Munich (euro adhoc) - August 9, 2011 - Fair Value REIT-AG has sold a property in
a central commercial location in Rellingen near Hamburg. The building is
currently rented to Sparkasse Südholstein. The sales price for the property held
in part ownership is EUR 675 thousand, which represents 15.7 times the annual
rent. This figure is therefore around 21% above the market value of around 13
annual rents fixed on December 31, 2010. 

The buyer also purchased the residential part of the property (three flats) not
owned by Fair Value, making him the sole owner of the building in the future.
The transfer of benefits and encumbrances is due to be concluded by September
30, 2011. 

Frank Schaich, CEO of Fair Value REIT-AG, explains: "This sales price being
substantially above the previous market valuation proves the sustained rise in
interest in smaller real estate investments, as well as the intrinsic value of
these properties in the Fair Value REIT-AG. In addition, this transaction was
made in harmony with our strategy of improving cost structures also by selling
smaller properties and successively increasing the average investment volume per
