Sky Equity, LLC provides senior debt on cash-flowing properties, or properties that will or can readily become cash-flowing. While the majority of the bridge loans we originate and service are in the New York Metropolitan Area, we will entertain opportunities in other primary markets nationwide as long as our loan criteria is met. At Sky Equity, we understand the time restraints faced by most borrowers. Therefore, we move quickly through the loan application process, with all underwriting being performed in house. This allows us to get you the approval and funds you need when you need them.
