Commercial & Multi-Family Mortgage Delinquencies Remain Near Historic Lows…For Now…

We are in a weak economy that appears to be getting weaker by the day and we are in a severe credit crunch that would be getting worse except for the fact that it is already as bad as it can possibly be. Yet, despite all the doom and gloom, commercial mortgage loans (like the ones MasterPlan Capital originates) are holding up quite well.

A recent report by the Mortgage Bankers Association noted that, although delinquency rates for commercial mortgages edged up slightly in the third quarter, they remain at “the lower end of their historic range”

Financial Week goes as far asking if commercial mortgages aren’t a “bright spot” in the bleak world of property lending.

Commercial has not and should not suffer like residential lending did. We commercial real estate types never embraced “sub-prime” lending the way our wayward brothers in the end-use-consumer sector did. However, readers of this blog know that every business journalist with a keyboard and a press pass is predicting that commercial mortgage loans will falter as the economy weakens. We agree that commercial mortgage performance will deteriorate in correlation with the business cycle, while disagreeing with those who are predicting the end of the world as we know it.
