an estimated fair value of $131.3 million were acquired by the Company from its PROs and one self storage property with an estimated fair value of $4.1 million was acquired by the Company from the 2016 Joint Venture.
The self storage property acquisitions were accounted for as asset acquisitions and accordingly, during the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, $4.7 million and $3.6 million, respectively, of transaction costs related to the acquisitions were capitalized as part of the basis of the acquired properties. The Company recognized the estimated fair value of the acquired assets and assumed liabilities on the respective dates of such acquisitions. The Company allocated a portion of the purchase price to identifiable intangible assets consisting of customer in-place leases which were recorded at estimated fair values of $11.7 million and $10.9 million during the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, resulting in a total fair value of $531.6 million and $436.9 million allocated to real estate during the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Acquisition of PRO Management Company
As discussed in Note 1 and Note 3, on March 31, 2020, the Company closed on the previously announced mergers of SecurCare and DLAN with and into wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company. The mergers were accounted for as a business combination whereby the Company acquired additional interests in its operating partnership and DownREIT partnerships. Accordingly, this portion of the transaction was accounted for as a change in ownership of a consolidated subsidiary, resulting in a reduction to noncontrolling interests equal to the net book value of the acquired subsidiary interests.
In connection with the mergers, SecurCare's property management platform and related intellectual property were internalized by the Company. Under the terms of the Company's facilities portfolio management agreement with SecurCare, in connection with a retirement event leading to the internalization of SecurCare's property management platform, SecurCare was entitled to receive OP units in exchange for its property management platform and related intellectual property based on a contractual formula. Using this formula, the Company determined that SecurCare was entitled to receive an equivalent of 348,020 OP units totaling $10.3 million, based on the acquisition date closing price of the Company's common shares. The Company allocated the total purchase price to the estimated fair value of tangible and intangible assets acquired, and liabilities assumed. The Company allocated a portion of the purchase price to tangible fixed assets of $0.1 million and intangible assets consisting of a management contract with an estimated fair value of $4.6 million and the SecurCare trade name with an estimated
fair value of $3.2 million. The excess of the aggregate consideration paid over the identified assets acquired and liabilities assumed, equal to $2.4 million, was allocated to goodwill. The tangible and intangible assets related to the internalization are reported in other assets, net in the Company's condensed consolidated balance sheets.
The Company’s fair value measurements were based, in part, on valuations prepared by an independent valuation firm and the allocation of the purchase price required a significant amount of judgment. The Company measured the fair value of the management contract asset based on discounted future cash flows expected under the management contract from a market participant perspective. The management contract asset will be charged to amortization expense on a straight-line basis over 15 years, which represents the time period over which the majority of value was attributed in the Company’s discounted cash flow model. The Company measured the fair value of the trade name, which has an indefinite life and is not amortized, using the relief from royalty method.
The allocation of the purchase price requires judgment and was based on the Company's valuations, estimates and assumptions of the acquisition date fair value of the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed. This estimation process was completed during the year ended December 31, 2020.
DispositionsDuring the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company sold one self storage property to an unrelated third party. The gross sales price was $6.5 million and the Company recognized $2.8 million of gain on the sale.
