The Home Price Appreciation Amount on our 5% Series A and 5% Series B Participating Preferred Shares through March 31, 2014 was $0.420.  Additionally, based on the weighting among our top 20 markets established under the terms of our 5.5% Series C Participating Preferred Shares, cumulative home price appreciation for the period from December 31, 2013 to March 31, 2014 was 0.68%, resulting in a Home Price Appreciation Factor of 0.34%.

The computation of these amounts appears at the end of this press release and has also been posted to the "For Investors" page of the Company's website (www.americanhomes4rent.com).
