WASHINGTON REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
MARCH 31, 2012
(UNAUDITED)
NOTE 1: NATURE OF BUSINESS
Washington Real Estate Investment Trust (“We” or “WRIT”), a Maryland real estate investment trust, is a self-administered, self-managed equity real estate investment trust, successor to a trust organized in 1960. Our business consists of the ownership and development of income-producing real estate properties in the greater Washington metro region. We own a diversified portfolio of office buildings, medical office buildings, multifamily buildings and retail centers.
Federal Income Taxes
We believe that we qualify as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) under Sections 856-860 of the Internal Revenue Code and intend to continue to qualify as such. To maintain our status as a REIT, we are required to distribute 90% of our ordinary taxable income to our shareholders. When selling properties, we have the option of (a) reinvesting the sales proceeds of properties sold, allowing for a deferral of income taxes on the sale, (b) paying out capital gains to the shareholders with no tax to WRIT or (c) treating the capital gains as having been distributed to the shareholders, paying the tax on the gain deemed distributed and allocating the tax paid as a credit to the shareholders.
Generally, and subject to our ongoing qualification as a REIT, no provisions for income taxes are necessary except for taxes on undistributed REIT taxable income and taxes on the income generated by our taxable REIT subsidiaries (“TRS’s”). Our TRS’s are subject to corporate federal and state income tax on their taxable income at regular statutory rates.
NOTE 2: SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION
Significant Accounting Policies
We have prepared our consolidated financial statements using the accounting policies described in our Annual Report on
Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.
New Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") ASU No. 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement, which requires new disclosures about fair value measurements. Specifically, additional disclosures are required regarding significant unobservable inputs used for Level 3 fair value measurements, a company's valuation process, transfers between Levels 1 and 2, and hierarchy classifications for items whose fair value is not recorded on the balance sheet, but disclosed in the notes. For WRIT, the primary impact of this ASU was to require disclosure of the hierarchy classifications (Level 1, 2 or 3) for our disclosures of the fair values of financial instruments in our notes to the consolidated financial statements. We adopted this ASU on January 1, 2012.
In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, Comprehensive Income, which requires the presentation of comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. This ASU eliminates the option of presenting the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in shareholders' equity. This ASU is effective for fiscal years (including interim periods) beginning after December 15, 2011. We adopted this ASU on January 1, 2012 with the presentation of a separate statement of comprehensive income.

Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include the consolidated accounts of WRIT, its majority-owned subsidiaries and entities in which WRIT has a controlling interest, including where WRIT has been determined to be a primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity (“VIE”). All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
We have prepared the accompanying unaudited financial statements pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Certain information and note disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations, although we believe that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. In addition, in the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the periods presented have been included. These unaudited financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.
Within these notes to the financial statements, we refer to the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011 as the

9


“2012 Quarter” and the “2011 Quarter”, respectively.
Use of Estimates in the Financial Statements
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Reclassifications
Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation due to the reclassification of certain properties as discontinued operations (see note 3 to the consolidated financial statements).
NOTE 3: REAL ESTATE

Variable Interest Entities
On June 15, 2011, we executed a joint venture operating agreement with a real estate development company to develop a mid-rise multifamily property at 650 North Glebe Road in Arlington, Virginia. We estimate the total cost of the project to be $45.0 million, with approximately 70% of the project financed with debt. WRIT is the 90% owner of the joint venture, and will have management and leasing responsibilities when the project is completed and stabilized (defined as 90% of the residential units leased). The real estate development company owns 10% of the joint venture and is responsible for the development and construction of the property.

On November 23, 2011, we executed a joint venture operating agreement with a real estate development company to develop a high-rise multifamily property at 1219 First Street in Alexandria, Virginia. We estimate the total cost of the project to be $95.3 million, with approximately 70% of the project financed with debt. WRIT is the 95% owner of the joint venture and will have management and leasing responsibilities when the project is completed and stabilized. The real estate development company owns 5% of the joint venture and is responsible for the development and construction of the property.

