Commercial debt rises in the third quarter

Commericial and multifamily debt rose in the third quarter with three out of the four investor classes increasing holdings, the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) reported.

The debt increased to $2.76 trillion, up by 1.4 percent or $38 billion from the second quarter, MBA said. Commercial banks, the government-sponsored enterprises Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and life insurance companies all increased holdings, while the investor class consisting of commercial mortgage-backed and other securities declined.

The increase was mostly driven by the volume of loans added to bank portfolios.

"Banks accounted for 85 percent of the total increase, adding $32 billion to their holdings of commercial real estate loans, the largest amount since the series began in 2007,"  MBA analyst Jamie Woodwell said.
