Steadfast Apartment REIT, Inc. (the “Company”) was formed on August 22, 2013, as a Maryland corporation that elected to qualify as a real estate investment trust (“REIT”) commencing with the taxable year ended December 31, 2014. On September 3, 2013, the Company was initially capitalized with the sale of 13,500 shares of common stock to Steadfast REIT Investments, LLC (the “Sponsor”) at a purchase price of $15.00 per share for an aggregate purchase price of $202,500. Steadfast Apartment Advisor, LLC (the “Advisor”), a Delaware limited liability company formed on August 22, 2013, invested $1,000 in the Company in exchange for 1,000 shares of non-participating, non-voting convertible stock (the “Convertible Stock”) as described in Note 6 (Stockholders’ Equity).
The Company owns and operates a diverse portfolio of multifamily properties located in targeted markets throughout the United States. As of June 30, 2019, the Company owned 34 multifamily properties comprising a total of 11,601 apartment homes and one parcel of land held for the development of apartment homes. The Company may acquire additional multifamily properties or pursue multifamily developments in the future. For more information on the Company’s real estate portfolio, see Note 3 (Real Estate).

On December 30, 2013, the Company commenced its initial public offering to offer a maximum of 66,666,667 shares of common stock for sale to the public at an initial price of $15.00 per share (with discounts available for certain categories of purchasers) (the “Primary Offering”). The Company also registered up to 7,017,544 shares of common stock for sale pursuant to the Company’s distribution reinvestment plan (the “DRP,” and together with the Primary Offering, the “Public Offering”) at an initial price of $14.25 per share. The Company terminated its Public Offering on March 24, 2016, but continues to offer shares of common stock pursuant to the DRP. As of the termination of the Public Offering, the Company had sold 48,625,651 shares of common stock in the Public Offering for gross proceeds of $724,849,631, including 1,011,561 shares of common stock issued pursuant to the DRP for gross offering proceeds of $14,414,752. As of June 30, 2019, the Company had issued 53,615,560 shares of common stock for gross offering proceeds of $799,097,238, including 6,001,533 shares of common stock issued pursuant to the DRP for gross offering proceeds of $88,662,359.
On March 12, 2019, the Company’s board of directors approved an estimated value per share of the Company’s common stock of $15.84 as of December 31, 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 of $15.84, effective April 1, 2019. The Company’s board of directors may again, from time to time, in its sole discretion, change the price at which the Company offers shares pursuant to the DRP to reflect changes in the Company’s estimated value per share and other factors that the Company’s board of directors deems relevant. 
The business of the Company is externally managed by the Advisor, pursuant to the Advisory Agreement dated December 13, 2013, by and among the Company, Steadfast Apartment REIT 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 December 13, 2019. Subject to certain restrictions and limitations, the Advisor manages the Company’s day-to-day operations, manages the Company’s portfolio of properties, 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 certain advisory services to the Company on behalf of the Advisor. Stira Capital Markets Group, LLC (formerly known as Steadfast Capital Markets Group, LLC) (the “Dealer Manager”), an affiliate of the Advisor, served as the dealer manager for the Public Offering. The Dealer Manager was responsible for marketing the Company’s shares of common stock offered pursuant to the Public Offering. The Advisor, along with the Dealer Manager, 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. The Company and Steadfast Apartment REIT Limited Partner, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into a Limited Partnership Agreement (the “Partnership Agreement”) on September 3, 2013.
As the Company accepted subscriptions for shares of its common stock, the Company transferred substantially all of the net offering proceeds from its 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.
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 (“SEC”) Disclosure Update and Simplification rule (Release 33-10532), as further described 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 14, 2019. 
Principles of Consolidation and Basis of Presentation
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, the Operating Partnership and its 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 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 six months ended June 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 herein 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.