We have determined that the 650 North Glebe Road and 1219 First Street joint ventures are variable interest entities (“VIE's”) primarily based on the fact that the equity investment at risk is not sufficient to permit either entity to finance its activities without additional financial support. We expect that 70% of the total development costs will be financed through debt. We have also determined that WRIT is the primary beneficiary of each VIE due to the fact that WRIT is providing 90% to 95% of the equity contributions and will manage each property after stabilization.

We include the joint venture land acquisitions on our consolidated balance sheets in held for development. As of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the land and capitalized development costs are as follows (in millions):

Discontinued Operations
We dispose of assets (sometimes using tax-deferred exchanges) that no longer meet our long-term strategy or return objectives and where market conditions for sale are favorable. The proceeds from the sales may be reinvested into other properties, used to fund development operations or to support other corporate needs, or distributed to our shareholders. Properties are considered held for sale when they meet the criteria specified by GAAP. Depreciation on these properties is discontinued at that time, but operating revenues, other operating expenses and interest continue to be recognized until the date of sale. We had no properties classified as sold or held for sale as of March 31, 2012.
We sold or classified as held for sale the following properties during 2011:

The total fair values of share grants vested during the 2012 and 2011 Quarters are $0.3 million and $0.3 million, respectively. The total unvested restricted share awards at March 31, 2012 was 319,392 shares, which had a weighted average grant date fair value of $28.40 per share.
As of March 31, 2012, the total compensation cost related to non-vested restricted share awards was $5.1 million, which we expect to recognize as compensation expense over a weighted average period of 25 months.
NOTE 6: FAIR VALUE DISCLOSURES
Financial Assets and Liabilities Measured at Fair Value
For assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis, quantitative disclosures about the fair value measurements are required to be disclosed separately for each major category of assets and liabilities, as follows:
Level 1: Quoted Prices in Active Markets for Identical Assets
Level 2: Significant Other Observable Inputs
Level 3: Significant Unobservable Inputs
The only assets or liabilities we had at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 that are recorded at fair value on a recurring basis are the assets held in the Supplemental Executive Retirement Program (“SERP”). We base the valuations related to this item on assumptions derived from significant other observable inputs and accordingly these valuations fall into Level 2 in the fair value hierarchy. The fair value of these assets at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 is as follows (in millions):

Financial Assets and Liabilities Not Measured at Fair Value
The following disclosures of estimated fair value were determined by management using available market information and established valuation methodologies, including discounted cash flow. Many of these estimates involve significant judgment. The estimated fair value disclosed may not necessarily be indicative of the amounts we could realize on disposition of the financial instruments. The use of different market assumptions or estimation methodologies could have an effect on the estimated fair value amounts. In addition, fair value estimates are made at a point in time and thus, estimates of fair value subsequent to March 31, 2012 may differ significantly from the amounts presented.
Below is a summary of significant methodologies used in estimating fair values and a schedule of fair values at March 31, 2012.
Cash and Cash Equivalents and Restricted Cash
Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash include cash and commercial paper with original maturities of less than 90 days,

12


which are valued at the carrying value, which approximates fair value due to the short maturity of these instruments (Level 1 inputs).
Notes Receivable
We acquired a note receivable ("2445 M Street note") in 2008 with the purchase of 2445 M Street. We estimate the fair value of the 2445 M Street note based on quotes for debt with similar terms and characteristics (Level 2 inputs) or a discounted cash flow methodology using market discount rates (Level 3 inputs) if reliable quotes are not available. We estimated the fair value as of March 31, 2012 with a discounted cash methodology using market discount rates.
Debt
Mortgage notes payable consist of instruments in which certain of our real estate assets are used for collateral. We estimate the fair value of the mortgage notes payable by discounting the contractual cash flows at a rate equal to the relevant treasury rates (with respect to the timing of each cash flow) plus credit spreads estimated through independent comparisons to real estate assets or loans with similar characteristics. Lines of credit payable consist of bank facilities which we use for various purposes including working capital, acquisition funding or capital improvements. The lines of credit advances are priced at a specified rate plus a spread. We estimate the market value based on a comparison of the spreads of the advances to market given the adjustable base rate. We estimate the fair value of the notes payable by discounting the contractual cash flows at a rate equal to the relevant treasury rates (with respect to the timing of each cash flow) plus credit spreads derived using the relevant securities’ market prices. We classify these fair value measurements as Level 3 as we use significant unobservable inputs and management judgment due to the absence of quoted market prices.

