to start?

Share
So, you have thought about selling your seniors housing or long-term care community.  Now what? 
For most of our clients the stress and anxiety immediately sets in.  Put that fear to rest by working with a professional that handles hundreds of transactions.  Senior Living Investment Brokerage, Inc. is there to help you.  
Here is one tip.  As part of the process, take inventory of your community and what might need to be fixed or improved.  One of the biggest stresses is when someone points out the things wrong with your community.  Beat them to the punch and it will avoid a lot of unnecessary stress.  Make sure floors/carpets are clean, paint is touched up and it is a pleasant experience to walk the halls.  If you make a good first impression with the condition of the community, it will alleviate a lot of the tedious investigation.  What they see first will give them the impression of how the rest of the community is taken care of.
Contact Ryan Saul to discuss our sales process and other things you can do to alleviate stress.
