8-Property Fresenius Medical Care Portfolio Trades Hands For $56.5 Million

An undisclosed buyer has acquired an eight-property single-tenant healthcare portfolio from Kingsbarn Realty Capital for $56.5 million.

Fresenius Medical Care occupies all eight of the properties, and the average remaining lease term is 10.4 years on the original 15-year leases. The eight properties total 94,000 square feet and are located in Texas, Virginia, New York, Ohio, Georgia, and Missouri.

Fresenius-occupied properties have been popular among single-tenant net lease investors. According to The Boulder Group’s Third Quarter Net Lease Research Report in 2021, Fresenius was among the single-tenant properties to experience the greatest amount of cap rate compression for new construction properties. 7-Eleven and AutoZone were also on the list. Overall, cap rates for retail, office and industrial fell to 5.80%, 6.80% and 6.70%, respectively, and pricing in the sector is at all-time highs.

SRS’ national net lease group managing principals Matthew Mousavi and Patrick Luther and first VP Stephen Sullivan brokered the eight-property sale, representing Kingsbarn, as well as 14 other Fresenius-occupied properties since September 2021.

Mousavi says that the deals show the strong investor appetite for healthcare real estate, which he expects to continue.

“We see this trend continuing due to continued demographic changes with an aging population, the appeal of medical as an e-commerce resistant product type, and the fact that these operators tend to be well capitalized with strong financial positions—allowing for a more efficient sale to the marketplace as well as the availability of attractive financing for investors,” Mousavi said in a statement about the sale.

Other deals involving Fresenius include White Oak Healthcare MOB REIT’s acquisition of a seven-property medical office portfolio last year. The seven assets are 100% leased by Fresenius and DaVita affiliates. They total 67,110 square feet and are located in five states.

Medical office deals have become so popular that some office owners are trying to sell office properties with any medical tenants as medical office to capture better pricing and more investor interest. Some properties with as little as 25% medical office are being marketed as healthcare, according to Jon Boyajian, a principal at Echo Real Estate Capital, a medical office expert. However, investors should be cautious. Converting office into medical is no easy task.
