CHRISTIANSTED, U.S. Virgin Islands, Sept. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altisource Residential Corporation ("RESI" or the "Company") (NYSE:RESI) announced today that preliminary reports indicate that Hurricane Harvey is likely to have a minor impact on its portfolio of single-family homes located in Houston and the surrounding areas.

Our hearts are with all of those impacted by this storm, and we stand ready to do what we can to help our communities rebuild."