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, distributions payable, due to affiliates and notes payable.
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 notes payable, net are classified as Level 3 within the fair value hierarchy.
The fair value of the 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 June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the fair value of the notes payable was $1,096,206,883 and $1,042,358,884, respectively, compared to the carrying value of $1,050,210,840 and $1,050,155,743, respectively.
Distribution Policy
The Company elected to be taxed, and currently qualifies, as a REIT commencing with the taxable year ended December 31, 2014. 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). Distributions declared during the six months ended June 30, 2019, were based on daily record dates and calculated at a rate of $0.002466 per share per day during the period from January 1, 2019 through June 30, 2019.
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 six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company

declared distributions totaling $0.224 and $0.446 per share of common stock, respectively. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company declared distributions totaling $0.224 and $0.446 per 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 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 and convertible 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.
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.
Reclassifications
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 those 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 the 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 our 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 the Company, 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 $7,656 and an operating lease liability, net, of $7,720.
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 $42,887,126 and $85,204,046 of rental income related to operating lease payments of which $4,332,509 and $8,410,436 was for variable lease payments for the three and six months ended June 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 stockholder’ 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 first quarter 2019 filing. The Company first adopted this guidance in the three months ended March 31, 2019, by presenting a reconciliation of changes in stockholders’ equity for the current and prior period as a separate statement.
3.          Real Estate
As of June 30, 2019, the Company owned 34 multifamily properties comprising a total of 11,601 apartment homes and one parcel of land held for the development of apartment homes. The total contract acquisition price of the Company’s real estate portfolio was $1,501,958,217, including development costs. As of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company’s portfolio was approximately 93.8% and 93.9% occupied and the average monthly rent was $1,189 and $1,163, respectively.

Operating Leases
As of June 30, 2019, the Company’s real estate portfolio comprised 11,601 residential apartment homes and was 96.0% 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

Distribution Reinvestment Plan
The Company’s board of directors has approved the DRP through which common stockholders may 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 share under the DRP was initially $14.25. On March 12, 2019, March 14, 2018 and February 14, 2017, the Company’s board of directors approved a price per share for the DRP of $15.84, $15.18 and $14.85, effective April 1, 2019, April 1, 2018 and March 1, 2017, respectively, in connection with the determination of an estimated value per share of the Company’s common stock.
The Company’s board of directors may again, in its sole discretion, from time to time, change this price based upon changes in the Company’s estimated value per share and other factors that the Company’s board of directors deems relevant.
No sales commissions or dealer manager fees are 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. Following any termination of the DRP, all subsequent distributions to stockholders will be made in cash.
Share Repurchase Plan and Redeemable Common Stock
The Company’s share repurchase plan may provide an opportunity for stockholders to have their shares of common stock repurchased by the Company, subject to certain restrictions and limitations. No shares can be repurchased under the Company’s share repurchase plan until after the first anniversary of the date of purchase of such shares; provided, however, that this holding period shall not apply to repurchases requested within two years after the death or disability of a stockholder.
From March 29, 2016, the date the Company first published an estimated value per share, until April 14, 2018, the purchase price for shares repurchased under the Company’s share repurchase plan was as follows:

(3)
The required one-year holding period does not apply to repurchases requested within two years after the death or disability of a stockholder.
(4)
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 purchase price per share for shares repurchased pursuant to the Company’s share repurchase plan 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 (defined below) as a result of the sale of one or more of the Company’s assets that constitutes a return of capital as a result of such sales.
Repurchases of shares of the Company’s common stock are made quarterly upon written request to the Company at least 15 days prior to the end of the applicable quarter. Repurchase requests are honored approximately 30 days following the end of the applicable quarter (“Repurchase Date”). Stockholders may withdraw their repurchase request at any time up to three business days prior to the Repurchase Date.
The Company is not obligated to repurchase shares of its common stock under the share repurchase plan. The share repurchase plan 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. The Company’s board of directors has further limited the amount of shares that may be repurchased pursuant to the share repurchase plan to $2,000,000 per quarter. There is no fee in connection with a repurchase of shares of the Company’s common stock pursuant to the Company’s share repurchase plan. As of June 30, 2019, the Company had recognized repurchases payable of $2,000,000, which is included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

