May 27, 2015, 18:21 ET from American Homes 4 Rent

AGOURA HILLS, Calif., May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- American Homes 4 Rent (NYSE: AMH), a leading provider of high quality single-family rental homes ("the Company"), today posted the revised "Home Price Appreciation Factor" and "Home Price Appreciation Amount" through March 31, 2015, as those terms are defined in the final prospectuses for the Company's 5% Series A, 5% Series B and 5.5% Series C Participating Preferred Shares (NYSE: AMHPRA, AMHPRB and AMHPRC).  The computations of these amounts are based on the results of the House Price Index of the Federal Housing Finance Agency, or FHFA, known as the Quarterly Purchase-Only Index, or POI, specifically the non-seasonally adjusted "Purchase-Only Index" for the "100 Largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas" as of March 31, 2015, which was released May 26, 2015.

Based on the weighting among our top 20 markets established under the terms of our 5% Series A and 5% Series B Participating Preferred Shares, cumulative home price appreciation for the period from June 30, 2013 to March 31, 2015 was 9.71%, resulting in a Home Price Appreciation Factor of 4.85%.  The Home Price Appreciation Amount on our 5% Series A and 5% Series B Participating Preferred Shares through March 31, 2015 was $1.213.

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, 2015 was 6.85%, resulting in a Home Price Appreciation Factor of 3.43%.  The Home Price Appreciation Amount on our 5.5% Series C Participating Preferred Shares through March 31, 2015 was $0.856.

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).  The Company anticipates announcing the next update to these amounts in approximately three months.
