CONDENSED NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
September 30, 2019
(unaudited)


1.         Organization and Business
Steadfast Apartment REIT III, Inc. (the “Company”) was formed on July 29, 2015, as a Maryland corporation that elected to be taxed as, and qualifies as, a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) commencing with the taxable year ended December 31, 2016. On August 24, 2015, the Company was initially capitalized with the sale of 8,000 shares of Class A common stock to Steadfast Apartment Advisor III, LLC (the “Advisor”), a Delaware limited liability company, at a purchase price of $25.00 per share for an aggregate purchase price of $200,000.
The Company owns and operates a portfolio of multifamily properties located in targeted markets throughout the United States. As of September 30, 2019, the Company owned ten multifamily properties comprising a total of 2,775 apartment homes. For more information on the Company’s real estate portfolio, see Note 3 (Real Estate).
Public Offering
On February 5, 2016, the Company commenced its initial public offering to offer a maximum of $1,000,000,000 in shares of common stock for sale to the public in the primary offering (the “Primary Offering”). The Company initially offered Class A shares and Class T shares in the Public Offering at an initial price of $25.00 for each Class A share ($500,000,000 in Class A shares) and $23.81 for each Class T share ($500,000,000 in Class T shares), with discounts available for certain categories of purchasers. The Company also registered up to $300,000,000 in shares pursuant to the Company’s distribution reinvestment plan (the “DRP,” and together with the Primary Offering, the “Public Offering”) at an initial price of $23.75 for each Class A share and $22.62 for each Class T share.
Commencing on July 25, 2016, the Company revised the terms of its Public Offering to include Class R shares. The Company subsequently offered a maximum of $1,000,000,000 in shares of common stock for sale to the public at an initial price of $25.00 for each Class A share ($400,000,000 in Class A shares), $22.50 for each Class R share ($200,000,000 in Class R shares) and $23.81 for each Class T share ($400,000,000 in Class T shares), with discounts available for certain categories of purchasers. Up to $300,000,000 in shares were offered pursuant to the DRP at an initial price of $23.75 for each Class A share, $22.50 for each Class R share and $22.62 for each Class T share.
As of August 31, 2018, the date the Company terminated its Primary Offering, it had issued 3,483,706 shares of Class A common stock, 474,357 shares of Class R common stock and 4,572,889 shares of Class T common stock in the Public Offering for gross proceeds of $85,801,001, $10,672,273 and $108,706,960, respectively, and $205,180,234 in the aggregate, including 111,922 shares of Class A common stock, 8,450 shares of Class R common stock and 145,838 shares of Class T common stock issued pursuant to the DRP for gross offering proceeds of $2,658,156, $190,125 and $3,298,847, respectively. The Company suspended the DRP on February 5, 2019, effective beginning with distributions that accrued on February 1, 2019. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had issued 3,528,797 shares of Class A common stock, 479,529 shares of Class R common stock and 4,654,978 shares of Class T common stock in the Public Offering for gross proceeds of $86,834,671, $10,788,788 and $110,559,107, respectively, and $208,182,566 in the aggregate, including 157,012 shares of Class A common stock, 13,622 shares of Class R common stock and 227,925 shares of Class T common stock issued pursuant to the DRP for gross offering proceeds of $3,691,826, $306,640 and $5,150,991, respectively.
On October 9, 2018, the Company’s board of directors approved an estimated value per share for each of the Company’s Class A common stock, Class R common stock and Class T common stock of $22.54 as of June 30, 2018. In connection with the determination of an estimated value per share, the Company’s board of directors approved a price per share for the DRP for each of the Company’s Class A common stock, Class R common stock and Class T common stock of $22.54, effective November 1, 2018.
The business of the Company is externally managed by the Advisor pursuant to the Amended and Restated Advisory Agreement dated July 25, 2016, by and among the Company, Steadfast Apartment REIT III Operating Partnership, L.P. (the “Operating Partnership”) and the Advisor (as amended, the “Advisory Agreement”). The Advisory Agreement is subject to

