DebtX: Commercial Real Estate Loan Prices Stable

Prices for Commercial Real Estate (CRE) whole loans securing the US CMBS universe rose modestly in January, while impaired performing and non-performing loans sold through Boston-based DebtX declined slightly.

“CRE loan pricing was mostly flat in January,” said DebtX Managing Director Will Mercer. “The modest increase in loan prices securing the CMBS universe was primarily due to improving loan-to-value ratios, despite the upward shift in the yield curve.”

DebtX’s 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 liquid exchange for whole loans.
