By Anuradha Kher, Online News EditorSan Diego–The CB Richard Ellis Senior Housing Services Group has arranged the sale of a senior housing portfolio consisting of 3,554 units situated in 45 senior housing communities for approximately $364 million.  Located in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wyoming, the communities offer independent living, assisted living services and dementia care. The communities were approximately 85 percent occupied at the time of sale. “Due to lack of liquidity in the current environment this transaction was heavily dependent upon the purchaser and existing lender working out mutually agreeable assumption terms of the existing in-place debt,” says Matthew Whitlock of CBRE. (Pictured: Amethyst Gardens in Peoria, Ariz., one of the communities sold in the portfolio transaction.)PNC ARCS Provides Over $5M for Two Multifamily Properties Totaling 160 UnitsSacramento, Calif.–PNC ARCS closed a loan in the amount of $5.82 million for the Ridgestone Apartments and the Granite Springs Apartments, two properties with a combined total of 160 units in Sacramento, Calif.Granite Springs and Ridgestone are both garden-style complexes constructed in 1973 and 1974 respectively.
