Description

The Association of Mortgage Bankers' latest quarterly report on commercial / multi-unit mortgages shows that the level of outstanding debt on commercial / multi-unit mortgages in the United States increased by $ 57.0 billion (1.5 percent) in the third quarter of 2020.

Total outstanding commercial / multi-family debt rose to $ 3.82 trillion at the end of the third quarter. Borrowed debt on apartment buildings alone increased by $ 31.0 billion (1.9 percent) to $ 1.6 trillion from the second quarter of 2020.

"The amount of mortgage debt backed by commercial and multi-unit real estate has increased for the 33rd consecutive quarter," said Jamie Woodwell, MBA vice president of commercial real estate research. “Despite significant declines in acquisition funding over the past two quarters, loan refinancing, especially for FHA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and bank balance sheets, helped raise overall mortgage balances. There is likely to remain uncertainty about the long-term impact of the pandemic to weigh new funding in the coming quarters. However, positive news about vaccines reflects a light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. ”

The four largest investor groups: banks and savings banks; portfolios of federal agencies and government-sponsored enterprises (GSE) and mortgage-backed securities (MBS); life insurance companies; and the issuance of commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS), secured debt obligations (CDO) and other asset-backed securities (ABS).

Commercial banks continue to account for the largest share (39 percent) of $ 1.5 trillion in commercial / multi-unit mortgages. The agency portfolios, GSE and MBS, are the second largest holders of commercial / multi-unit mortgages (21 percent) at $ 798 billion. Life insurance companies hold $ 577 billion (15 percent) while CMBS, CDO and other ABS issues hold $ 529 billion (14 percent). Many life insurance companies, banks and GSEs buy and hold CMBS, CDO and other ABS issues. These loans are reported under the CMBS, CDO, and other ABS categories.

The MBA analysis summarizes the loan holdings or, if the loans are securitized, the form of collateral. For example, many life insurance companies invest both in whole loans, for which they hold a mortgage letter (and which appear in this data in the section "Life insurance companies"), and in CMBS, CDO and other ABS, for which issuers of valuable securities and trustees hold promissory notes (and which appear here under CMBS, CDO and other ABS issues).
