The equity method of accounting is used to account for each of the individual joint ventures. We have an ownership interest in the following unconsolidated real estate joint ventures:
Fees we received for various services provided to our unconsolidated joint ventures were recognized in management, leasing and other services as follows (in thousands):
Expense reimbursements from unconsolidated joint ventures were previously included in expense reimbursements in our September 30, 2018 Form 10-Q. As these revenues are not related to leases, the 2018 amounts have been reclassified to management, leasing and other services on the consolidated statements of operations to conform to the current year presentation. See Note 17 for discussion of adoption of Accounting Standards Codification Topic 842 “Leases”.
Our investments in real estate joint ventures are reduced by the percentage of the profits earned for leasing and development services associated with our ownership interest in each joint venture. Our carrying value of investments in unconsolidated joint ventures differs from our share of the assets reported in the “Summary Balance Sheets - Unconsolidated Joint Ventures” shown below due to adjustments to the book basis, including intercompany profits on sales of services that are capitalized by the unconsolidated joint ventures. The differences in basis (totaling $3.9 million and $4.1 million as of September 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively) are amortized over the various useful lives of the related assets.
In May 2019, the RioCan joint venture closed on the sale of its outlet center in Bromont, for net proceeds of approximately $6.4 million. Our share of the proceeds was approximately $3.2 million. As a result of this transaction, we recorded a foreign currency loss of approximately $3.6 million in other income (expense), which had been previously recorded in other comprehensive income.
In October 2019, the joint venture exercised its option to extend the mortgage loan for one year to November 2020 under the same terms. The mortgage loan has one remaining one-year extension option.
Condensed combined summary financial information of unconsolidated joint ventures accounted for using the equity method is as follows (in thousands):
