As of December 31, 2012, the Company had 40 properties in real estate owned ("REO") with an aggregate book value of $8.6 million compared to 71 properties with an aggregate book value of $6.7 million at June 30, 2012, and 109 properties in REO with an aggregate book value of $8.2 million at December 31, 2011.  The decrease in number of properties during the six months ended December 31, 2012 was primarily attributable to ongoing sales of residential properties. Twelve residential properties and one commercial real estate property were sold last quarter. During the quarter ended December 31, 2012 the Bank sold seven residential real estate properties located in Washington State for an aggregate loss of $84,000. The aggregate book value of REO increased primarily due to the foreclosure during the current quarter of a $3.5 million commercial real estate loan located in Pacific, Washington, which is the Bank's largest REO property at December 31, 2012. At December 31, 2012, the Bank owned 13 one-to-four family residential properties with an aggregate book value of $3.1 million, 20 residential building lots with an aggregate book value of $687,000, one vacant land parcel with a book value of $15,300, and six parcels of commercial real estate with an aggregate book value of $4.8 million. Our REO is located in southwest Washington and the greater Portland area of northwest Oregon, with 34 of the parcels in Washington and the remaining six in Oregon.
