The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) today released its Commercial Real Estate/Multifamily Finance Quarterly Data Book for the third quarter of 2009. Though technically the third quarter likely marked the end of the recession, strains on various parts of the commercial/multifamily real estate market continue to be felt. This analysis focuses on the overall state of the economy and the resulting impacts on real estate fundamentals, mortgage originations, mortgage debt outstanding and mortgage performance in the third quarter.

The Data Book compiles the most up-to-date information on topics of interest to commercial/multifamily real estate finance industry participants and observers including trends in property sales, originations, delinquencies and mortgage debt outstanding. For the full analysis please click here.
