CCRC in St. Charles, Missouri, Sold by IPA for $17 Million

Institutional Property Advisors (IPA), a division of Marcus & Millichap Inc. that specializes in serving institutional and major private real estate investors, announced the sale of Carrington Place of St. Charles, a 294-bed, 234-unit continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in St. Charles, Missouri. 

Carrington Place of St. Charles has 138 independent living units, 27 assisted living units, 32 memory care units, and 66 semi-private and private skilled nursing beds. The $17 million sales price amounts to over $72,000 per unit.


Community amenities include a beauty and barber shop, a chapel, a deli and coffee shop, a courtyard, multiple dining rooms, a theater/auditorium, a health center and an ice cream parlor. The CCRC is also located within eight miles of 1,000 short-term acute care hospital beds.

IPA Senior Director Josh Jandris, IPA Executive Director Mark Myers, IPA Associate Director Charles Hilding and Marcus & Millichap Associate Richard Lynn represented the seller, a private company. Myers, Hilding, Jandris and Lynn also procured the purchaser, a private owner/operator from Chicago. Bradley Barham, sales manager in Marcus & Millichap’s St. Louis office, is the firm’s broker of record in Missouri.

“This was a unique opportunity for the buyer,” Myers said. “The seller had recently converted approximately 27 independent living units to assisted living, which improved revenue and cash flow, and will have a positive impact on future marketing. The new supply of seniors housing being built in the market will charge much higher monthly rates than the Carrington Place, further increasing the property’s attractiveness.”

Blueprint Announces Sale of Skilled Nursing Facility in Washington, D.C.

Blueprint announced the successful sale of a 296-bed skilled nursing facility in Washington, D.C., called Deanwood Rehab and Wellness Center.

Blueprint said it confidentially reached out to a small group of prospective purchasers on behalf of a private New York-based seller.

After consummating the deal, Deanwood reached an occupancy level of 95% with an attractive quality mix and realized $33.5 million and $7.5 million in total revenue and EBITDAR on an annualized basis, respectively.

Blueprint said its process commanded a top of market purchase price of $50 million, or $168,918 per bed, which included a performance-based earn out. Upon the operator hitting particular performance thresholds, the purchase price attained by Blueprint will represent a record-breaking price per bed for skilled nursing facility sales in Washington D.C.

Blueprint’s Tim Cobb, Christopher Hyldahl and Steve Thomes worked together to execute the transaction.
