Slide 7

Resilient Portfolio and Business Model Positioned for Long-Term Value Creation Clear investment strategy focused on middle-market communities which offer affordable high-quality product with attractive amenities Strong portfolio of assets in non-gateway markets which offer resilient real estate fundamentals Flexible investment opportunities, including value add & capital recycling programs, implemented when appropriate to realize outsized returns Simple capital structure and strong balance sheet, with ample liquidity and no significant near-term debt maturities

Slide 8

Clear Investment and Ownership Strategy Assets Our Focus: Well-located middle-market communities, likely to benefit from: Robust management platform, including revenue management Operational expertise Economies of scale Markets Our Focus: Targeted submarkets within non-gateway markets exhibiting: Strong apartment demand Limited new construction Strong economic indicators We Look For: Strong employment drivers Population growth & positive net migration trends Well-rated schools Attractive rent vs. buy dynamics Mature, infill locations with high barriers to entry We Look For: Mid-rise/garden style (150–500) units with attractive amenities Acquire properties at less than replacement cost Opportunities for repositioning or updating through capital expenditures Ability to apply tailored marketing and management strategies to attract and retain residents and increase rents Focused approach on identifying the right assets in the right markets Leading To Increased Property Level NOI – Stable Occupancy Rates, Above Average Rent Growth and Reduced Expenses

Slide 9

Well-Positioned in Affordable, Highly Defensive Middle Market Communities A B C Higher income residents move down in a recession Renters move down to Class B as rent increases outstrip income growth Capture households moving down in a recession Capture seniors who sell homes to fund retirement Capture individuals/families moving up with career progression Lower income residents move up as income grows Sample IRT Resident Demographic: Value driven Middle income category Renters by necessity IRT Residents Require Accommodations That Are: Affordable Well maintained, spacious, comfortable, clean and modern Equipped with state-of-the-art amenities Conveniently located Class B Positioning: Most opportunity to consistently increase rents Less exposure to homeownership Less likely to be impacted from new construction Our multifamily exposure is a natural inflation hedge due to our ability to reset rents annually

Includes all costs to renovate the interior units and make certain exterior renovations, including clubhouses and amenities. Interior costs per unit are based on units leased. Exterior costs per unit are based on total units at the community. Excludes overhead costs to support and manage the value add program as those costs relate to the entire program and cannot be allocated to individual projects. Calculated using the rent premium per unit per month, multiplied by 12, divided by the interior renovation costs per unit. Calculated using the rent premium per unit per month, multiplied by 12, divided by the total renovation costs per unit. We expect to begin renovations at these four properties during the first half of 2021. We continue to evaluate market conditions with respect to these two properties.

Definitions and Non-GAAP Financial Measure Reconciliations This presentation may contain non-U.S. generally accepted accounting principals (“GAAP”) financial measures. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included in this document and/or IRT’s reports filed or furnished with the SEC available at IRT’s website www.IRTLIVING.com under Investor Relations. IRT’s other SEC filings are also available through this website. Average Effective Monthly Rent per Unit Average effective rent per unit represents the average of gross rent amounts, divided by the average occupancy (in units) for the period presented.  IRT believes average effective rent is a helpful measurement in evaluating average pricing.  This metric, when presented, reflects the average effective rent per month. Average Occupancy Average occupancy represents the average occupied units for the reporting period divided by the average of total units available for rent for the reporting period. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA EBITDA is defined as net income before interest expense including amortization of deferred financing costs, income tax expense, and depreciation and amortization expenses. Adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA before certain other non-cash or non-operating gains or losses related to items such as asset sales, debt extinguishments and acquisition related debt extinguishment expenses, casualty losses, and abandoned deal costs. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are each non-GAAP measures. IRT considers each of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA to be an appropriate supplemental measure of performance because it eliminates interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and other non-cash or non-operating gains and losses, which permits investors to view income from operations without these non-cash or non-operating items. IRT’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA differs from the methodology used for calculating Adjusted EBITDA by certain other REITs and, accordingly, IRT’s Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to Adjusted EBITDA reported by other REITs. Funds From Operations (“FFO”) and Core Funds From Operations (“CFFO”) IRT believes that FFO and CFFO, each of which is a non-GAAP financial measure, are additional appropriate measures of the operating performance of a REIT and IRT in particular. IRT computes FFO in accordance with the standards established by the National Association of Real Estate Investment Trusts, or NAREIT, as net income or loss (computed in accordance with GAAP), excluding real estate-related depreciation and amortization expense, gains or losses on sales of real estate and the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles. CFFO is a computation made by analysts and investors to measure a real estate company’s operating performance by removing the effect of items that do not reflect ongoing property operations, including stock compensation expense, depreciation and amortization of other items not included in FFO, amortization of deferred financing costs, and other non-cash or non-operating gains or losses related to items such as casualty losses and abandoned deal costs from the determination of FFO. IRT’s calculation of CFFO differs from the methodology used for calculating CFFO by certain other REITs and, accordingly, IRT’s CFFO may not be comparable to CFFO reported by other REITs. IRT’s management utilizes FFO and CFFO as measures of IRT’s operating performance, and believes they are also useful to investors, because they facilitate an understanding of IRT’s operating performance after adjustment for certain non-cash or non-operating items that are required by GAAP to be expensed but may not necessarily be indicative of current operating performance and that may not accurately compare IRT’s operating performance between periods. Furthermore, although FFO, CFFO and other supplemental performance measures are defined in various ways throughout the REIT industry, IRT believes that FFO and CFFO provide investors with additional useful measures to compare IRT’s financial performance to certain other REITs. Neither FFO nor CFFO is equivalent to net income or cash generated from operating activities determined in accordance with GAAP. Furthermore, FFO and CFFO do not represent amounts available for management’s discretionary use because of needed capital replacement or expansion, debt service obligations or other commitments or uncertainties. Neither FFO nor CFFO should be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of IRT’s operating performance or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as a measure of IRT’s liquidity.

