According to Trepp CMBS data, the most recent financials on office loans have already started to reflect the magnitude of the current economic downturn.

Trepp, a leading provider of information, analytics, and technology to the structured finance, commercial real estate, and banking markets has released a report to examine the impact of COVID-19 on office properties across the US in collaboration with CompStak, the nationwide provider of commercial real estate lease comps, sales comps, and property information.

To fully assess the impact of the current coronavirus disruption on a rapidly changing commercial real estate landscape, it is now more important than ever for industry participants to evaluate all available market indicators and datasets.

“According to Trepp CMBS data, the most recent financials on office loans have already started to reflect the magnitude of the current economic downturn,” said Catherine Liu, report author and Trepp Associate Manager of Research. “Reported quarter on quarter NOI and NCF values have trended notably lower in 2020 after logging a 2-5% growth rate since 2016.”

Roughly $3.3 billion in outstanding office CMBS across 125 loans and 245 properties have been flagged for having requested forbearances thus far.

When looking at different rent metrics across the largest markets in the U.S. throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear that landlords have been providing more concessions to their tenants. The concession numbers closely resemble the uptick seen during the 2009 Great Recession.

“Utilizing CompStak’s comprehensive lease comp data, we observed recent changes in concession trends, including a 30% increase in the free rent ratio compared to the same period last year as a result of the current pandemic,” said Lucas Winter, report author and CompStak Data Analyst.

Following the recent integration of CompStak data within the Trepp product suite, Trepp subscribers can now leverage the combination of Trepp’s extensive historical inventory of non-surveyed, CMBS loan financials and monthly servicer commentary with CompStak’s real-time analytics on critical national market and submarket leasing metrics.
