Since September 2013, KA Real Estate has invested in 74 private-pay, seniors housing communities in 25 states totaling 10,511 units. Representing more than $1.2 billion in transaction value, these acquisitions have made KA Real Estate the 20th largest owner of seniors housing in the United States.
Through its strategic partnerships with top tier operators, such as Discovery Senior Living and the Freshwater Group, KA Real Estate’s objective is to bring operational efficiencies and improvements to the seniors housing communities it has acquired. By consolidating assets in an otherwise fragmented sector, the firm also expects to increase the value of its portfolios.
