Land held subject to sales contract is our sole operating segment. In November 2015, the Company entered into a sales contract with an unrelated party. The contract was for all of the developable land owned by the Company. Due to the continuing involvement of the seller, including the level of seller financing involved, the transaction is being accounted for under the deposit method. Under the deposit method, no revenue is recognized and the asset remains on the books until the criteria for full revenue recognition are met. There was no income generated from this segment for the years ended December 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015.

The Company incurred no property operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2016 compared to property operating expenses of $61,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015. This decrease was a direct result of the sale of the land in 2015.

General and administrative expenses were $396,000 for the year ended December 31, 2016. This represents a decrease of $70,000 compared to general and administrative expenses of $466,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in legal expenses.

Net income fee to related party was $257,000 for the year ended December 31, 2016. This represents an increase of $70,000, as compared to the net income fee of $187,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015. The net income fee paid is calculated at the rate of 7.5% of net income.

Advisory fees were $639,000 for the year ended December 31, 2016, for a decrease of $65,000 compared to advisory fees of $704,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015. Advisory fees are computed based on a gross asset fee of 0.0625% per month (0.75% per annum) of the average of the gross asset value.

Interest income was $4.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2016, an increase of $0.1 million compared to interest income of $4.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2015.

The Company incurred no mortgage and loan interest expense for the year ended December 31, 2016 compared to $652,000 for the year ended December 31, 2015. This decrease was due to the payoff of the mortgage obligations during 2015.
