Commercial/Multifamily Real Estate Markets Responding to the Economy

WASHINGTON, D.C. - December 21, 2010 - (RealEstateRama) -- The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) today released its Commercial Real Estate/Multifamily Finance Quarterly Data Book for the third quarter of 2010. The analysis shows that the real estate cycle is beginning to once again exert itself in commercial and multifamily property markets. During the third quarter, the economy began to show (modest) growth and absorption picked up in the face of little new space coming on line. The result has been marginal declines in vacancy rates and a firming of asking rents. Property sales and originations volumes picked up, but volumes were not high enough to keep up with the mortgage debt that investors saw paying off and paying down. The weak economy continued to exert pressure on the performance of properties and the mortgages they back. Mortgage delinquencies were mixed in the quarter, with CMBS and banks/thrifts experiencing continued growth in delinquency rates (albeit at slower rates of growth) and delinquencies at life companies, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac remaining at low levels
