Accordingly, the financial information contained in this announcement relates solely to the Bank for the periods prior to January 8, 2019.

Net income was $449,000 for the year ended December 31, 2019, compared to a net loss of $19,000 for the year ended December 31, 2018. Interest income increased $482,000, or 2.9%, to $17.2 million, primarily due to an increase of $1.5 million, or 15.6%, in interest earned on commercial loans, partially offset by a decrease of $1 million, or 25.2% in interest earned on residential mortgage loans during 2019. Interest expense increased $700,000, or 16.5%, to $4.9 million as rates paid on interest-bearing deposits increased 30 basis points due to a changing interest rate environment and competitive pressures within our market area. Net interest income before provision for loan losses was $12.3 million, a decrease of $218,000, or 1.8% from $12.5 million at December 31, 2018. Upon a reevaluation of the credit risk within its loan portfolio, the Company reversed a $1 million provision for loan losses, which increased net interest income after provision for loan losses by $814,000, or 6.5% to $13.3 million. Noninterest income increased $289,000, or 9.8% to $3.2 million primarily due to an increase in fees earned on the sale and servicing of residential mortgage loans which increased $249,000 or 17.6%, to $1.7 million. Noninterest expense increased $467,000, or 3.0% to $16.1 million primarily due to $588,000 in professional fees incurred in connection with the Reorganization and related stock offering, as well as expenses associated with the establishment and funding of our charitable foundation in the 2019 period.
Total assets were $428.0 million, a decrease of $53.1 million, or 11.0% from $481.1 million at December 31, 2018, primarily due to a reduction in net loans were which decreased $59.2 million, or 16.0%. The decrease in loans was due primarily to the sale of $29.1 million of first mortgage residential real estate loans into the secondary market to manage credit and interest rate risk. The decrease in loans also included decreases in remaining first mortgage residential real estate loans and home equity lines of credit due to normal payment and refinancing activity, as well as a $9.8 million, or 4.4% reduction in commercial and commercial real estate loans due to prepayment activity. Total deposits decreased $61.5 million, or 15.2%, due in part to a reduction in commercial deposits, which included approximately $18.2 million in stock offering proceeds at December 31, 2018. Additionally, funds generated by the reduction in loan balances referred to above were used to pay off brokered certificates of deposit, which decreased $38.4 million, or 56.5%, to $29.6 million from the prior period.
