Nexia Acquires Two Additional Residential Properties

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - December 10, 2008) - Nexia Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: NXHD) announced the execution of a Real Estate Purchase Agreement with Casey J. Coleman to acquire two residential properties, both located in Salt Lake City, Utah. The total value is estimated to be $465,000 which will be paid with the issuance of 93,000 shares of restricted Series C Preferred Stock of Nexia.

The properties are both single-family dwellings that are currently fully occupied. The purchase of these properties will serve as an example to other potential sellers and may add further credibility to the soundness of Nexia's Real Estate Acquisition Strategy.

Richard Surber, CEO of Nexia Holdings, stated, "The acquisition of these homes is merely the tip of the iceberg. These two properties coupled with the recent acquisition of a triplex should add nearly $1M to Nexia's balance sheet and the Nexia real estate team has barely begun its acquisition efforts."

Mr. Surber further commented, "I anticipate by the end of December Nexia may be able to acquire another 10 to 20 properties which could add as much as $2.5M to Nexia's balance sheet. Everything that I am seeing tells me that it is very possible that Nexia could acquire vast amounts of residential properties with no cash. Furthermore, Nexia could end up owning the properties free and clear of all debt within 24 months of acquiring the properties based upon its strategy."

Casey J. Coleman, the seller, commented, "This was a perfect opportunity to sell my real estate. I was able to get a fair market value when most other real estate is selling at steep discounts. I am very satisfied with the structure of the transaction and have a great deal of confidence that Nexia's real estate strategy and other operations will be reflected in the value of Nexia. I am bullish on Nexia based upon my due diligence of their plans to create value."
