BROSSARD, QC, Jan. 16, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - BLF Real Estate Investment Trust ("BLF REIT") (TSXV: BLF.UN) announces a distribution of $0.0308 per unit to the registered holders of units as at January 31, 2014, payable on February 17, 2014.

BLF REIT also announces the sale of the five remaining undivided co-ownership units owned in the 3465-3475 Ridgewood property in Montréal for $560,000.

"The fair value of this asset was $418,000 in our September 30, 2013 financial statements so this sale will generate a gain of approximately $100,000 net of all transaction costs.