2018, the Company repurchased a total of 144,440 and 346,610 shares with a total repurchase value of $2,000,000 and $4,886,216, and received requests for the repurchase of 231,575 and 541,527 shares with a total repurchase value of $3,212,937 and $7,475,664, respectively.
As of June 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company’s total outstanding repurchase requests received that were subject to the Company’s limitations on repurchases were 1,778,162 shares and 379,816 shares, respectively, with a total net repurchase value of $25,978,431 and $5,224,754, respectively.
The Company cannot guarantee that the funds set aside for the share repurchase plan 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, priority will be given to repurchase 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, the Company will treat the shares that have not been repurchased as a request for repurchase in the following quarter pursuant to the limitations of the share repurchase plan and when sufficient funds are available, unless the stockholder withdraws the request for repurchase. Such pending requests will be honored among all requests for repurchases 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.
The Company’s board of directors may, in its sole discretion, amend, suspend or terminate the share repurchase plan at any time upon 30 days’ notice to its stockholders if it determines that the funds available to fund the share repurchase plan are needed for other business or operational purposes or that amendment, suspension or termination of the share repurchase plan 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 or suspension of the Company’s share repurchase plan. The share repurchase plan will terminate in the event that a secondary market develops for the Company’s shares of common stock.
Pursuant to the share repurchase plan, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company had no amounts to reclassify from temporary equity to permanent equity. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, the Company reclassified $0 and $37,028,102, net of $2,000,000 and $4,886,216 of fulfilled redemption requests, respectively, from temporary equity to permanent equity, which is included in additional paid-in capital on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
Distributions
The Company’s long-term goal is to pay distributions solely from cash flow from operations. However, 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 expects that at times during the Company’s operational stage, the Company will 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. 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. The Company has not established a limit on the amount of proceeds it may use to fund distributions from sources other than cash flow from operations. If the Company pays distributions from sources other than cash flow from operations, the Company will have fewer funds available and stockholders’ overall return on their investment in the Company may be reduced.
To maintain the Company’s qualification as a REIT, the Company must make aggregate annual distributions to its stockholders of at least 90% of its 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.

Investment Management Fee
The Company pays the Advisor a monthly investment management fee equal to one-twelfth of 1.0% of (1) the cost of investments in real properties and real estate-related assets acquired directly by the Company or (2) the Company’s allocable cost of each investment in real property or real estate related asset acquired through a joint venture. The investment management fee is calculated including the amount actually paid or budgeted to fund acquisition fees, acquisition expenses, cost of development, construction or improvement and any debt attributable to such investments, or the Company’s proportionate share thereof in the case of investments made through joint ventures.
Acquisition Fees and Expenses
The Company pays the Advisor an acquisition fee equal to 1.0% of the cost of investment, which includes the amount actually paid or budgeted to fund the acquisition, origination, development, construction or improvement of any real property or real estate-related asset acquired. In addition to acquisition fees, the Company reimburses the Advisor for amounts directly incurred by the Advisor and amounts the Advisor pays to third parties in connection with the selection, evaluation, acquisition and development of a property or acquisition of real estate-related assets, whether or not the Company ultimately acquires the property or the real estate-related assets.
The Charter limits the Company’s ability to pay acquisition fees if the total of all acquisition fees and expenses relating to the purchase would exceed 4.5% of the contract purchase price. Under the Charter, a majority of the Company’s board of directors, including a majority of the independent directors, is required to approve any acquisition fees (or portion thereof) that would cause the total of all acquisition fees and expenses relating to an acquisition to exceed 4.5% of the contract purchase price. In connection with the purchase of securities, the acquisition fee may be paid to an affiliate of the Advisor that is registered as a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) member broker-dealer if applicable FINRA rules would prohibit the payment of the acquisition fee to a firm that is not a registered broker-dealer. 
Loan Coordination Fee
The Company pays the Advisor or its affiliate a loan coordination fee equal to 1.0% of the initial amount of the new debt financed or outstanding debt assumed in connection with the acquisition, development, construction, improvement or origination of a property or a real estate-related asset. In addition, in connection with any financing or the refinancing of any debt (in each case, other than identified at the time of the acquisition of a property or a real estate-related asset), the Company pays the Advisor or its affiliate a loan coordination fee equal to 0.75% of the amount of debt financed or refinanced.
Property Management Fees and Expenses
The Company has entered into property management agreements (each, as amended from time to time, a “Property Management Agreement”) with Steadfast Management Company, Inc., an affiliate of the Sponsor (the “Property Manager”), in connection with the management of each of the Company’s properties. At June 30, 2019, the property management fee payable

