Within Texas, the properties are majority concentrated in Dallas/Fort Worth, with the remainder in Houston, Austin, and San Antonio.

The REIT’s other properties are located in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Utah, which collectively account for approximately 40% of the units within the Initial Properties (or approximately 39% of forecasted NOI for the twelve-month period ending Dec. 31, 2013).

Separately, Starlight U.S. Multi-Family Core Fund in Ontario is set to go to market to raise $75 million in an initial public offering.