annual renewal by the Company’s board of directors. The current term of the Advisory Agreement expires on February 5, 2020. Subject to certain restrictions and limitations, the Advisor manages the Company’s day-to-day operations, manages the Company’s portfolio of properties and real estate-related assets, sources and presents investment opportunities to the Company’s board of directors and provides investment management services on the Company’s behalf. The Advisor has also entered into an Advisory Services Agreement with Crossroads Capital Advisors, LLC (“Crossroads Capital Advisors”), whereby Crossroads Capital Advisors provides advisory services to the Company on behalf of the Advisor. The Company has retained Stira Capital Markets Group, LLC (formerly known as Steadfast Capital Markets Group, LLC) (the “Dealer Manager”), an affiliate of the Advisor, which served as the dealer manager for the Public Offering. The Advisor, along with the Dealer Manager, also provides marketing, investor relations and other administrative services on the Company’s behalf.
Substantially all of the Company’s business is conducted through the Operating Partnership. The Company is the sole general partner of the Operating Partnership and owns a 99.99% partnership interest in the Operating Partnership. The Advisor is the sole limited partner of and owns the remaining 0.01% partnership interest in the Operating Partnership. The Company and the Advisor entered into the Amended and Restated Agreement of Limited Partnership of the Operating Partnership on July 25, 2016 (as amended, the “Partnership Agreement”). As the Company accepted subscriptions for shares of its common stock in the Public Offering, the Company transferred substantially all of the net offering proceeds from the Public Offering to the Operating Partnership as a contribution in exchange for partnership interests and the Company’s percentage ownership in the Operating Partnership increased proportionately.
The Partnership Agreement provides that the Operating Partnership is operated in a manner that will enable the Company to (1) satisfy the requirements for being classified as a REIT for tax purposes, (2) avoid any federal income or excise tax liability and (3) ensure that the Operating Partnership will not be classified as a “publicly traded partnership” for purposes of Section 7704 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Internal Revenue Code”), which classification could result in the Operating Partnership being taxed as a corporation. In addition to the administrative and operating costs and expenses incurred by the Operating Partnership in acquiring and operating real properties, the Operating Partnership pays all of the Company’s administrative costs and expenses, and such expenses are treated as expenses of the Operating Partnership.
The Company commenced its real estate operations on May 19, 2016, upon acquiring a fee simple interest in Carriage House Apartment Homes, a multifamily property located in Gurnee, Illinois.
Pending Merger with Steadfast Apartment REIT, Inc.
On August 5, 2019, the Company, Steadfast Apartment REIT, Inc. (“STAR”), a public non-traded REIT sponsored by the Sponsor, the Operating Partnership, Steadfast Apartment REIT Operating Partnership, L.P., the operating partnership of STAR (“STAR Operating Partnership”), and SIII Subsidiary, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary STAR (“STAR III Merger Sub”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “STAR III Merger Agreement”). Subject to the terms and conditions of the STAR III Merger Agreement, STAR III will merge with and into STAR III Merger Sub (the “Merger”), with STAR III Merger Sub surviving the Merger, such that following the Merger, the surviving entity will continue as a wholly-owned subsidiary of STAR. In accordance with the applicable provisions of the Maryland General Corporation Law (the “MGCL”), the separate existence of STAR III shall cease.
At the effective time of the Merger and subject to the terms and conditions of the STAR III Merger Agreement, each issued and outstanding share of the Company’s common stock (or a fraction thereof), $0.01 par value per share, will be converted into the right to receive 1.430 shares of STAR common stock, $0.01 par value per share (“STAR Common Stock”).
The obligation of each party to consummate the Merger is subject to a number of conditions, including receipt of the approval of the Merger and of an amendment to the Company’s Second Articles of Amendment and Restatement (the “Charter”) to delete certain provisions regarding roll-up transactions by the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of the Company’s Common Stock (the “STAR III Stockholder Approval”).
The Company (with the prior approval of the special committee of its board of directors) may terminate the STAR III Merger Agreement in order to enter into an “Alternative Acquisition Agreement” with respect to a “Superior Proposal” (each as

