IN Hotel Sale Brings Condor Closer to Portfolio Repositioning

Hotel REIT Condor Hospitality Trust has closed on the sale of a legacy hotel asset, the 135-room Comfort Suites in South Bend, IN, for $6.1 million. The buyer was not disclosed.  Net proceeds from the sale will be applied to outstanding debt on the company’s $150-million secured credit facility.

With the conclusion of this sale, Condor has just three legacy assets, compared to 55 that it owned at the beginning of 2015 under the name Supertel Hospitality. “Of the three legacy assets remaining, one is under contract for sale and one is being actively marketed for sale, though there can be no guarantee that these two planned dispositions will actually close,” said CEO Bill Blackham.

Blackham added that Condor’s portfolio repositioning is now “substantially complete as we have now sold 52 legacy hotels generating over $150 million in gross proceeds, and recycled the net proceeds into 14 high-quality select-service assets with an average age of less than four years old.”
