With the wave of maturities almost at its end, decreases in the overall reading should continue for the next few months.

Trepp, LLC, a leading provider of information, analytics, and technology to the structured finance, commercial real estate, and banking markets, released its October 2017 US CMBS Delinquency Report today. The full report can be found here:

The Trepp CMBS Delinquency Rate fell again in October, as more previously delinquent loans continue to be resolved. The delinquency rate for US commercial real estate loans in CMBS is now 5.21%, a drop of 19 basis points from September. For the first time in 2017, the year-to-date level is lower than the final 2016 delinquency reading.

“For the past few months, we’ve been saying that further declines in the Delinquency Rate could be expected,” said Manus Clancy, Senior Managing Director at Trepp. “That certainly rang true in October, as more loans find refinancing or resolution ahead of their balloon dates. With the wave of maturities almost at its end, decreases in the overall reading should continue for the next few months.”

Delinquency readings for all five major property types fell in October, and no sector’s rate fell more than that of the hotel segment. The lodging delinquency rate dropped 42 basis points to 3.42% last month. The month’s second-largest decrease belonged to the industrial sector, as its delinquency reading shed 31 basis points to 6.24%. The office delinquency rate slid 18 basis points to 6.92% in October.

Only $660 million in CMBS loans became newly delinquent last month, the lowest monthly total in more than three years. Thanks to a nearly identical volume of loans which were cured in October, the upward pressure from those new delinquencies was nullified. Additionally, roughly $750 million in previously delinquent debt was resolved last month.
