CMBS Delinquency Rate

CMBS market participants have to be extremely pleased with 2018 thus far.

Trepp, LLC, a leading provider of information, analytics, and technology to the structured finance, commercial real estate, and banking markets, has released its July 2018 US CMBS Delinquency Report. The full report can be found here:

The Trepp CMBS Delinquency Rate dropped 14 basis points to 3.81% in July, which is the reading’s new post-crisis low. Delinquencies continue to fall thanks to the resolution of distressed legacy debt and the lively pace of new loans being incorporated into the market. Since the beginning of 2018, the CMBS Delinquency Rate has jumped lower by more than 1%. Trepp researchers feel that the delinquency reading could break the 3% threshold by the end of the year.

“CMBS market participants have to be extremely pleased with 2018 thus far,” said Trepp Senior Managing Director, Manus Clancy. “Loans from the Wall of Maturities continue to be resolved briskly and with smaller losses than anticipated. New issuance has surpassed expectations as the industry grows its footprint beyond maturing debt. All of that has contributed to a lowering of the delinquency rate.”

The delinquency rate for CMBS 2.0+ loans slid up three basis points to 0.52% in July. The reading for 2.0+ debt which is seriously delinquent is now 0.42%, one basis points higher month over month. After a small increase in June, the CMBS 1.0 delinquency rate shed 79 basis points to 46.40% in July. The reading of seriously delinquent CMBS 1.0 debt decreased 82 basis points to 46.27%.

After more than two years as the best performing major property type, the multifamily sector has been dethroned. The lodging delinquency rate fell seven basis points to 2.25% in July, making it the lowest delinquency rate among the major property segments. The apartment reading climbed seven basis points to 2.35% last month. July’s largest month-over-month drop belonged to the industrial sector, as its rate jumped 46 basis points lower to 4.21%.
