DebtX: Commercial Real Estate Loan Prices Move Higher in November

Prices for Commercial Real Estate (CRE) loans that secure US CMBS and prices for impaired performing CRE loans traded at DebtX both rose in November, according to DebtXData, the proprietary analytics platform from DebtX, the marketplace for loans.

“Most CRE loan prices rose in November due to the strengthening CRE capital markets and the downward shift in the Treasury yield curve,” said DebtX Managing Director Will Mercer. “All loan categories show significant improvement year-over-year, but recent trades show a slight divergence between performing and non-performing loans.”

DebtXData offers historical and current CRE loan prices, a quantitative measure of secondary market liquidity, new origination spreads, market commentary and analysis of selected trades transacted at www.debtx.com, the most liquid exchange for whole loans.
