Blueprint Turns Two in Arkansas for Rookie SNF Investor

Blueprint Healthcare Real Estate Advisors helped a publicly traded real estate investment trust (REIT) offload a pair of non-core skilled nursing facilities in Arkansas, the Chicago-based brokerage and advisory firm announced Wednesday.

A Louisiana-based health care real estate investor picked up the two properties, which have a total of 234 licensed beds; the deal represented the buyer’s entrance into the skilled nursing investment market.

The properties are located on either side of Arkansas, about 250 miles away from each other, and will remain under the control of the existing operator.

“Blueprint positioned the offering as a value-add opportunity to more competitively position the assets in their respective local markets through capital investment to drive census growth,” the brokerage noted in a statement announcing the deal.

Blueprint’s Ben Firestone, Michael Segal, and Brooks Blackmon served as the lead advisors on the transaction.
