CIM Real Estate Trust: CIM Group Announces Decreased REIT NAV
CIM Real Estate Finance Trust’s net asset value has decreased since its original offering at $10 per share. According to The DI Wire,
The valuation is based on the estimated market value of the REIT’s assets less the estimated market value of its liabilities, divided by the total number of shares outstanding. Duff & Phelps LLC, a third-party valuation firm, assisted with the process and estimated a $7.49 to $8.05 per share valuation range with a midpoint of $7.77 per share.
The DI Wire reports that the company had approximately $4.1 billion in total assets as of December 31, 2019. This compares to the $5.2 billion in total assets reported in 2018.

The Dangers of REIT Investments
While REITs are often marketed as low-risk, high yield investments, FINRA and the SEC have recently increased scrutiny into the marketing of these investments. Non-traded REITs are not traded on the public securities exchange, meaning that these REITs can often be illiquid. Many investors have reported being unable to redeem their shares from non-traded REITs and remain stuck in these uncertain investments as a result.
Many firms have notoriously sold REITs to investors. If you invested in CIM Real Estate Finance Trust, or any other REIT investments, and have lost part of your investment, not received your distributions, or remain stuck in the uncertain REIT, you may be eligible for monetary recovery.
