Debt is money that is owed.
Debt investment is an investment in a firm or project through the purchase of bonds or debentures instead of through the purchase of common or preferred stock.
Debt service is the cash that is required for a particular time period to cover the repayment of interest and principal on a debt. Mortgages and student loans are examples of obligations that require debt service.
A deed is a legal document that is signed and delivered, usually referring to ownership of property.
Deed of Trust
A deed of trust is a type of secured real estate transaction that some states use instead of mortgages. A deed of trust involves a lender, a borrower, and a trustee. The lender gives the borrower money, and the borrower gives the lender one or more promissory notes. As security, the trustee holds a claim on the property so that if the borrower defaults on the terms of the loan, the trustee can take control of the property and correct the borrower's default.
Default refers to the failure to fulfill an obligation, such as repaying a loan.
Deficiency occurs when the funds recovered through the sale of a property fall short of the amount the borrower owes.
Delinquency history is a borrower's late payment history.
A past due payment is referred to as delinquent.
Demographics are statistical characteristics of a population (like age or income) used to identify markets.
Depreciation is the reduction in an asset's value with the passage of time.
Depreciation recapture is the profit received from the sale of depreciable capital property that must be reported as income. Depreciation recapture is assessed when the value of an asset exceeds the sale price. The difference between these figures is recaptured by being reported as income.
Discounted Cash Flow
Discounted cash flow is a valuation method used to estimate the desirability of an investment opportunity. It uses cash flow projections and discounts them to arrive at an estimate of the present value, which is used to evaluate the potential for investment.
Due diligence is the investigation of a potential investment. It confirms the facts considered relevant to a sale.
