Item 1.01. Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement

On November 1, 2011, Mid-America Apartment Communities, Inc., ("MAA"), through Mid-America Apartments, L.P., MAA's operating partnership, (the "Borrower"), entered into a new $250 million Senior Unsecured Revolving Credit Facility (the "Agreement"). The facility has an initial term of four years and provides for a one year extension at MAA's option, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions. The facility also contains an accordion feature which allows MAA to increase the total amount of the facility to $400 million.

Outstanding amounts under the facility will bear interest at a variable rate based upon, at the Borrower's option, a base rate or one-, two-, three- or six-month LIBOR, plus a spread based on MAA's total leverage. At the time MAA obtains an investment grade rating from either Moody's Investor Services, Inc. or Standard & Poor's Rating Group, the facility will bear interest at a variable rate based upon the applicable LIBOR, plus a credit spread and facility fee, both based upon the investment grade rating.

The Agreement contains affirmative and negative covenants usual and customary for financings generally and also contains financial covenants that, among other things, require certain leverage and secured debt ratios, unencumbered asset levels and fixed charge coverage.

MAA intends to use the loan proceeds, among other things, to refinance existing lines of credit facilities, for the acquisition and/or development of properties, and for other general corporate purposes.
