- Second quarter 2013 same-store revenues and net operating income (NOI) increased 4.7% and 7.1%, respectively, compared to the second quarter 2012. During the quarter, physical occupancy averaged 95.0%; annualized turnover was 64.5%; and average revenue per occupied home was $1,694.
- Core FFO results of $0.63 per share for the second quarter compared to the previously provided Company guidance of $0.56 to $0.60 per share reflect: (1) solid same-store revenue growth; (2) a reduced level of same-store operating expenses (including a lower level of repairs and maintenance expense and the benefit of $1.0 million in same-store real estate tax refunds); (3) timing on certain G&A expenses (primarily legal related costs); and (4) the timing of community dispositions which closed in late June.
- As previously reported, during the second quarter, BRE completed the sale of a wholly owned apartment community in Los Angeles, California for net proceeds of $46.8 million and the sale of an apartment community in Phoenix, Arizona in which the Company owned a 15% interest. Total net proceeds to BRE for the joint venture interest sale were $6.0 million.
- The Company completed construction of Aviara, a 166-home community located on Mercer Island in Seattle, Washington.
