VISTA, CALIF. — Senior Living Investment Brokerage (SLIB) has arranged the sale of Vista Gardens, a 71-unit memory care community in Vista, located between San Diego and Los Angeles.
A private equity firm based in Colorado acquired the community for $22.8 million as part of a growth strategy in seniors housing. The seller was a local, single-asset owner seeking to exit the industry.
Vista Gardens totals 44,000 square feet and is located on a 4.5-acre plot. The price equates to $321,000 per unit.
Alec Blanc of Monarch Advisors (an affiliate of SLIB) sourced the senior debt for the transaction. It consisted of an $18.1 million loan, including $1.9 million for planned capital expenditures, from a regional commercial bank. The loan is structured with a five-year term, interest-only payments for the first two years and partial recourse from the buyer with a burn-off provision.
Jason Punzel, Brad Goodsell and Vince Viverito of Senior Living Investment Brokerage handled the transaction.