Definitions and Non-GAAP Financial Measure Reconciliations Net Operating Income We believe that Net Operating Income (“NOI”), a non-GAAP financial measure, is a useful supplemental measure of its operating performance. We define NOI as total property revenues less total property operating expenses, excluding interest expenses, depreciation and amortization, property management expenses, and general and administrative expenses. Other REITs may use different methodologies for calculating NOI, and accordingly, our NOI may not be comparable to other REITs. We believe that this measure provides an operating perspective not immediately apparent from GAAP operating income or net income insofar as the measure reflects only operating income and expense at the property level. We use NOI to evaluate performance on a same store and non-same store basis because NOI measures the core operations of property performance by excluding corporate level expenses, financing expenses, and other items not related to property operating performance and captures trends in rental housing and property operating expenses. However, NOI should only be used as an alternative measure of our financial performance. Same Store Properties and Same Store Portfolio We review our same store portfolio at the beginning of each calendar year. Properties are added into the same store portfolio if they were owned at the beginning of the previous year. Properties that are held-for-sale or have been sold are excluded from the same store portfolio. Total Gross Assets Total Gross Assets equals total assets plus accumulated depreciation and accumulated amortization, including fully depreciated or amortized real estate and real estate related assets. The following table provides a reconciliation of total assets to total gross assets (Dollars in thousands). Interest Coverage is a ratio computed by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by interest expense Net Debt, a non-GAAP financial measure, equals total debt less cash and cash equivalents. The following table provides a reconciliation of total debt to net debt (Dollars in thousands). We present net debt because management believes it is a useful measure of our credit position and progress toward reducing leverage. The calculation is limited because we may not always be able to use cash to repay debt on a dollar for dollar basis. As of December 31, 2020 September 30, 2020 June 30, 2020 March 31, 2020 December 31, 2019 Total debt $945,686 $1,004,237 $1,008,911 $1,049,541 $985,572 Less: cash and cash equivalents (8,751) (9,891) (11,652) (57,436) (9,888) Total net debt $936,935 $994,346 $997,259 $992,105 $975,684 As of December 31, 2020 September 30, 2020 June 30, 2020 March 31, 2020 December 31, 2019 Total assets $1,734,897 $1,700,428 $1,708,912 $1,757,138 $1,664,106 Plus: accumulated depreciation 208,618 194,645 187,758 172,789 158,435 Plus: accumulated amortization 19,380 19,827 19,754 19,567 19,197 Total gross assets $1,962,895 $1,914,900 $1,916,424 $1,949,494 $1,841,738

Forward-Looking Statement This presentation contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Such forward-looking statements can generally be identified by our use of forward-looking terminology such as “will,” “strategy,” “expects,” “seeks,” “believes,” “potential,” or other similar words. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, our expectations with respect to capital allocations, including as to the timing and amount of future dividends. Because such statements include risks, uncertainties and contingencies, actual results may differ materially from the expectations, intentions, beliefs, plans or predictions of the future expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of our management and are inherently subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are difficult to predict and generally not within our control. In addition, these forward-looking statements are subject to assumptions with respect to future business strategies and decisions that are subject to change. Risks and uncertainties that might cause our actual results and/or future dividends to differ materially from those expressed or implied by forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to: risks related to the impact of COVID-19 and other potential future outbreaks of infectious diseases on our financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and performance and those of our residents as well as on the economy and real estate and financial markets; changes in market demand for rental apartment homes and pricing pressures, including from competitors, that could limit our ability to lease units or increase rents or that could lead to declines in occupancy and rent levels; uncertainty and volatility in capital and credit markets, including changes that reduce availability, and increase costs, of capital; inability of tenants to meet their rent and other lease obligations and charge-offs in excess of our allowance for bad debt; legislative restrictions that may delay or limit collections of past due rents; risks endemic to real estate and the real estate industry generally; the effects of natural and other disasters; delays in completing, and cost overruns incurred in connection with, our value add initiatives and failure to achieve projected rent increases and occupancy levels on account of the initiatives; unexpected costs of REIT qualification compliance; costs and disruptions as the result of a cybersecurity incident or other technology disruption; and share price fluctuations. Please refer to the documents filed by us with the SEC, including specifically the “Risk Factors” sections of our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020, and our other filings with the SEC, which identify additional factors that could cause actual results to differ from those contained in forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events, except as may be required by law. In addition, the declaration of dividends on our common stock is subject to the discretion of our Board of Directors and depends upon a broad range of factors, including our results of operations, financial condition, capital requirements, the annual distribution requirements under the REIT provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, applicable legal requirements and such other factors as our Board of Directors may from time to time deem relevant. For these reasons, as well as others, there can be no assurance that dividends in the future will be equal or similar to the expected amount of the quarterly dividend described in this presentation.
