Forget the Gloom, Commercial Property Looks Strong

(New York)

Over the last several months there has been a lot of doom and gloom about commercial real estate. Everyone had been expecting a surge in defaults in 2016 and 2017 given that many mortgages issued in 2006 and 2017 were coming due. However, the delinquency rate on commercial mortgages has been falling for 8 consecutive months and is currently at 4.51%, compared to 5.31% this time last year and 10.34% in 2012. Many borrowers have been able to readily refinance their debts given high liquidity in the market.
