               American Spectrum Realty Reports Year End Results

                    Seven Office Properties Acquired in 2006

                      Rental Revenue Increased 28% for Year

     HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 15, 2007--American Spectrum
Realty, Inc. (AMEX:AQQ) ("the Company"), a real estate investment and
management company headquartered in Houston, Texas, announced today
its results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2006.

    Rental revenue for the year ended December 31, 2006 increased $5.6
million, or 28.2%, in comparison to the year ended December 31, 2005.
This increase was attributable to $5.2 million in revenue generated
from seven office properties acquired during 2006, in addition to $0.5
million in greater revenues from properties owned for the full years
ended December 31, 2006 and 2005 ("Same Properties"). This increase in
Same Properties revenue was primarily due to an increase in overall
occupancy. The weighted average occupancy of the Company's properties
held for investment increased to 90% at December 31, 2006 from 88% at
December 31, 2005. Rental revenue from the seven acquired properties
was included in the Company's results since their respective dates of
acquisition.

    Loss from continuing operations was $4.4 million for the year
ended December 31, 2006 compared to $5.4 million for the year ended
December 31, 2005, representing a decrease of $1.1 million. The
decrease was in large part attributable to a $1.3 million net gain on
extinguishment of debt recognized in 2006.

    The Company's net income for the year ended December 31, 2006 was
$6.5 million, or $4.71 per share, compared with a net loss of $2.3
million, or $1.56 per share, for the 2005 year. The net income
generated in 2006 was primarily attributable to a gain from
discontinued operations of $10.9 million. The Company's gain from
discontinued operations for the year ended December 31, 2005 was $3.1
million. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2006 also included
a $1.3 million net gain on extinguishment of debt as mentioned above.

    William J. Carden, President of American Spectrum, commented,
"During 2006, we acquired seven office properties in Texas, one of our
core markets. These seven purchases increased American Spectrum's
total square footage in Texas to approximately 1.5 million square feet
and increased its real estate projects in Houston to seventeen. We
also completed our planned renovations on several properties."

    He added, "American Spectrum will continue to seek to acquire
additional properties in our core markets of Texas, California and
Arizona during 2007 either directly or through joint ventures."

    American Spectrum Realty, Inc. is a real estate investment and
management company that owns 26 office, industrial, apartment and
