IPA Sells SNF in Texas

Institutional Property Advisors (IPA) sold Seabury Nursing Center, a 75-bed skilled nursing facility (SNF) in Odessa, Texas, for an undisclosed price in early March.

The facility was being run by a local non-profit, at a loss, for the last few years. With the sale, the group is exiting the long-term care business. Previous owners did major cap ex work on the facility in 2015 and 2016, draining the non-profit’s liquidity. Operations started to decline during renovations with one wing of rooms taken out of service.

Trinity finished the renovations, shored up operations of the asset and closed on the real estate on March 1, 2017.
