Resource Real Estate Opportunity REIT Declares Cash And Common Stock Distributions To Stockholders Of Record

On November 15, 2012, the board of directors of Resource Real Estate Opportunity REIT (the “Company”) authorized a cash distribution of $0.075 per share and a stock distribution of 0.0075 shares of common stock per share, or 0.75 percent of each outstanding share of common stock, for stockholders of record as of the close of business on December 31, 2012. The Company expects to pay both distributions on January 15, 2013.

The Company seeks to continually capitalize on approximately $2 trillion in commercial real estate debt that is maturing over the next five years, approximately half of which is “underwater.” Additionally, approximately $35 billion of multifamily commercial real estate in the marketplace is considered “distressed,” meaning the loans on the property are in default, which potentially provides appealing investment opportunities.