defined in the STAR III Merger Agreement) at any time prior to receipt by the Company of the STAR III Stockholder Approval pursuant to the terms of the STAR III Merger Agreement. STAR may terminate the STAR III Merger Agreement at any time prior to the receipt of the STAR III Stockholder Approval, in certain limited circumstances, including upon an “Adverse Recommendation Change” (as defined in the STAR III Merger Agreement).
If the STAR III Merger Agreement is terminated in connection with the Company’s acceptance of a Superior Proposal or making an Adverse Recommendation Change, the Company must pay STAR a termination fee $5,320,000.
On August 5, 2019, STAR, Steadfast Income REIT, Inc. (“SIR”), a public non-traded REIT sponsored by the Sponsor, STAR Operating Partnership, Steadfast Income REIT Operating Partnership, L.P., the operating partnership of SIR (“SIR Operating Partnership”), and SI Subsidiary, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of STAR (“SIR Merger Sub”), entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “SIR Merger Agreement”). Subject to the terms and conditions of the SIR Merger Agreement, SIR will merge with and into SIR Merger Sub (the “SIR Merger”), with SIR Merger Sub surviving the SIR Merger, such that following the SIR Merger, the surviving entity will continue as a wholly-owned subsidiary of STAR. In accordance with the applicable provisions of the MGCL, the separate existence of SIR shall cease.
The consummation of the Merger is not contingent upon the completion of the SIR Merger and the consummation of the SIR Merger is not contingent upon the consummation of the Merger.
The combined company after the mergers (the “Combined Company”) will retain the name “Steadfast Apartment REIT, Inc.” Each merger is intended to qualify as a “reorganization” under, and within the meaning of, Section 368(a) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Concurrently with the entry into the STAR III Merger Agreement, the Company entered into an amendment (the “First Amendment”) to the Partnership Agreement. The First Amendment will become effective at the earlier of (i) the date that STAR III merges with and into STAR III Merger Sub and (ii) upon payment of certain consideration owed to the Advisor in connection with consummation of a Superior Proposal. The purpose of the First Amendment is to revise the economic interests of the Advisor by providing that the Advisor will not receive any special allocations with respect to a “Special Limited Partner Interest” (as defined in the Partnership Agreement) pursuant to the Partnership Agreement.
Concurrently with the entry into the STAR III Merger Agreement, the Company and the Advisor entered into a termination letter agreement (the “Termination Agreement”), effective as of August 5, 2019. Pursuant to the Termination Agreement, the Advisory Agreement will be terminated at the effective time of the Merger. Also pursuant to the Termination Agreement, the Advisor agreed to waive any disposition fee it otherwise would be entitled to pursuant to the Advisory Agreement related to the Merger and agreed to reimburse STAR III for its costs if the STAR III stockholders reject the Merger at a meeting of stockholders.
2.         Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
There have been no significant changes to the Company’s accounting policies since it filed its audited financial statements in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, other than Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-02, and the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (the “SEC”) Disclosure Update and Simplification rule (Release 33-10532), as further described and defined below. For further information about the Company’s accounting policies, refer to the Company’s consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2018, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 15, 2019. 
Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, the consolidated variable interest entity (“VIE”) that the Company controls and of which the Company is the primary beneficiary, and the Operating Partnership’s subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions are eliminated in consolidation. The financial statements of the Company’s subsidiaries are prepared using accounting policies consistent with those of the Company. The Operating

Partnership is a VIE because the Advisor, as the limited partner, lacks substantive kick-out rights and substantive participating rights. The Company is the primary beneficiary of, and consolidates, the Operating Partnership.
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information as contained within the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”), Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) and the rules and regulations of the SEC, including the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, the unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for audited financial statements. In the opinion of management, the financial statements for the unaudited interim periods presented include all adjustments that are of a normal and recurring nature and necessary for a fair and consistent presentation of the results of such periods. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019. The unaudited consolidated financial statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q (the “Quarterly Report”) should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates.
Fair Value Measurements
Under GAAP, the Company is required to measure certain financial instruments at fair value on a recurring basis. In addition, the Company is required to measure other assets and liabilities at fair value on a non-recurring basis (e.g., carrying value of impaired real estate loans receivable and long-lived assets). Fair value is defined as the price that would be received upon the sale of an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The GAAP fair value framework uses a three-tiered approach. Fair value measurements are classified and disclosed in one of the following three categories:
Level 1: unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical assets or liabilities;
Level 2: quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-derived valuations in which significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets; and
Level 3: prices or valuation techniques where little or no market data is available that requires inputs that are both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable.
When available, the Company utilizes quoted market prices from an independent third-party source to determine fair value and will classify such items in Level 1 or Level 2. In instances where the market is not active, regardless of the availability of a nonbinding quoted market price, observable inputs might not be relevant and could require the Company to make a significant adjustment to derive a fair value measurement. Additionally, in an inactive market, a market price quoted from an independent third party may rely more on models with inputs based on information available only to that independent third party. When the Company determines the market for a financial instrument owned by the Company to be illiquid or when market transactions for similar instruments do not appear orderly, the Company uses several valuation sources (including internal valuations, discounted cash flow analysis and quoted market prices) and will establish a fair value by assigning weights to the various valuation sources.
The following describes the valuation methodologies used by the Company to measure fair value, including an indication of the level in the fair value hierarchy in which each asset or liability is generally classified.