with respect to each property under the Property Management Agreements ranged from 2.50% to 3.0% of the annual gross revenue collected at the property, as determined by the Advisor and approved by a majority of the Company’s board of directors, including a majority of the independent directors. Each Property Management Agreement has an initial one-year term and continues thereafter on a month-to-month basis unless either party gives 60-days’ prior notice of its desire to terminate the Property Management Agreement, provided that the Company may terminate the Property Management Agreement at any time upon a determination of gross negligence, willful misconduct or bad acts of the Property Manager or its employees or upon an uncured breach of the Property Management Agreement upon 30 days’ prior written notice to the Property Manager.
In addition to the property management fee, the Property Management Agreements also specify certain other reimbursements payable to the Property Manager for benefit administration, information technology infrastructure, licenses, support and training services and capital expenditures. The Company also reimburses the Property Manager for the salaries and related benefits of on-site property management employees.
Construction Management Fees and Expenses 
The Company has entered into construction management agreements (each, a “Construction Management Agreement”) with Pacific Coast Land & Construction, Inc., an affiliate of the Sponsor (the “Construction Manager”), in connection with capital improvements and renovation or value-enhancement projects for certain properties the Company acquires. The construction management fee payable with respect to each property under the Construction Management Agreements ranges from 8.0% to 12.0% of the costs of the improvements for which the Construction Manager has planning and oversight authority. Generally, each Construction Management Agreement can be terminated by either party with 30 days’ prior written notice to the other party. Construction management fees are capitalized to the respective real estate properties in the period in which they are incurred as such costs relate to capital improvements and renovations for apartment homes taken out of service while they undergo the planned renovation.
The Company may also reimburse the Construction Manager for the salaries and related benefits of certain of its employees for time spent working on capital improvements and renovations.
Development Services Agreement
In some instances, the Company may enter into a Development Services Agreement with Steadfast Multifamily Development, Inc., an affiliate of the Advisor, (the “Developer”), in connection with a development project, pursuant to which the Developer will receive a development fee and reimbursement for certain expenses for overseeing the development project. The Company entered into a Development Services Agreement with the Developer in connection with the Victory Station development project that provided for a development fee equal to 4% of the hard and soft costs of the development project as specified in the Development Services Agreement. 75% of the development fee will be paid in 14 monthly installments and the remaining 25% will be paid upon delivery by the Developer to us of a certificate of occupancy. As of June 30, 2019, no amounts had been paid pursuant to the Development Services Agreement.
Property Insurance
The Company deposits amounts with an affiliate of the Sponsor to fund a prepaid insurance deductible account to cover the cost of required insurance deductibles across all properties of the Company and other affiliated entities. Upon filing a major claim, proceeds from the insurance deductible account may be used by the Company or another affiliate of the Sponsor. In addition, the Company deposits amounts with an affiliate of the Sponsor to cover the cost of property and property related insurance across certain properties of the Company.
Other Operating Expense Reimbursement
In addition to the various fees paid to the Advisor, the Company is obligated to pay directly or reimburse all expenses incurred by the Advisor in providing services to the Company, including the Company’s allocable share of the Advisor’s overhead, such as rent, employee costs, utilities and information technology costs. The Company will not reimburse the Advisor for employee costs in connection with services for which the Advisor or its affiliates receive acquisition fees or disposition fees or for the salaries the Advisor pays to the Company’s executive officers.

