American Realty Advisors Announces Acquisition of Dallas Apartment Home Community

GLENDALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 18, 2007 -- American Realty Advisors announced today that it has completed its acquisition of ALARA Villages of Addison, a sophisticated 264-unit gated apartment community in Dallas, Texas. Located just off the Dallas North Tollway, this Class A Property provides tenants with excellent access to an abundance of upscale retail developments, major employment centers and entertainment venues, including the Galleria Dallas Mall and The Shops at Legacy.

ALARA Villages of Addison underwent extensive renovation in 2006 providing tenants with luxury upgrades including granite/marble countertops, custom wood cabinetry, and slate/wood flooring. The Property remains competitive among the much sought-after upper-echelon multi-family properties in the Dallas area. The community also features state-of-the-art amenities including a clubhouse, fitness center, lavish pools and lush landscaped grounds. The Property was purchased on behalf of one of American's commingled funds, and represents the latest addition to the firm's line of premier, garden-style multi-family properties operated under the ALARA brand.

Greg Blomstrand, Principal and Managing Director, Portfolio Management commented, "ALARA Villages of Addison represents an ideal multi-family acquisition due to its superior location, luxury amenities, and strong demographics stemming from surrounding employment centers.