NOTE 7: EARNINGS PER COMMON SHARE
We determine “Basic earnings per share” using the two-class method as our unvested restricted share awards have non-forfeitable rights to dividends, and are therefore considered participating securities. We compute basic earnings per share by dividing net income attributable to the controlling interest less the allocation of undistributed earnings to unvested restricted share awards by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period.
We also determine “Diluted earnings per share” under the two-class method with respect to the unvested restricted share awards. We further evaluate any other potentially dilutive securities at the end of the period and adjust the basic earnings per share calculation for the impact of those securities that are dilutive. Our diluted earnings per share calculation includes the dilutive impact of employee stock options based on the treasury stock method and our incentive share awards with performance or market conditions under the contingently issuable method. The diluted earnings per share calculation also considers our operating partnership units and 3.875% convertible notes under the if-converted method. The 3.875% convertible notes, which were repaid in full during the third quarter of 2011, were anti-dilutive for the reporting periods during which they were outstanding.

NOTE 8: SEGMENT INFORMATION
We have four reportable segments: office, medical office, retail and multifamily. Office buildings provide office space for various types of businesses and professions. Medical office buildings provide offices and facilities for a variety of medical services. Retail centers are typically neighborhood grocery store or drug store anchored retail centers. Multifamily properties provide rental housing for individuals and families throughout the Washington metropolitan area.
We evaluate performance based upon operating income from the combined properties in each segment. Our reportable operating segments are consolidations of similar properties. GAAP requires that segment disclosures present the measure(s) used by the chief operating decision maker for purposes of assessing segments’ performance. Net operating income is a key measurement of our segment profit and loss. Net operating income is defined as segment real estate rental revenue less segment real estate expenses.

14


The following tables present revenues and net operating income for the 2012 and 2011 Quarters from these segments, and reconciles net operating income of reportable segments to net income as reported (in thousands):

ITEM 2: MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto appearing in Item 1 of this report and the more detailed information contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2012.
We refer to the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011 as the “2012 Quarter” and the “2011 Quarter”, respectively.
Forward-Looking Statements
This Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements which involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements include statements in this report preceded by, followed by or that include the words “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “anticipate,” “potential,” “project,” “will” and other similar expressions. We claim the protection of the safe harbor for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 for these statements. The following important factors, in addition to those discussed elsewhere in this Form 10-Q, could affect our future results and could cause those results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements: (a) the effects of changes in Federal government spending; (b) the economic health of the greater Washington metro region, or other markets we may enter; (c) the timing and pricing of lease transactions; (d) the effect of the recent credit and financial market conditions; (e) the availability and cost of capital; (f) fluctuations in interest rates; (g) the economic health of our tenants; (h) the supply of competing properties; (i) consumer confidence; (j) unemployment rates; (k) consumer tastes and preferences; (l) our future capital requirements; (m) inflation; (n) compliance with applicable laws, including those concerning the environment and access by persons with disabilities; (o) governmental or regulatory actions and initiatives; (p) changes in general economic and business conditions; (q) terrorist attacks or actions; (r) acts of war; (s) weather conditions; (t) the effects of changes in capital available to the technology and biotechnology sectors of the economy, and (u) other factors discussed under the caption “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 27, 2012. We undertake no obligation to update our forward-looking statements or risk factors to reflect new information, future events, or otherwise.
General
Introductory Matters
We provide our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (“MD&A”) in addition to the accompanying consolidated financial statements and notes to assist readers in understanding our results of operations and financial condition. We organize the MD&A as follows:
Overview. Discussion of our business, operating results, investment activity and capital requirements, and summary of our significant transactions to provide context for the remainder of MD&A.
Results of Operations. Discussion of our financial results comparing the 2012 Quarter to the 2011 Quarter.
Liquidity and Capital Resources. Discussion of our financial condition and analysis of changes in our capital structure and cash flows.
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates. Descriptions of accounting policies that reflect significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of our consolidated financial statements.
When evaluating our financial condition and operating performance, we focus on the following financial and non-financial indicators:
Net operating income (“NOI”), calculated as real estate rental revenue less real estate expenses excluding depreciation and amortization, interest expense and general and administrative expenses. NOI is a non-GAAP supplemental measure to net income.
Funds From Operations (“FFO”), calculated as set forth below under the caption “Funds from Operations.” FFO is a non-GAAP supplemental measure to net income.
Occupancy, calculated as occupied square footage as a percentage of total square footage as of the last day of that period.
Leased percentage, calculated as the percentage of physical net rentable area leased for our commercial segments and percentage of apartments leased for our multifamily segment.
Rental rates.
Leasing activity, including new leases, renewals and expirations.

