DALLAS -- January 15, 2014

Transcontinental Realty Investors, Inc. (TCI) announces the sale of 2400
multifamily units to Atlas Residential. TCI was represented by Pillar Income
Asset Management Inc. on the deal that included nine TCI properties
(approximately 2000 of the 2400 units) with the approximate gross portfolio
price of $190 million. The remaining two properties were managed by Pillar and
owned by an unrelated company. All parties have been working diligently for
several months to facilitate the sale of these assets.

“Though TCI’s strategic focus remains strongly committed to growing our
multi-family portfolio, this deal provided us with an excellent opportunity to
sell off a number of properties in various markets scattered around Texas,”
stated Daniel Moos, CEO and President of TCI. “Timing of this transaction was
of paramount importance in that Atlas Residential was looking to expand their
portfolio at the same time we were looking to prune our asset base.”