The Charter limits the Company’s total operating expenses during any four fiscal quarters to the greater of 2% of the Company’s average invested assets or 25% of the Company’s net income for the same period (the “2%/25% Limitation”). The Company may reimburse the Advisor, at the end of each fiscal quarter, for operating expenses incurred by the Advisor; provided, however, that the Company shall not reimburse the Advisor at the end of any fiscal quarter for operating expenses that exceed the 2%/25% Limitation unless the independent directors have determined that such excess expenses were justified based on unusual and non-recurring factors. The Advisor must reimburse the Company for the amount by which the Company’s operating expenses for the preceding four fiscal quarters then ended exceed the 2%/25% Limitation, unless approved by the independent directors. For purposes of determining the 2%/25% Limitation amount, “average invested assets” means the average monthly book value of the Company’s assets invested directly or indirectly in equity interests and loans secured by real estate during the 12-month period before deducting depreciation, bad debts reserves or other non-cash reserves. “Total operating expenses” means all expenses paid or incurred by the Company that are in any way related to the Company’s operation, including the Company’s allocable share of Advisor overhead, but excluding (a) the expenses of raising capital such as organization and offering expenses, legal, audit, accounting, underwriting, brokerage, listing, registration and other fees, printing and other such expenses and taxes incurred in connection with the issuance, distribution, transfer, listing and registration of shares of the Company’s common stock; (b) interest payments; (c) taxes; (d) non-cash expenditures such as depreciation, amortization and bad debt reserves; (e) reasonable incentive fees based on the gain in the sale of the Company’s assets; (f) acquisition fees and acquisition expenses (including expenses relating to potential acquisitions that the Company does not close) and investment management fees; (g) real estate commissions on the resale of investments; and (h) other expenses connected with the acquisition, disposition, management and ownership of investments (including the costs of foreclosure, insurance premiums, legal services, maintenance, repair and improvement of real property).
As of June 30, 2019, the Company’s total operating expenses, as defined above, did not exceed the 2%/25% Limitation.
Disposition Fee
If the Advisor or its affiliates provide a substantial amount of services in connection with the sale of a property or real estate-related asset as determined by a majority of the Company’s independent directors, the Company will pay the Advisor or its affiliates a fee equivalent to one-half of the brokerage commissions paid, but in no event to exceed 1% of the sales price of each property or real estate-related asset sold. To the extent the disposition fee is paid upon the sale of any assets other than real property, it will be included as an operating expense for purposes of the 2%/25% Limitation. In connection with the sale of securities, the disposition fee may be paid to an affiliate of the Advisor that is registered as a FINRA member broker-dealer if applicable FINRA rules would prohibit the payment of the disposition fee to a firm that is not a registered broker-dealer. As of June 30, 2019, the Company had not sold or otherwise disposed of any properties or any real estate-related assets. Accordingly, the Company had not incurred any disposition fees as of June 30, 2019
Selling Commissions and Dealer Manager Fees
The Company entered into the Dealer Manager Agreement with the Dealer Manager in connection with the Public Offering. The Company paid the Dealer Manager up to 7% and 3% of the gross offering proceeds from the Primary Offering as selling commissions and dealer manager fees, respectively. The Dealer Manager reallowed 100% of sales commissions earned to participating broker-dealers. The Dealer Manager could also reallow to any participating broker-dealer a portion of the dealer manager fee that was attributable to that participating broker-dealer for certain marketing costs of that participating broker-dealer. The Dealer Manager negotiated the reallowance of the dealer manager fee on a case-by-case basis with each participating broker-dealer subject to various factors associated with the cost of the marketing program. The Company allowed a participating broker-dealer to elect to receive the 7% selling commissions at the time of sale or elect to have the selling commission paid on a trailing basis. A participating broker-dealer that elected to receive a trailing selling commission is paid as follows: 3% at the time of sale and the remaining 4% paid ratably (1% per year) on each of the first four anniversaries of the sale. A reduced selling commission and dealer manager fee was paid in connection with volume discounts and certain other categories of sales. No selling commissions or dealer manager fee was paid with respect to shares of common stock issued pursuant to the DRP. The Company terminated the Public Offering on March 24, 2016, and as of June 30, 2019 and

December 31, 2018, expects to pay trailing selling commissions of $185,954 and $299,952, respectively, which were charged to additional paid-in capital and included within amounts due to affiliates in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
8.          Incentive Award Plan and Independent Director Compensation
The Company has adopted an incentive award plan (the “Incentive Award Plan”) that provides for the grant of equity awards to its employees, directors and consultants and those of the Company’s affiliates. The Incentive Award Plan authorizes the grant of non-qualified and incentive stock options, restricted stock awards, restricted stock units, stock appreciation rights, dividend equivalents and other stock-based awards or cash-based awards.
Under the Company’s independent directors’ compensation plan, which is a sub-plan of the Incentive Award Plan, each of the Company’s independent directors received 3,333 shares of restricted common stock once the Company raised $2,000,000 in gross offering proceeds in the Public Offering. Each subsequent independent director that joins the Company’s board of directors receives 3,333 shares of restricted common stock upon election to the Company’s board of directors. In addition, on the date following an independent director’s re-election to the Company’s board of directors, he or she receives 1,666 shares of restricted common stock. One-fourth of the shares of restricted common stock generally vest and become non-forfeitable upon issuance and the remaining portion will vest in three equal annual installments beginning on the date of grant and ending on the third anniversary of the date of grant; provided, however, that the restricted stock will become fully vested and become non-forfeitable on the earlier to occur of (1) the termination of the independent director’s service as a director due to his or her death or disability or (2) a change in control of the Company. These restricted stock awards entitle the holders to participate in distributions even if the shares are not fully vested.
The Company recorded stock-based compensation expense of $13,896 and $27,792 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and $13,839 and $27,678 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively, related to the independent directors’ restricted common stock.
In addition to the stock awards, the Company pays each of its independent directors an annual retainer of $55,000, prorated for any partial term (the audit committee chairperson receives an additional $10,000 annual retainer, prorated for any partial term). The independent directors are also paid for attending meetings as follows: (i) $2,500 for each board meeting attended in person, (ii) $1,500 for each committee meeting attended in person in such director’s capacity as a committee member, (iii) $1,000 for each board meeting attended via teleconference (not to exceed $4,000 for any one set of meetings attended on any given day). All directors also receive reimbursement of reasonable out of pocket expenses incurred in connection with attendance at meetings of the board of directors. Director compensation is an operating expense of the Company that is subject to the operating expense reimbursement obligation of the Advisor discussed in Note 7 (Related Party Arrangements). The Company recorded an operating expense of $99,750 and $252,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, and $61,750 and $117,500 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, related to the independent directors’ annual retainer and attending board and committee meetings, which is included in general and administrative expenses in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. As of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, $99,750 and $151,750, respectively, related to the independent directors’ annual retainer and board meetings attendance is included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities in the consolidated balance sheets.
9.          Commitments and Contingencies
Economic Dependency 
The Company is dependent on the Advisor for certain services that are essential to the Company, including the identification, evaluation, negotiation, purchase and disposition of real estate and real estate-related investments; management of the daily operations of the Company’s real estate and real estate-related investment portfolio; and other general and administrative responsibilities. In the event that the Advisor is unable to provide such services, the Company will be required to obtain such services from other sources. The Company may not be able to retain services from such other sources on favorable terms or at all.

