DALLAS, Oct. 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LIG Assets, Inc. (LIGA), a Company focused on residential and commercial real estate, announces a reduction in its primary mortgage balance to facilitate the process of refinancing the residential mortgage to obtain a lower rate. The mortgage balance for the residential assets at LIG Assets as of June 30, 2013 was $16,039,000. During the third quarter of the year this balance was reduced to $14,094,000.
The executive heading that residential real estate business has estimated the current market value at over $20 million. The sources of the paydown include $1,385,000 from the sale of residential assets, $222,000 of cash and $338,000 of renegotiation of the mortgage note.
LIG Assets is also exploring a new business area in which the Company would purchase or finance commercial real estate assets at a discount to market value and lease to own back the property to a qualified operator. LIGA would add value to the transactions by: A) sourcing the financing on hard to finance deals, B) sourcing the financing on discounted asset deals, and/or C) sourcing expert management.
Company executives believe that LIGA's market capitalization does not nearly reflect its current asset value nor potential.
