On one hand you have Moody's REAL CPPI index telling you commercial real estate prices not only bottomed in December, but are now increasing at the fastest rate in years. On the other hand you have reality staring you in the face (that is if you are reading the February RealPoint CMBS report), in the form of $46 billion in CMBS delinquencies in January: this was a record 5.762% of total, and represents a 325% increase from the $10.8 billion inJanuary 2009 (and a 10% increase sequentially). Contrary to all propaganda punditry, the rate of deterioration in commercial real estate keeps accelerating. Oh, and this number does not include the $3 billion Stuy Town default, which will be counted for the first time in March. Look for the % of delinquent loans to hit 8%-9% within 6 months, about the time when TALF will be really needed. Too bad TALF expires the same day as Quantitative Easing for MBS ends, March 31.
