The CMBS delinquency rate for U.S. commercial real estate loans in CMBS declined significantly in November, to 5.80%, reversing an 11-basis-point (bp) increase reported in October, according to Trepp. The November delinquency rate was the largest drop in ten months and the reading was the lowest level in five years.
Loans liquidated with losses totaled just over $700 million in November. Removing these resolved loans resulted in 13 bp of downward movement in the delinquency rate. Loans that cured reduced delinquencies by 22 bp, but this was mostly offset by loans that were newly delinquent. New delinquencies added about 18 bp to the delinquency rate.