Interest rate cap agreements - The Company has entered into certain interest rate cap agreements. These derivatives are recorded at fair value. Fair value was based on a model-driven valuation using the associated variable rate curve and an implied market volatility, both of which were observable at commonly quoted intervals for the full term of the interest rate cap agreements. Therefore, the Company’s interest rate cap agreements were classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy and are included in other assets in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. Changes in the fair value of the interest rate cap agreements are recorded as interest expense in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.
The following tables reflect the Company’s assets required to be measured at fair value on a recurring basis on the consolidated balance sheets:

Changes in assumptions or estimation methodologies can have a material effect on these estimated fair values. In this regard, the derived fair value estimates cannot be substantiated by comparison to independent markets and, in many cases, may not be realized in an immediate settlement of the instrument.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The accompanying consolidated balance sheets include the following financial instruments: cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, rents and other receivables, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, due to affiliates, distributions payable and mortgage notes payable, net.
The Company considers the carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, rents and other receivables, accounts payable and accrued liabilities and distributions payable to approximate the fair value of these financial instruments based on the short duration between origination of the instruments and their expected realization. The fair value of amounts due to affiliates is not determinable due to the related party nature of such amounts. The Company has determined that its mortgage notes payable, net are classified as Level 3 within the fair value hierarchy.
The fair value of the mortgage notes payable, net is estimated using a discounted cash flow analysis using borrowing rates available to the Company for debt instruments with similar terms and maturities. As of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the fair value of the mortgage notes payable, net was $289,032,608 and $279,945,659, respectively, compared to the carrying value of $287,517,455 and $280,086,921, respectively.
Distribution Policy
The Company elected to be taxed as, and qualifies as, a REIT commencing with the Company’s taxable year ended December 31, 2016. To maintain its qualification as a REIT, the Company intends to make distributions each taxable year equal to at least 90% of its REIT taxable income (which is determined without regard to the dividends-paid deduction or net capital gain and which does not necessarily equal net income as calculated in accordance with GAAP). The Company’s board of directors authorized a distribution to the holders of Class A shares and Class T shares, which began to accrue on May 19, 2016.

The Company’s board of directors also authorized a distribution to the holders of Class R shares, which began to accrue on August 2, 2016.
Distributions declared during the period from January 1, 2018 to September 30, 2018, were based on daily record dates and calculated at a rate of $0.004110 per Class A share per day, $0.00394521 per Class R share per day subject to an annual distribution and shareholder servicing fee of 0.27%, and in some instances, $0.00369863 per Class R share per day subject to an annual distribution and shareholder servicing fee of 0.67% and $0.003376 per Class T share per day subject to an annual distribution and shareholder servicing fee of 1.125%, and in some instances, $0.003457 per Class T share per day subject to an annual distribution and shareholder servicing fee of 1.0%.
Distributions declared during the period from January 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019, were based on daily record dates and calculated at a rate of $0.004110 per Class A share, Class R share and Class T share per day. Each day during the period from May 19, 2016 to September 30, 2019, was a distribution record date with respect to Class A shares and Class T shares. Each day during the period from August 2, 2016 to September 30, 2019, was a distribution record date with respect to Class R shares.
Distributions to stockholders are determined by the board of directors of the Company and are dependent upon a number of factors relating to the Company, including funds available for the payment of distributions, financial condition, the timing of property acquisitions, capital expenditure requirements and annual distribution requirements in order for the Company to qualify as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company declared distributions totaling $0.378 and $1.122 per Class A, R and T shares of common stock, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company declared distributions totaling $0.378 and $1.122 per Class A share of common stock, $0.361 and $1.070 per Class R share of common stock and $0.313 and $0.928 per Class T share of common stock, respectively.
Per Share Data
Basic loss per share attributable to common stockholders for all periods presented are computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding for each class of shares outstanding during the period. Diluted loss per share is computed based on the weighted average number of shares of the Company’s common stock and all potentially dilutive securities, if any. Distributions declared per common share assume each share was issued and outstanding each day during the period. Nonvested shares of the Company’s restricted common stock give rise to potentially dilutive shares of the Company’s common stock but such shares were excluded from the computation of diluted earnings per share because such shares were anti-dilutive during the period.
In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 260-10-45, Earnings Per Share, the Company uses the two-class method to calculate earnings per share. Basic earnings per share is calculated based on dividends declared and the rights of common shares and participating securities in any undistributed earnings, which represents net income remaining after deduction of dividends declared during the period. The undistributed earnings are allocated to all outstanding common shares based on the relative percentage of each class of shares to the total number of outstanding shares. The Company does not have any participating securities outstanding but does have multiple classes of common stock, which at times had different dividend rates and an unvested portion of restricted Class A common stock. Earnings attributable to the unvested restricted Class A common stock are deducted from earnings in the computation of per share amounts where applicable.
Segment Disclosure
The Company has determined that it has one reportable segment with activities related to investing in multifamily properties. The Company’s investments in real estate are in different geographic regions, and management evaluates operating performance on an individual asset level. However, as each of the Company’s assets has similar economic characteristics, tenants and products and services, its assets have been aggregated into one reportable segment.

