Same-Store Community Results
BRE defines same-store communities as stabilized apartment communities owned by the company for two comparable twelve month periods. Of the 21,240 apartment homes owned directly by BRE, same-store homes totaled 19,878 for the quarter.
On a year-over-year basis, overall same-store revenues and NOI increased 5.3% and 6.6%, respectively, for the third quarter. The revenue increase was driven by a 5.5% increase in revenue earned per occupied home during the quarter and a 20-basis-point decrease in year-over-year financial occupancy levels. Annualized turnover during the third quarter was 71%, as compared with 70% during the third quarter of 2011. Same-store expenses increased 2.4% over third quarter 2011 levels.
On a sequential basis, same-store revenue and NOI increased 2.0%, and expenses increased 1.9% over second quarter 2012 levels. The sequential quarter increase in revenues was driven by a 1.7% increase in revenue earned per occupied home during the third quarter and by a 30 basis-point increase in financial occupancy.Investment Activity As of September 30, 2012, the first 175 homes had been delivered on the company’s Lawrence Station development in Sunnyvale, CA. At quarter end, the community had 87 occupied homes and had leased a total of 112 homes. Leasing velocity has averaged 37 homes per month since opening in late June. During the quarter, BRE exercised its option contract to purchase a land site in Redwood City, CA for $11.4 million. In September 2012, Calvera Point and Pinnacle at the Creek, two communities located in Denver, Colo., owned in unconsolidated joint ventures, were sold to third parties. Also in September, Pinnacle Galleria, a community located in Sacramento, CA also owned in an unconsolidated joint venture, was sold to a third party. BRE’s share of the proceeds from the property sales totaled $26.9 million and resulted in a gain of $6.0 million (inclusive of a promote of $2.3 million). The gain and promote are excluded from FFO per share results.
