DEBTX: CMBS LOAN PRICES UNCHANGED IN FEBRUARY

BOSTON, March 27, 2018

DebtX, the largest marketplace for loans, said today that prices of commercial real estate loans underlying CMBS held steady in February.

During the month, the estimated price of whole loans securing the CMBS universe remained at 96.5% at the end of February, reflecting no change from January. Prices were 98.2% in February 2017.

“Loan prices in the CMBS universe were flat in February,” said DebtX Managing Director Will Mercer. “We can attribute this to an offset between the increase in the price of U.S. Treasuries and a tightening of credit spreads.”

As of the end of February, DebtX priced $1.17 trillion in commercial real estate loans that collateralize U.S. CMBS trusts. From last month, the median adjusted loan-to-value remained at 58%, and the median debt service coverage ratio was unchanged at 1.52. The median estimated loan yield increased to 4.6%.