Reclassification
Certain amounts in the Company’s prior period consolidated financial statements were reclassified to conform to the current presentation. These reclassifications did not change the results of operations of prior periods. On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted ASU 2016-02, as further described below. As a result, all income earned pursuant to tenant leases is reflected as one line item, “Rental Income,” in the consolidated statements of operations. To facilitate comparability, the Company has reclassified prior period’s lease and non-lease income consistently with the current periods presented.
The table below provides a reconciliation of the prior period presentation of the income statement line items that were reclassified in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations to conform to the current period presentation, pursuant to the adoption of the new lease accounting standard and election of the single component practical expedient:

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In February 2016, the FASB established ASC Topic 842 , Leases (“ASC 842”), by issuing ASU 2016-02, which requires lessees to recognize right-of-use assets and lease liabilities for operating leases on the balance sheet and disclose key information about leasing arrangements. ASC 842 also makes targeted changes to lessor accounting. ASC 842 was subsequently amended by ASU 2018-01, Land Easement Practical Expedient for Transition to Topic 842 (“ASU 2018-01”), ASU 2018-10, Codification Improvements to Topic 842 (“ASU 2018-10”), ASU 2018-11, Targeted Improvements (“ASU 2018-11”) and ASU 2018-20, Leases (Topic 842), Narrow-scope Improvements for Lessors (“ASU 2018-20”). ASC 842 requires a modified retrospective transition approach that was effective in the first quarter of 2019, subject to early adoption. The Company elected an optional transition method that allows entities to initially apply ASC 842 at the adoption date (January 1, 2019) and recognize a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. The Company evaluated the impact of ASC 842 on its leases both as it relates to the Company acting as a lessee and as a lessor. Based on its evaluation, as it relates to the former, the Company elected to apply each of the practical expedients described in ASC 842-10-65-1(f) that allowed, among other things, to not reassess lease classification conclusions or initial direct cost accounting as of December 31, 2018, therefore these leases continue to be accounted for as operating leases. The Company also elected the practical expedient described in ASC 842-20-25-2 not to apply the recognition requirements in ASC 842 to short-term leases and instead, to recognize lease payments in the consolidated statement of operations on a straight-line basis over the lease term. The Company did not experience a material impact on the recognition of leases in the consolidated financial statements because the quantity of leased equipment by the Company is limited and immaterial to the consolidated financial statements. Upon adoption, the Company recognized an initial operating lease right-of-use asset, net, of $18,629 and an operating lease liability, net, of $18,629.
As it relates to the Company as lessor, the Company did not experience a material impact on the recognition of leases in the consolidated financial statements because under ASC 842, lessors continue to account for leases using an approach that is substantially equivalent to historical guidance for sales-type leases, direct financing leases, and operating leases. The Company elected a practical expedient which allows lessors to not separate non-lease components from the lease component when the timing and pattern of transfer for the lease components and non-lease components are the same and if the lease component is classified as an operating lease. As a result, on January 1, 2019, the Company began presenting all rentals and reimbursements from tenants as a single line item rental income within the consolidated statements of operations. As of January 1, 2019, the

