Senior Housing Investments & Transactions: Greystone Healthcare

Senior Living Investment Brokerage Facilitates 2 $30 Million Sales

In two separate transactions, Senior Living Investment Brokerage facilitated the sale of nine assisted living facilities and five senior housing communities for $29.5 million and $29.125 million, respectively. 

The first transaction, the Autumn Grove Cottage portfolio, consists of nine assisted living communities with a focus on memory care located in the Houston and San Antonio, Texas, areas. 


The properties are located in Harris, Montgomery and Bexar counties. Each property consists of 16 units and have a shared bathroom on each wing. Rates range from $5,500 to $5,590 per month. Two of the properties were in lease-up at marketing. All locations were stabilized by the time of closing.

The seller is a private owner/operator looking to exit the seniors housing space, and the buyer is a nonprofit entity looking to expand their presence in Texas. The purchase was financed through the issuance of health care bonds.

Matthew Alley and Toby Siefert of Senior Living Investment Brokerage handled the transaction.


The latter transaction, the Hollinger portfolio, includes four properties located in South Carolina and one in Florida. The portfolio features 282 assisted living units, and is a part of a larger, 11-property portfolio in which the remaining assets are scheduled to close at the end of March.  

Bradley Clousing, Ryan Saul and Jeff Binder handled the transaction.
