# How is the value of a share determined?

The dollar value of a share is determined by the percentage of the property that the share represents.

For example, if a share is worth 0.05% of a property, and the property is worth $500,000, then the share is worth $250.00.

The true dollar value of the share is realized when the property is sold or the maturity date is hit. The value will be based either off the sale-price of the property, or the middle of three third-party appraisals done on the property.