Company implemented changes to its business processes and controls related to accounting for and the presentation and disclosure of leases, including the reclassification of tenant reimbursements, previously disclosed as part of tenant reimbursements and other, to rental income, in the consolidated statements of operations.
Under ASC 842, beginning on January 1, 2019, changes in the probability of collecting tenant rental income could result in direct adjustments of rental income and tenant receivables. The Company did not experience a material impact on its rental income and tenant receivables as of the adoption date.
The Company’s rental income consists of fixed rental payments from tenants under operating leases and is recognized on a straight-line basis over the respective operating lease terms. The Company recognizes minimum rent, including rental abatements, concessions and contractual fixed increases attributable to operating leases, on a straight-line basis over the term of the non-cancelable term of the related lease. The Company’s rental income that relates to variable lease payments consists of tenant reimbursements and includes reimbursements for recoverable costs, which are recognized as revenue in the period during which the applicable expenses are incurred and the tenant’s obligation to reimburse the Company arises.
The Company recognized $9,142,782 and $26,886,766 of rental income related to operating lease payments of which $9,142,782 and $26,886,766 was for variable lease payments for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019.
In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (“ASU 2016-13”). ASU 2016-13 requires more timely recording of credit losses on loans and other financial instruments that are not accounted for at fair value through net income (loss), including loans held for investment, held-to-maturity debt securities, trade and other receivables, net investment in leases and other such commitments. ASU 2016-13 requires that financial assets measured at amortized cost be presented at the net amount expected to be collected, through an allowance for credit losses that is deducted from the amortized cost basis. The amendments in ASU 2016-13 require the Company to measure all expected credit losses based upon historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts that affect the collectability of the financial assets and eliminates the “incurred loss” methodology in current GAAP. In November 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-19, Codification Improvements to Topic 326, Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (“ASU 2018-19”), which clarifies that operating lease receivables accounted for under ASC 842 Leases, are not in the scope of the new credit losses guidance. The effective date and transition requirements for this guidance are the same as for ASU 2016-13. ASU 2016-13 is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact this guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures and does not expect a material impact on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures from its adoption.
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement (“ASU 2018-13”). The FASB issued ASU 2018-13 to improve the effectiveness of fair value measurement disclosures by adding, eliminating, and modifying certain disclosure requirements. The issuance of ASU 2018-13 is part of a disclosure framework project. The disclosure framework project’s objective and primary focus are to improve the effectiveness of disclosures in the notes to financial statements by facilitating clear communication of the information required by GAAP that is most important to users of each entity's financial statements. Achieving the objective of improving the effectiveness of the notes to financial statements includes: (1) the development of a framework that promotes consistent decisions by the FASB board about disclosure requirements and (2) the appropriate exercise of discretion by reporting entities. The amendments in ASU 2018-13 modify the disclosure requirements on fair value measurements in Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement, based on the concepts in FASB Concepts Statement, Conceptual Framework for Financial Reporting-Chapter 8: Notes to Financial Statements, including the consideration of costs and benefits. ASU 2018-13 removed certain disclosure requirements under Topic 820 such as the disclosure requirements of the valuation process for level 3 fair value measurements and modified and added certain of the disclosure requirements in Topic 820. ASU 2018-13 requires prospective and retrospective application depending on the amendment and is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact ASU 2018-13 will have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures and believes that

certain disclosures of interest rate cap agreements in its consolidated financial statements may be impacted by the adoption of ASU 2018-13.
The SEC’s Disclosure Update and Simplification rule (Release 33-10532) amends the interim financial statement requirements to require a reconciliation of changes in stockholders’ equity in the notes or as a separate statement. This analysis should reconcile the beginning balance to the ending balance of each caption in stockholders’ equity for each period for which an income statement is required to be filed and comply with the remaining content requirements of Rule 3-04 of Regulation S-X. As a result, registrants will have to provide the reconciliation for both the year-to-date and quarterly periods and comparable periods in Form 10-Q but only for the year-to-date periods in registration statements. The rule does not prescribe the format of the presentation as long as the appropriate periods are provided. Per a Compliance and Disclosure Interpretation (Q 105.09, Exchange Act Forms, 10-Q), “the amendments are effective for all filings made on or after November 5, 2018. In light of the timing of effectiveness of the amendments and proximity of effectiveness to the filing date for most filers’ quarterly reports, the staff would not object if the filer’s first presentation of the changes in the shareholders’ equity is included in its Form 10-Q for the quarter that begins after the effective date of the amendments.” This allowed the Company to adopt the amendment for the Company’s Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2019. The Company adopted this guidance in the nine months ended September 30, 2019 by presenting a reconciliation of changes in stockholders’ equity for the current and prior period as a separate statement.

Operating Leases
As of September 30, 2019, the Company’s real estate portfolio comprised 2,775 apartment homes and was approximately 96.4% leased by a diverse group of residents. The residential lease terms consist of lease durations equal to twelve months or less.
Some residential leases contain provisions to extend the lease agreements, options for early termination after paying a specified penalty and other terms and conditions as negotiated. The Company retains substantially all of the risks and benefits of ownership of the real estate assets leased to tenants. Generally, upon the execution of a lease, the Company requires security deposits from tenants in the form of a cash deposit. Amounts required as security deposits vary depending upon the terms of the respective leases and the creditworthiness of the tenant, but generally are not significant amounts. Therefore, exposure to credit risk exists to the extent that a receivable from a tenant exceeds the amount of its security deposit. Security deposits received in cash related to tenant leases are included in accounts payables and accrued liabilities in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets and totaled $1,175,698 and $1,015,187 as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively.

