This strategy will mean that we will have far more depreciation run through our income statement and FFO, or Funds from Operations, will back this out so an investor can have a clear perspective on how we are doing. This is another strategy to build long-term book value through appreciated investments, while maintaining strong cash flow and a high dividend.

So far, in my opinion, we have excelled in this strategy.

In total we own properties with approximately 10 to $15 million in equity, and expect returns in excess of 18%, including 5 to 10% cash-on-cash returns in the first year growing. We have done this through joint ventures as well as directly through our management company.

Credit generally continued to improve and our provisions for loan loss has decreased significantly, nearly 70% from the prior year. We believe the credit environment is still improving for real estate, but we are certainly aware of the weaker macro situation.