Concentration of Credit Risk
The geographic concentration of the Company’s portfolio makes it particularly susceptible to adverse economic developments in the Atlanta, Georgia, Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas and Nashville, Tennessee apartment markets. Any adverse economic or real estate developments in these markets, such as business layoffs or downsizing, relocations of businesses, increased competition from other apartment communities, decrease in demand for apartments or any other changes, could adversely affect the Company’s operating results and its ability to make distributions to stockholders.
Environmental
As an owner of real estate, the Company is subject to various environmental laws of federal, state and local governments. The Company is not aware of any environmental liability that could have a material adverse effect on its financial condition or results of operations. However, changes in applicable environmental laws and regulations, the uses and conditions of properties in the vicinity of the Company’s properties, the activities of its tenants and other environmental conditions of which the Company is unaware with respect to the properties could result in future environmental liabilities.
Legal Matters
From time to time, the Company is subject, or party, to legal proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of its business. Management is not aware of any legal proceedings of which the outcome is reasonably likely to have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations or financial condition nor is the Company aware of any such legal proceedings contemplated by government agencies.
10.          Derivative Financial Instruments
The Company uses interest rate derivatives with the objective of managing exposure to interest rate movements thereby minimizing the effect of interest rate changes and the effect they could have on future cash flows. Interest rate cap agreements are used to accomplish this objective. The following table provides the terms of the Company’s interest rate derivative instruments that were in effect at June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018:

The interest rate cap agreements are not designated as effective cash flow hedges. Accordingly, the Company records any changes in the fair value of the interest rate cap agreements as interest expense. The change in the fair value of the interest rate cap agreements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019, resulted in an unrealized loss of $20,107 and $199,723 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, resulted in an unrealized gain of $131,281 and $578,894, respectively, which is included in interest expense in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, the Company did not acquire any interest rate cap agreements or receive any settlement proceeds. The fair value of the interest rate cap agreements of $8,046 and $207,769 as of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively, is included in other assets on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

Proposed Mergers with Steadfast Income REIT, Inc. and Steadfast Apartment REIT, Inc.
On August 5, 2019, the Company entered into the Merger Agreements (as defined herein) to acquire each of Steadfast Income REIT, Inc. (“SIR”) and Steadfast Apartment REIT III, Inc. (“STAR III”). Both mergers are stock-for-stock transactions whereby each of SIR and STAR III will be merged into a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. The consummation of the Company’s merger with SIR is not contingent upon the completion of the merger with STAR III, and the consummation of the Company’s merger with STAR III is not contingent upon the completion of the Company’s merger with SIR.
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. If the mergers were to occur today, the Combined Company’s portfolio would consist of 71 properties in 14 states with an average effective rent of $1,158. Based on occupancy as of June 30, 2019, the Combined Company’s portfolio would have an occupancy rate of 94%, an average age of 20 years and gross real estate assets of $3.3 billion.

