Real Estate and Other, Net
Real Estate and Other, Net
Real estate and other consists of ongoing operating income from our real estate subsidiaries. Real estate and other also includes net gains from the sale of facilities and equipment that are no longer used in operations, asset impairments and other non-operating charges and credits. In addition, during the first quarter of 2014, we entered into a joint venture agreement in which we contributed approximately 220 acres of excess property adjacent to our home office facility in Plano, Texas (Home Office Land Joint Venture). The new joint venture was formed to develop the contributed property and our proportional share of the joint venture's activities will be recorded in Real estate and other, net. For the three months ended August 2, 2014 and August 3, 2013, Real estate and other, net was income of $53 million and $68 million, respectively. For the six months ended August 2, 2014 and August 3, 2013, Real estate and other, net was income of $70 million and $90 million, respectively. Real estate and other, net was comprised primarily of sales of non-operating and operating assets and our proportional share of net income from the Home Office Land Joint Venture as detailed below.
Non-Operating Assets
During the first quarter of 2014, we sold four properties used in our former auto center operations and excess property adjacent to our home office facility not contributed to the Home Office Land Joint Venture for net proceeds of $15 million, resulting in net gains totaling $12 million. During the second quarter of 2014, we sold four additional properties used in our former auto center operations for net proceeds of $11 million, resulting in net gains totaling $9 million.

During the second quarter of 2013, we sold our investment in a joint venture that owns regional mall properties for $55 million, resulting in a net gain of $62 million. The gain exceeded the cash proceeds as a result of distributions of cash related to refinancing transactions in prior periods that were recorded as net reductions in the carrying amount of the investment. The net book value of the joint venture investment was a negative $7 million and was included in Other liabilities in the Consolidated Balance Sheets.
Operating Assets
During the first quarter of 2014, we sold a former department store location with a net book value of $1 million for net proceeds of $2 million, realizing a gain of $1 million.

During the first quarter of 2013, we sold our leasehold interest in a former department store location with a net book value of $2 million for net proceeds of $18 million, realizing a gain of $16 million. During the second quarter of 2013, we sold two properties, realizing a gain of $2 million.

Other
During the second quarter of 2014, the Company recorded $43 million for our proportional share of net income from the Home Office Land Joint Venture and received an aggregate cash distribution of $51 million.
