They arent the same thing.
Taking a property subject to means yous imply take over payments on the existing loans. You dont assume them, or anything you just continue making the payments.
A wrap is a form of the exit. You can sell wrapping the loans you took over payments, you could also sell on a L/O, You could also cash out the loan.
A wrap happens for example you have an uderlying loan of 70k(we’ll assume 700/month on the underlying) and then you sell for a 110k, with say 10k down, you now have a 100k that the payor still owes you. So you wrap the 100k around the 70k, maybe you have 1000/month coming in and 700/month going out, which gives you a positive cash flow of 300/month. It the interest on the underlying is lower than the top loan then you would also have equity growth.
