Ears listed the average volumes for REIT preferreds.

Actually, that list was sorted by median, not average. It showed the min, max, median and average. My point was that even though a preferred may show a tiny median there are some trading days where there is significant volume traded, so although it may appear someone is stuck forever in the hotel, there are some days when you can get out the front door.

For example, here is HPPPrB last 10 days. It has a tiny median but there were a couple of days there where you could have exited. One of the issues of course is the opportunity cost for having to be patient.
