Q4 Capital Markets Update

Deal Volume Accelerates

Low rates and excess lender liquidity has helped fuel the highest pace in commercial real estate volume in 16 years.  Multifamily has captured 35% of the volume this last month with valuations up over 10% since last year.  Strong lender appetite with aggressive rates have fueled this surge in valuations, particularly in growth markets like Dallas, Austin, Atlanta, and Nashville.  The central business district office index is down 4.5% last quarter from a year ago.  The suburban office price index jumped over 10%, showing expectations of employer movement away from city centers.  CMBS delinquencies are down to 2.50%, with retail having the highest (4.07%) and lodging the lowest (1.54%).  Lenders remain focused on tenant credit and collections history.
