Underutilized fixed assets refers to assets owned (in principal) that are not fully utilized by their owners. Full utilization is subtle and can refer to usage by time (for example vacation homes that remain unused for most of the year) or usage by capacity (for example a spare bedroom).

This can be a latent supply used to bootstrap a marketplace business, where the fractured supply can be aggregated and used to efficiently serve the needs of a customer base.
