Aliso Viejo, Calif. and New York, NY — Astounding investors and the real estate industry alike, Nelson Brothers Professional Real Estate, LLC, and Premier Senior Living, LLC, (New York) announced a 57% increase in net operating income for Eden Heights of Eden, New York, a 120- bed senior living facility. The property was first purchased for $6,987,000 with $2,087,000 in equity raised from 12 investors and a loan of $4,900,000 in 2009 with a projected NOI of $604,551 based on the investment’s private placement memorandum. According to Brian Nelson, Principal and co-founder for Nelson Brothers Professional Real Estate, the actual performance for 2010 produced an NOI of $949,483 including a 5% management fee which exceeded the original estimate by $344,932.
“We’re actually not that surprised,” said Nelson. “A 57% increase in net operating income in today’s economy is unparalleled, but that’s why we bought it, Premier saw the inefficiencies the previous owners were leaving on the table and they knew they could make an immediate impact. What’s even more impressive is that this wasn’t a high-risk, distressed or turnaround type project.
This was an older, stable, well-occupied property in a smaller farming community with impressive demographics.” He also added that with over 70% leverage on the property, the investors may also realize significant appreciations on top of the 8.25% distribution they are already receiving.
Both Brian and his brother, Patrick Nelson, also a principal and co-founder of the company credit much of this success to Premier’s business strategy and expertise in reducing costs, increasing revenue and driving up the bottom line that seemed to pay off substantially.
“We actually had investors from Southern California and other high-growth markets pass on this offering because they perceived a lack of upside and we agreed,” said Patrick. “We didn’t see a lot of upside coming from the local real estate market; we saw it from simple business fundamentals: cutting costs, increasing profit margins, improving customer service and growing revenue, that was all done in the underwriting and due diligence. Then Premier really capitalized”
