DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American Realty Investors, Inc. (NYSE:ARL), a Dallas-based real estate investment company, today reported results of operations for the first quarter ended March 31, 2018. For the three months ended June 30, 2018, we reported a net income applicable to common shares of $5.6 million or ($0.35) per diluted loss per share compared to a net loss applicable to common shares of $11.2 million or ($0.72) per diluted loss per share for the same period ended 2017.
The Company maintained its overall focus on growing its portfolio and is working on several strategic initiatives that we previously announced earlier this year. Overall, management remains very encouraged about the overall performance of the company; especially tied to the quality of our assets in our portfolio, and the new multifamily apartment projects under various stages of development.
Rental and other property revenues were $31.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017. The change by segment was an increase in revenues in the apartment portfolio of approximately $1.2 million, offset by a decrease in revenues in the commercial portfolio of $1.2 million.
Property operating expenses were $15.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This represents an increase of $0.1 million compared to the prior period operating expenses of $15.4 million. This increase is driven primarily by an increase in property operating expenses in the apartment portfolio of $1.0 million offset by a decrease in operating expenses from our commercial portfolio of $0.7 million and $0.2 million from the other portfolio.
Depreciation and amortization expense was $6.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $6.4 million in the same period of 2017. This increase was due primarily to the growth in our apartment portfolio, which resulted in a $0.1 million increase in the expense year over year.
General and Administrative expense was $2.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This represents an increase of $1.0 million compared to the prior period expense of $1.9 million. The increase is due to an increase in expense reimbursements paid to our advisor of approximately $0.7 million and professional fees for consulting, audit and tax services of approximately $0.3 million.
Other income (expense)
Mortgage and loan interest expense was $15.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This represents a decrease of $1.4 million compared to the prior period expense of $17.3 million. The change by segment represents a decrease in the other portfolio of $1.0 million, $0.5 million in the land portfolio and $0.2 million in the commercial portfolio offset by an increase of $0.3 million in the apartment portfolio. Within the other portfolio the decrease is primarily due to $1.2 million of interest expense savings related to maturing notes payable paid during the first quarter of 2018.
Other income was $7.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This represents an increase of $7.6 million as compared to prior period other expense of $0.1 million. The increase is the result of insurance proceeds of approximately $6.6 million received subsequent to the "as is" sale of a property damaged by a hurricane, and other miscellaneous income of approximately $1.0 million.
Foreign currency transaction was a gain of $5.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This represents an increase of $9.3 million compared to prior period foreign currency transaction loss of $3.4 million. The increase is the result of a gain in foreign currency exchange as a result of the favorable exchange rate between the Israel Shekels and the U.S. Dollar related to our Bond program.
For the three months ended June 30, 2018, we sold a golf course for a total sales price of $2.3 million and recorded no gain or loss on the sale. For the same period in 2017, the Company recorded a loss of approximately $0.5 million from the sale of 8.3 acres of land for a sales price of $0.5 million.