16


For purposes of evaluating comparative operating performance, we categorize our properties as “same-store”, “non-same-store” or discontinued operations. A “same-store” property is one that was owned for the entirety of the periods being evaluated, is stabilized from an occupancy standpoint and is included in continuing operations. A “non-same-store” property is one that was acquired or placed into service during either of the periods being evaluated and is included in continuing operations. Results for properties sold or held for sale during any of the periods evaluated are classified as discontinued operations.
Overview
Business
Our revenues are derived primarily from the ownership and operation of income-producing properties in the greater Washington metro region. As of March 31, 2012, we owned a diversified portfolio of 71 properties, totaling approximately 8.6 million square feet of commercial space and 2,540 multifamily units, and land held for development. These 71 properties consisted of 26 office properties, 18 medical office properties, 16 retail centers and 11 multifamily properties.

The increases in real estate rental revenue and NOI are due to acquisitions made during 2011. NOI for the same-store portfolio decreased by $0.5 million primarily due to lower occupancy in the office and medical office segments. The lower occupancy reflects continued difficulties in leasing vacant commercial space. For the Washington metro region, overall office vacancy was 12.5% for the 2012 Quarter, up from 12.0% one year ago, according to Delta Associates/Transwestern Commercial Services ("Delta"). We expect real estate market conditions to remain challenging for the remainder of 2012, as, according to Delta, uncertainty over the Federal budget and the broader economic climate is causing hesitancy among tenants and dampening leasing activity.
Capital Requirements
As of March 31, 2012, our unsecured lines of credit had $109.0 million in borrowings outstanding and $0.8 million in letters of credit issued, leaving a remaining borrowing capacity of $365.2 million. Credit Facility No. 1, our $75.0 million unsecured credit facility, matures in June 2012. We currently expect to negotiate a replacement facility in the same or greater amount than the expiring facility. While we anticipate that the interest rate and facility fee of the replacement facility will be higher than the current facility, we do not expect the new terms to have a material adverse effect on our financial results.
Subsequent to the end of the 2012 Quarter, we repaid our $50.0 million of 5.05% unsecured notes on their maturity date of May 1, 2012 using borrowings on our unsecured lines of credit. We have $21.6 million of mortgage notes payable that mature during the remainder of 2012, which we currently expect to pay with some combination of proceeds from new debt, property sales and equity issuances.
Significant Transactions
We summarize below our significant transactions during the 2012 and 2011 Quarters:
2012 Quarter
The execution of new leases for 0.2 million square feet of commercial space (excluding first generation leases at recently-built properties and properties sold or held for sale), with an average rental rate increase of 8.6% over expiring leases.
2011 Quarter
The acquisition of two office buildings for $127.3 million, adding approximately 314,000 square feet. We

17


incurred $1.6 million in acquisition costs related to these purchase transactions.
The execution of new leases for 0.3 million square feet of commercial space (excluding first generation leases at recently-built properties), with an average rental rate increase of 2.8% from expiring leases.
Results of Operations
The discussion that follows is based on our consolidated results of operations for the 2012 and 2011 Quarters. The ability to compare one period to another may be significantly affected by acquisitions completed and dispositions made during those periods. To provide more insight into our operating results, we divide our discussion into two main sections:
Consolidated Results of Operations: Overview analysis of results on a consolidated basis.
Net Operating Income (“NOI”): Detailed analysis of same-store and non-same-store NOI results by segment.