In addition, the Amended STAR Advisory Agreement provides for a Subordinated Incentive Listing Fee and Subordinated Share of Net Sales Proceeds (each as defined therein) to be payable to the STAR Advisor.
Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the Advisor may request to receive a new class of convertible stock in exchange for the Convertible Stock owned in lieu of the incentive and performance fees provided for in the Amended STAR Advisory Agreement; provided that such request must be made prior to the consummation of either of the Mergers.
Amended and Restated Share Repurchase Plan
In connection with the proposed Mergers, on August 5, 2019, the Company’s board of directors approved the Amended and Restated Share Repurchase Plan (the “Amended & Restated SRP”), which will become effective September 5, 2019, and will apply beginning with repurchases made on the repurchase date (as defined in the Amended & Restated SRP) with respect to the third quarter of 2019. Under the Amended & Restated SRP, the Company will only repurchase shares of common stock in connection with the death or qualifying disability (as determined by the Company’s board in its sole discretion) of a stockholder, subject to certain terms and conditions specified in the Amended & Restated SRP. Repurchases pursuant to the Amended and Restated SRP will continue to be limited to $2,000,000 per quarter. The Company expects that the board of directors of the Combined Company will determine the terms of the share repurchase plan at a later date following consummation of the Mergers.

Item 2.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Steadfast Apartment REIT, Inc. and the notes thereto. As used herein, the terms “we,” “our” and “us” refer to Steadfast Apartment REIT, Inc., a Maryland corporation, and, as required by context, Steadfast Apartment REIT Operating Partnership, L.P., a Delaware limited partnership, which we refer to as our “operating partnership,” and to their subsidiaries.
Certain statements regarding future estimates and expectations may not be applicable to the extent the Merger (as defined herein) is completed.
Forward-Looking Statements
Certain statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that are not historical facts (including any statements concerning investment objectives, other plans and objectives of management for future operations or economic performance, or assumptions or forecasts related thereto) are forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act. These statements are only predictions. We caution that forward-looking statements are not guarantees. Actual events or our investments and results of operations could differ materially from those expressed or implied in any forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are typically identified by the use of terms such as “may,” “should,” “expect,” “could,” “intend,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “believe,” “continue,” “predict,” “potential” or the negative of such terms and other comparable terminology.
The forward-looking statements included herein are based upon our current expectations, plans, estimates, assumptions and beliefs that involve numerous risks and uncertainties. Assumptions relating to the foregoing involve judgments with respect to, among other things, future economic, competitive and market conditions and future business decisions, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and many of which are beyond our control. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, our actual results and performance could differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements. Factors that could have a material adverse effect on our operations and future prospects include, but are not limited to:
the fact that we have a limited operating history and commenced operations on May 22, 2014;
the fact that we have had a net loss for each quarterly and annual period since inception; 
changes in economic conditions generally and the real estate and debt markets specifically; 
our ability to secure resident leases for our multifamily properties at favorable rental rates; 
risks inherent in the real estate business, including resident defaults, potential liability relating to environmental matters and the lack of liquidity of real estate investments; 
the fact that we pay fees and expenses to our advisor and its affiliates that were not negotiated on an arm’s length basis and the fact that the payment of these fees and expenses increases the risk that our stockholders will not earn a profit on their investment in us; 
our ability to retain our executive officers and other key personnel of our advisor, our property manager and other affiliates of our advisor; 
our ability to generate sufficient cash flows to pay distributions for our stockholders;
legislative or regulatory changes (including changes to the laws governing the taxation of real estate investment trusts, or REITs); 
the availability of capital; 
changes in interest rates; and 
changes to generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP.
Any of the assumptions underlying forward-looking statements could be inaccurate. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements included in this quarterly report. All forward-looking statements are made as of the date of this quarterly report and the risk that actual results will differ materially from the expectations expressed in this

