The valuation process for the private Apartment REIT’s Unit Value began with an evaluation of the REIT’s portfolio of assets. Next, the value of the outstanding debt (mortgages) was subtracted—leaving the total equity of the REIT. Lastly, the total equity was divided by the number of outstanding Units (currently held by Unitholders). The new unit value is a direct reflection of the actual value of the real estate.
