BREMERTON, Wash. — Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors has brokered the sale of a 50-unit, 64-bed memory care community in Bremerton, across the Puget Sound from Seattle.
The asset, previously a skilled nursing facility, was completely renovated in 2016 and opened as a memory care community in 2017. The community maintained a 66 percent occupancy during the last couple of years, producing an average operating margin of 15 percent.
The property was a geographic outlier for the undisclosed seller. The buyer is a memory care-focused owner-operator with an established presence in the Seattle area. The price was $10.6 million, or $212,000 per unit.
The buyer plans to continue the focus on quality care as well as allocate approximately 20 percent of the rent roll to Medicaid residents.