As of September 30, 2019 and 2018, no tenant represented over 10% of the Company’s annualized base rent.
4.          Other Assets

Refinancing Transactions
On May 31, 2019 (the “Closing Date”), three indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company (each, a “Borrower” and collectively the “Borrowers”) terminated the existing mortgage loans with their lenders for an aggregate principal amount of $87,122,000 and entered into new loan agreements (each, a “Loan Agreement”) with, as applicable, PNC Bank, National Association (“PNC Bank”) and Newmark Knight Frank (“Newmark” and, together with PNC Bank, the “Lenders”) for an aggregate principal amount of $94,861,000 (the “Refinancing Transactions”). Each Borrower entered into a Loan Agreement with the applicable Lender pursuant to the Fannie Mae’s Green Execution Program (the “GEP”), as evidenced by a multifamily note. Pursuant to the GEP, the applicable Lender originates the mortgage loan and then transfers the loan to Fannie Mae. Each Loan Agreement provides for a term loan with a maturity date of June 1, 2029 (the “Maturity Date”), unless the Maturity Date is accelerated in accordance with the Loan terms. Each Loan with Newmark (each a “Newmark Loan” and, collectively the “Newmark Loans”) accrues interest at a fixed rate of 3.73% per annum. The loan with PNC Bank accrues interest at a fixed rate of 3.82% per annum. The entire outstanding principal balance and any accrued and unpaid interest on each of the Loans are due on the Maturity Date. Interest and principal payments on the Newmark Loans are payable monthly in arrears on specified dates as set forth in each Loan Agreement. Monthly payments are due and payable on the first day of each month, commencing July 1, 2019. The Company paid $491,655 in the aggregate in loan origination fees to the Lenders in connection with the Refinancing Transactions, and paid the Advisor a loan coordination fee of $711,459. The Loans are included in the mortgage notes payable table above as of September 30, 2019.

As of September 30, 2019, the compensation expense related to the issuance of the restricted common stock not yet recognized was $50,762. The weighted average remaining term of the restricted common stock was 1.19 years as of September 30, 2019. As of September 30, 2019, no shares of restricted common stock issued to the independent directors had been forfeited.
Preferred Stock
The Charter also provides the Company’s board of directors with the authority to issue one or more classes or series of preferred stock, and prior to the issuance of such shares of preferred stock, the board of directors shall have the power from time to time to classify or reclassify, in one or more series, any unissued shares and designate the preferences, rights and privileges of such shares of preferred stock. The Company’s board of directors is authorized to amend the Charter without the approval of the stockholders to increase the aggregate number of authorized shares of capital stock or the number of shares of any class or series that the Company has authority to issue. As of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, no shares of the Company’s preferred stock were issued and outstanding.
Distribution Reinvestment Plan
The Company’s board of directors approved the DRP through which common stockholders could elect to reinvest an amount equal to the distributions declared on their shares of common stock in additional shares of the Company’s common stock in lieu of receiving cash distributions. The purchase price per Class A, Class R and Class T share of common stock under the DRP was initially $23.75, $22.50 and $22.62, respectively. On October 9, 2018, the Company’s board of directors approved a price per Class A, Class R and Class T share of common stock for the DRP of $22.54, effective November 1, 2018. The Company’s board of directors elected to suspend the DRP with respect to distributions that accrue after February 1, 2019. As a result, all distributions beginning with distributions that accrued in February 2019 are paid in cash. The Company’s board of directors may, from time to time in its sole discretion, reinstate the DRP, although there is no assurance as to if or when this will happen.
No sales commissions or dealer manager fees were payable on shares sold through the DRP. The Company’s board of directors may amend, suspend or terminate the DRP at its discretion at any time upon ten days’ notice to the Company’s stockholders.

(3) The purchase price per share for shares repurchased upon the death or disability of a stockholder will be equal to the average issue price per share for all of the stockholder’s shares. The required one-year holding period does not apply to repurchases requested within 270 days after the death or disability of a stockholder.
The purchase price per share for shares repurchased pursuant to the Company’s share repurchase program will be further reduced by the aggregate amount of net proceeds per share, if any, distributed to the Company’s stockholders prior to the repurchase date as a result of the sale of one or more of the Company’s assets that constitutes a return of capital distribution as a result of such sales.
Repurchases of shares of the Company’s common stock will be made quarterly upon written request to the Company at least 15 days prior to the end of the applicable quarter. Repurchase requests will be honored approximately 30 days following the end of the applicable quarter (the “Repurchase Date”). Stockholders may withdraw their repurchase request at any time up to three business days prior to the Repurchase Date.