Minimum Base Rent: Minimum base rent increased by $5.7 million in the 2012 Quarter primarily due to acquisitions.
Recoveries from Tenants: Recoveries from tenants increased by $0.8 million in the 2012 Quarter primarily due to acquisitions ($1.1 million), partially offset by a $0.3 million decrease from same-store properties. The same-store decrease was primarily due to lower utilities reimbursements caused by lower occupancy and mild weather.
Provisions for Doubtful Accounts: Provisions for doubtful accounts decreased by $0.4 million in the 2012 Quarter due to lower provisions in the medical office ($0.3 million) and office ($0.1 million) segments.
Lease Termination Fees: Lease termination fees increased by $0.2 million in the 2012 Quarter, primarily in the office segment.
Parking and Other Tenant Charges: Parking and other tenant charges increased by $0.2 million in the 2012 Quarter primarily due to acquisitions.

Real estate expenses as a percentage of revenue were 34.0% and 33.6% for the 2012 and 2011 Quarters, respectively.
Property Operating Expenses: Property operating expenses include utilities, repairs and maintenance, property administration and management, operating services, common area maintenance, property insurance, bad debt and other operating expenses.
Property operating expenses increased by $1.7 million in the 2012 Quarter primarily due to properties acquired in 2011 ($1.6 million), as well as higher administrative expenses ($0.6 million), higher property taxes ($0.3 million) and lower recoveries of bad debt ($0.3 million) at same-store properties. These were partially offset by lower snow removal costs ($0.7 million) and utilities expense ($0.6 million) at same-store properties due to mild weather and lower electricity rates.
Real Estate Taxes: Real estate taxes increased by $1.1 million in the 2012 Quarter primarily due to acquisitions.

Discontinued Operations
We dispose of assets (sometimes using tax-deferred exchanges) that no longer meet our long-term strategy or return objectives and where market conditions for sale are favorable. The proceeds from the sales may be reinvested into other properties, used to fund development operations or to support other corporate needs, or distributed to our shareholders.

Properties we sold during 2011 are as follows:

Net Operating Income
NOI is the primary performance measure we use to assess the results of our operations at the property level. We believe that NOI is useful as a performance measure because, when compared across periods, NOI reflects the impact on operations of trends in occupancy rates, rental rates and operating costs on an unleveraged basis, providing perspective not immediately apparent from net income. NOI excludes certain components from net income in order to provide results more closely related to a property’s results of operations. For example, interest expense is not necessarily linked to the operating performance of a real estate asset. In addition, depreciation and amortization, because of historical cost accounting and useful life estimates, may distort operating performance at the property level. As a result of the foregoing, we provide NOI as a supplement to net income calculated in accordance with GAAP. NOI does not represent net income calculated in accordance with GAAP. As such, it should not be considered an alternative to net income as an indication of our operating performance. A reconciliation of NOI to net income follows.

2009 Medical Office acquisition – Lansdowne Medical Office Building
(2)Discontinued operations include gains on disposals and income from operations for:
2011 held for sale and sold – Dulles Station, Phase I and the Industrial Portfolio
Real estate rental revenue from same-store properties decreased by $0.2 million in the 2012 Quarter primarily due to lower occupancy ($0.7 million) and lower reimbursements of operating expenses ($0.5 million), partially offset by higher rental rates ($0.9 million).
Real estate expenses from same-store properties increased by $0.3 million in the 2012 Quarter as higher administrative expenses

