"These Class A properties are an average age of only 4.7 years with an average distance to campus of just 0.2 miles. In addition, we once again had solid internal growth with 4.1 percent same store NOI for the quarter compared to the prior year, while simultaneously using our proprietary leasing and revenue management systems to complete the 2012-2013 leasing season with an industry leading same store occupancy with strong rental rate growth. These results have set the stage for another year of robust revenue and NOI growth. We believe our performance this quarter clearly reinforces our best-in-class reputation in the student housing industry."
