Equity:

In real estate, equity is the difference between the fair market value of a property and the amount of any mortgage debt, or liens against the property, still outstanding. In business, the excess of a firm's assets over its liabilities. The term is also used to refer to the ownership interest of stockholders in a company, and to the value of the investments raised by the stock offerings.
