SLIB Negotiates $13.2M Sale of Seniors Housing Community in Savannah
SAVANNAH, GA. — Senior Living Investment Brokerage (SLIB) has arranged the sale of Savannah Commons, an independent living, assisted living and memory care community in Savannah. A partnership between Equus Development and Thrive Senior Living purchased the community for $13.2 million. The property offers 209 units approximately eight miles southwest of the city’s historic downtown district. The majority of the units — 149 — are designated for independent living. All the assisted living areas were recently converted from a personal care license to an assisted living license, giving the new owner flexibility to adapt to different acuity levels. The 178,281-square-foot facility was built in 1986 and renovated most recently in 1998. The new owners plan to make physical plant upgrades to the property. Savannah Commons was 74 percent occupied at the time of closing. The price translates to $63,271 per unit and a capitalization rate of 6.1 percent. Bradley Clousing of SLIB represented the seller, a limited liability company controlled by HJ Sims, in the transaction.
