American Realty Advisors Acquires ALARA® Greenwood Village in Denver, Colorado

GLENDALE, CA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2008) - American Realty Advisors announced today the acquisition of ALARA® Greenwood Village, a 304-unit multi-family community located within the Denver Technological Center ("DTC") in Colorado. The DTC is a 909-acre business park located at the junction of two major freeways, I-25 and I-225, and is only 10 miles south of downtown. The DTC serves as the gateway to Denver's southeast business corridor, the largest concentration of office space in Colorado and therefore is a major source of employment.

The property was acquired on behalf of one of American's commingled funds and represents the latest addition to the line of premier garden-style, multi-family properties owned by the firm's clients and operated under the ALARA® brand. Built in 1995, the community is comprised of 36 two and three-story buildings that overlook natural wetlands. Units feature above average size with townhome layouts, full-sized washer/dryers, private patios/balconies and direct access parking garages. The property is complemented by a clubhouse, which includes a 24-hour fully equipped fitness center, racquetball court, spa and sauna, theater room, and a beautiful outdoor area with heated pool. Residents at ALARA® Greenwood Village enjoy access to local amenities such as Cherry Creek State Park, Village Plaza, Belleview Promenade, Crescent Town Center and Wallace Park.

American's President and CEO, Stanley Iezman commented, "ALARA® Greenwood Village possesses many of the key attributes we seek in core multi-family investments. These characteristics include a location in the highest ranked school district in Colorado, proximity to a solid employment base in the DTC, nearby convenience retail and recreational amenities, and attractive unit plans. We are confident that this investment, acquired approximately 20% below replacement cost, will produce stable returns for our investors over the course of our holding period. "
