We realized same-property NOI growth of over 6.6% and same-property revenue growth of 5.4%, for the third quarter of 2015 compared to the same period last year. On a year-to-date basis, we produced same-property NOI growth of 8.6% and same property revenue growth of 6.1%, from to the same period in last year. During the last quarter, we continued to reduce the age of our portfolio with the acquisition of two newly constructed investment properties, located in the San Antonio and Dallas sub-markets of Texas, and the profitable disposition of one of our oldest investment properties, Oakchase Apartment Homes, which was constructed in 1984. As a result, the average year of construction of Pure Multi's portfolio is now 2002. In addition, we have doubled our presence in the San Antonio market, as we continue to diversify our portfolio."
