The aggregate value of commercial real estate (CRE) loans priced by DebtX that collateralize commercial mortgage-backed securities increased to 88.4% as of June 30, slightly up from 88.2% as of May 31. Loan values were 84.9% as of June 30, 2011.Â
In June, DebtX priced 54,946 CRE loans with a $766.1 billion aggregate principal balance. These loans collateralize 742 U.S. CMBS trusts, according to DebtX.
‘Commercial real estate loan prices rose for a seventh straight month in June and have continued the upward trend of the past 15 months,’ says DebtX CEO Kingsley Greenland. ‘Rising prices have prompted a growing number of sellers to take advantage of liquidity in the marketplace. It remains a good time to sell due to strong investor demand.’
