MBA Research Releases Report on Current Trends in Commercial and Multifamily Mortgage Financing

WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 13, 2018) – (RealEstateRama) — Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) Research today released a market overview highlighting the current trends in Commercial/Multifamily real estate finance. The report identifies headwinds and tailwinds the market will face in the coming months, summarizes the available data on current market conditions, and discusses the different sources of capital playing a role in the market now.

“2017 was the strongest year on record for commercial and multifamily real estate finance. Mortgage bankers closed a record-high $530 billion in loans backed by commercial and multifamily properties; the total amount of mortgage debt outstanding grew to $3.1 trillion; and for most capital sources, mortgage delinquency rates were at or near all-time lows,” said Jamie Woodwell, MBA’s Vice President of Commercial Real Estate Research.  “2018 carries forward much of that momentum, but a series of headwinds and tailwinds are matching up to raise the level of uncertainty about how the year as a whole will play out.”

The report is available to download here.