In connection with the proposed Merger, on August 5, 2019, the board of directors approved the Amended and Restated Share Repurchase Plan (the “Amended & Restated SRP”), which became effective September 5, 2019, and applied with repurchases made on repurchase dates (as defined in the Amended & Restated SRP) subsequent to the effective date of the Amended & Restated SRP. Under the Amended & Restated SRP, the Company will only repurchase shares of common stock in connection with the death or qualifying disability (as defined in the Amended & Restated SRP) of a stockholder, subject to certain terms and conditions specified in the Amended & Restated SRP.
The Company is not obligated to repurchase shares of its common stock under the share repurchase program. The share repurchase program limits the number of shares to be repurchased in any calendar year to the lesser of (1) 5% of the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the prior calendar year and (2) those that could be funded from the net proceeds from the sale of shares under the DRP in the prior calendar year, plus such additional funds as may be reserved for that purpose by the Company’s board of directors. Such sources of funds could include cash on hand, cash available from borrowings and cash from liquidations of securities investments as of the end of the applicable month, to the extent that such funds are not otherwise dedicated to a particular use, such as working capital, cash distributions to stockholders or purchases of real estate assets. There is no fee in connection with a repurchase of shares of the Company’s common stock pursuant to the Company’s share repurchase program.

As of September 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company had outstanding and unfulfilled repurchase requests of 2,688 (pursuant to the Amended & Restated SRP) and 3,857 shares of common stock and recorded $64,000 and $81,708 in accounts payable and accrued liabilities on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets related to these unfulfilled repurchase requests, all of which were repurchased on the October 31, 2019 and 2018 repurchase dates, respectively.
The Company cannot guarantee that the funds set aside for the share repurchase program will be sufficient to accommodate all repurchase requests made in any quarter. In the event that the Company does not have sufficient funds available to repurchase all of the shares of the Company’s common stock for which repurchase requests have been submitted in any quarter, such outstanding repurchase requests will automatically roll over to the subsequent quarter and priority will be given to redemption requests in the case of the death or disability of a stockholder. If the Company repurchases less than all of the shares subject to a repurchase request in any quarter, with respect to any shares which have not been repurchased, a stockholder can withdraw the stockholder’s request for repurchase. Pending requests will be honored among all requests for redemptions in any given repurchase period as follows: first, pro rata as to repurchases sought upon a stockholder’s death or disability; and, next, pro rata as to other repurchase requests. Shares repurchased under the share repurchase program to satisfy the required minimum distribution requirements under the Internal Revenue Code applicable to retirement benefit plans and IRAs will be repurchased on or after the first anniversary of the date of purchase of such shares at 100% of the purchase price or at 100% of the estimated value per share, as applicable.
The Company’s board of directors may, in its sole discretion, amend, suspend or terminate the share repurchase program at any time upon 30 days’ notice to its stockholders if it determines that the funds available to fund the share repurchase program are needed for other business or operational purposes or that amendment, suspension or termination of the share repurchase program is in the best interest of the Company’s stockholders. Therefore, a stockholder may not have the opportunity to make a repurchase request prior to any potential termination of the Company’s share repurchase program. The share repurchase program will terminate in the event that a secondary market develops for the Company’s shares of common stock.
For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company reclassified $667,887 and $2,951,937, net of $667,887 and $1,923,283 of fulfilled repurchase requests pursuant to the share repurchase program from temporary equity to permanent equity, which are included as additional paid-in capital in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets. Pursuant to the share repurchase program for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company reclassified $1,241,466 and $2,804,736, net of $67,221 and $514,061 of fulfilled repurchase requests, respectively, from permanent equity to temporary equity, which are included as redeemable common stock on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
Distributions
The Company’s long-term policy is to pay distributions solely from cash flow from operations. Further, because the Company may receive income from interest or rents at various times during the Company’s fiscal year and because the Company may need cash flow from operations during a particular period to fund capital expenditures and other expenses, the Company’s expectation during its operational stage is that it will continue to declare distributions in anticipation of cash flow that the Company expects to receive during a later period, and the Company expects to pay these distributions in advance of its actual receipt of these funds. In these instances, the Company’s board of directors has the authority under its organizational documents, to the extent permitted by Maryland law, to fund distributions from sources such as borrowings, offering proceeds or advances and the deferral of fees and expense reimbursements by the Advisor, in its sole discretion. If the Company pays distributions from sources other than cash flow from operations, the Company will have fewer funds available for investments and stockholders’ overall return on their investment in the Company may be reduced.
The Company elected to be taxed as, and qualifies as, a REIT for federal income tax purposes commencing with the taxable year ended December 31, 2016. To qualify as a REIT, the Company must make aggregate annual distributions to its stockholders of at least 90% of the Company’s REIT taxable income (which is computed without regard to the dividends-paid deduction or net capital gain and which does not necessarily equal net income as calculated in accordance with GAAP). If the Company meets the REIT qualification requirements, the Company generally will not be subject to federal income tax on the income that the Company distributes to its stockholders each year.