21


($0.6 million), lower recoveries of bad debt ($0.3 million) and higher real estate taxes ($0.3 million) were partially offset by lower utilities ($0.6 million) caused by mild weather and lower electricity rates and lower common area maintenance expenses ($0.4 million).
The decrease in same-store occupancy was the result of difficulties in leasing vacant space in the office and medical office segments. The increase in non-same-store occupancy reflects the acquisitions made during 2011. During the 2012 Quarter, 66.9% of the commercial square footage expiring was renewed as compared to 85.0% in the 2011 Quarter, excluding properties sold or classified as held for sale. During the 2012 Quarter, we executed new leases (excluding first generation leases at recently-built properties) for 217,979 commercial square feet at an average rental rate of $30.29 per square foot, an increase of 8.6%, with average tenant improvements and leasing costs of $31.64 per square foot.

Non-same-store properties include:
2011 acquisitions – 1140 Connecticut Avenue, 1227 25th Street, Braddock Metro Center and John Marshall II
Real estate rental revenue from same-store properties decreased by $0.8 million in the 2012 Quarter primarily due to lower occupancy ($0.7 million) and lower reimbursements for operating expenses ($0.2 million).
Real estate expenses from same-store properties increased by $0.5 million primarily due to lower recoveries of bad debt ($0.3 million), higher real estate taxes ($0.3 million) and higher administrative costs ($0.2 million), partially offset by lower utilities ($0.4 million).
The decrease in same-store occupancy was primarily due to lower occupancy at 7900 Westpark Drive, West Gude Drive and 6110 Executive Boulevard. The non-same-store occupancy of 88.1% reflects high occupancy at Braddock Metro Center and John Marshall II, partially offset by 1227 25th Street and 1140 Connecticut Avenue, which were 71.9% and 77.6% occupied at the end of the 2012 Quarter, respectively. During the 2012 Quarter, 57.0% of the square footage that expired was renewed compared to 33.8% in the 2011 Quarter, excluding properties sold or classified as held for sale.

Non-same-store properties include:
2009 acquisition – Lansdowne Medical Office Building
Real estate rental revenue from same-store properties increased by $0.2 million in 2012 Quarter due to lower reserves for uncollectible revenue ($0.3 million) and higher rental rates ($0.2 million), partially offset by lower reimbursements for operating expenses ($0.2 million) and lower occupancy ($0.1 million).
Real estate expenses from same-store properties slightly increased in the 2012 Quarter.
The decrease in same-store occupancy was driven by lower occupancy at Woodholme Medical Center, 8503 Arlington Boulevard and Shady Grove Medical Center II. The increase in non-same-store occupancy to 35.9% in the 2012 Quarter reflects the continued lease-up of Lansdowne Medical Office Building, which was newly-constructed and vacant when purchased during the fourth quarter of 2009. During the 2012 Quarter, 66.3% of the square footage that expired was renewed compared to 84.3% in the 2011 Quarter. During the 2012 Quarter, we executed new leases (excluding first generation leases) for 69,171 square feet of medical office space at an average rental rate of $29.94, an increase of 5.8%, with average tenant improvements and leasing costs of $22.94 per square foot.

Non-same-store properties include:

2010 acquisition – Gateway Overlook
Real estate rental revenue from same-store properties slightly decreased in the 2012 Quarter as lower reimbursements for operating expenses ($0.2 million) and higher reserves for uncollectible revenue ($0.1 million) were offset by higher occupancy ($0.2 million) and rental rates ($0.1 million).
Real estate expenses from same-store properties decreased by $0.4 million in the 2012 Quarter primarily due to lower snow removal costs attributable to milder weather.
The increase in same-store occupancy was driven by higher occupancy at Montrose Shopping Center and Wheaton Park, partially offset by lower occupancy at the Centre at Hagerstown. The non-same-store occupancy of 98.7% reflects the acquisitions of Olney Village Center and Gateway Overlook. During the 2012 Quarter, 91.0% of the square footage that expired was renewed compared to 99.6% in the 2011 Quarter. During the 2012 Quarter, we executed new leases for 12,574 square feet of retail space at an average rental rate of $15.13, an increase of 7.1%, with average tenant improvements and leasing costs of $0.73 per square foot.