quarterly report will increase with the passage of time. Except as otherwise required by the federal securities laws, we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements after the date of this quarterly report, whether as a result of new information, future events, changed circumstances or any other reason. In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in the forward-looking statements included in this quarterly report, the inclusion of such forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation by us or any other person that the objectives and plans set forth in this quarterly report will be achieved.
All forward looking statements included herein should be read in connection with the risks identified in the “Risk Factors” section of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or the SEC, on March 14, 2019.
Overview
We were formed on August 22, 2013, as a Maryland corporation that elected to be taxed as, and qualifies as, a REIT. As described in more detail below, we own and manage a diverse portfolio of 34 multifamily properties, located in the United States comprising a total of 11,601 apartment homes and one parcel of land held for the development of apartment homes. We may acquire additional multifamily properties or pursue multifamily development projects in the future.
On December 30, 2013, we commenced an initial public offering of up to 66,666,667 shares of common stock at an initial price of $15.00 per share and up to 7,017,544 shares of common stock pursuant to our distribution reinvestment plan at an initial price of $14.25 per share. On March 24, 2016, we terminated our initial public offering. As of March 24, 2016, we had sold 48,625,651 shares of common stock for gross offering proceeds of $724,849,631, including 1,011,561 shares of common stock issued pursuant to our distribution reinvestment plan for gross offering proceeds of $14,414,752. Following the termination of our initial public offering, we have continued to offer shares of our common stock pursuant to our distribution reinvestment plan. As of June 30, 2019, we had sold 53,615,560 shares of common stock for gross proceeds of $799,097,238, including 6,001,533 shares of common stock issued pursuant to our distribution reinvestment plan for gross offering proceeds of $88,662,359.
On March 12, 2019, our board of directors approved an estimated value per share of our common stock of $15.84 as of December 31, 2018. In connection with the determination of an estimated value per share, our board of directors determined a price per share for the distribution reinvestment plan of $15.84, effective April 1, 2019. In the future, our board of directors may, in its sole discretion and from time to time, change the price at which we offer shares pursuant to our distribution reinvestment plan to reflect changes in our estimated value per share and other factors that our board of directors deems relevant.
Subject to certain restrictions and limitations, Steadfast Apartment Advisor, LLC, which we refer to as our “advisor,” manages our day-to-day operations and our portfolio of properties and real estate-related assets. Our advisor sources and presents investment opportunities to our board of directors. Our advisor also provides investment management, marketing, investor relations and other administrative services on our behalf.
Substantially all of our business is conducted through Steadfast Apartment REIT Operating Partnership, L.P., our operating partnership. We are the sole general partner of our operating partnership and one of our wholly-owned subsidiaries is the only limited partner of our operating partnership. As we accepted subscriptions for shares of common stock in our initial public offering, we transferred substantially all of the net proceeds to our operating partnership as a capital contribution. The limited partnership agreement of our operating partnership provides that our operating partnership will be operated in a manner that will enable us to (1) satisfy the requirements for being classified as a REIT for federal income tax purposes, (2) avoid any federal income or excise tax liability and (3) ensure that our 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, or the Internal Revenue Code, which classification could result in our operating partnership being taxed as a corporation, rather than as a disregarded entity. In addition to the administrative and operating costs and expenses incurred by our operating partnership in acquiring and operating our investments, our operating partnership will pay all of our administrative costs and expenses, and such expenses will be treated as expenses of our operating partnership.
We elected to be taxed as a REIT under the Internal Revenue Code commencing with our taxable year ended December 31, 2014. As a REIT, we generally will not be subject to federal income tax to the extent that we distribute qualifying dividends to our stockholders. If we fail to qualify as a REIT in any taxable year, we would be subject to federal income tax on our taxable income at regular corporate rates and would not be permitted to qualify for treatment as a REIT for federal income tax purposes for four years following the year in which qualification is lost, unless the Internal Revenue Service grants us relief under certain statutory provisions. Failing to qualify as a REIT could materially and adversely affect our net income and results of operations.

Market Outlook
We believe economic and demographic trends will benefit our existing portfolio and that we have unique future investment opportunities in the multifamily sector. Home ownership rates are at near all-time lows. Demographic and economic factors favor the flexibility of rental housing and discourage the potential financial burden associated with home ownership. Additionally, Millennials and Baby Boomers, the two largest demographic groups comprising roughly half of the total population in the United States, are increasingly choosing rental housing over home ownership. Demographic studies suggest that Baby Boomers are downsizing their suburban homes and relocating to multifamily apartments. Millennials are renting multifamily apartments due to high levels of student debt and increased credit standards in order to qualify for a home mortgage. According to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, aggregate student debt has surpassed automotive, home equity lines of credit and credit card debt. Millennials are also getting married and having children later and are choosing to live in apartment communities until their mid-30s. Today, 30% of Millennials are still living with their parents or are still in school. When they get a job, Millennials will likely rent moderate income apartments based upon an average income of $45,000 to $65,000. Our plan is to provide rental housing for these generational groups as they age. We believe these factors will continue to contribute to the demand for multifamily housing.
Our Real Estate Portfolio
