Releasing “Trapped Equity”
The concept of “Trapped Equity” is a common misconception in today’s commercial real estate market. In most cases equity is only “Trapped” if you don’t know how to free it up. Granted, the growth of the CMBS market (specifically understanding the impact of securitization as it relates to more uniform and restrictive loan documents and the increased complexity of servicer, sub-servicer and special servicer relationships) since 1996 has made monetizing on the appreciation of an asset more complex, however not at all unfeasible.

- Defeasing assets or portfolios of assets.
- Using preferred equity, mezzanine or other structured finance solutions.
- Making entity level investments.
