Next, the refinancing decision is examined with an extended discussion on creative financing methods such as wraparounds, buy-downs and second mortgages. The secondary mortgage and the use of mortgages as derivative assets are discussed. Commercial real estate issues center on leveraging, the impact of tax laws, and the financing of properties using equity participation and sale lease-back agreements.
