Oroton Equities is a private, entrepreneurial Real Estate Financing and Investment Company, founded in New York with offices located in New York City, Brooklyn and Cincinnati.
The transactions for which Oroton provides financing range from virtually duration and risk free standard transaction financing to third party distressed real estate investors; to four to ninety day financing – extended transaction financing – to third party distressed residential real estate investors that need time to complete the transaction.
Oroton also invests in distressed real estate transactions acting as principal. However, when acting as a financier, it is Oroton’s objective to continuously roll over its capital as quickly as possible.
Oroton has been, and continues to take advantage of a truly imperfect market in distressed real estate. With banks having lending criteria that are not functional so that borrowers cannot refinance and as such banks are selling troubled properties at below real market value to avoid carrying costs; Oroton and other investors are buying these properties at distressed prices. In this imperfect market, Oroton and its network of professional contacts are able to enter into relatively risk free financing and principal transactions that generate disproportionate returns mitigating risk.
Oroton is regularly presented with distressed residential and commercial real estate opportunities and it will evaluate each such opportunity on its merits. The advantage of commercial transactions is that they are larger. If relatively larger commercial transactions can be done on Oroton’s internal transaction terms, they will get priority treatment. But this does not preclude Oroton from investing and financing deals in the residential market as this market is and always has been one of Oroton’s core focuses.
