    I was on Fox News with Tom Sullivan yesterday to discuss the housing “recovery.” Rick Sharga (formerly of RealtyTrac and now Carrington Mortgage Holdings) was the guest before me and said that we are witnessing the sustainable recovery of the housing market. I simply pointed out that the “recovery” thus far is dominated by hedge funds, corporations, cash transactions and foreign investors and not the traditional family purchase of housing. So, it may be a recovery, but not your father’s Oldsmobile (so to speak). And don’t forget the fiscal cliff and the large volume of foreclosed properties about to hit...

    Commercial Real Estate Clouded by Delinquencies Published: Wednesday, 4 May 2011 | 1:28 PM ET By: Diana Olick CNBC Real Estate Reporter Barely a few minutes after reading an article in the Wall Street Journal about banks finally opening the "spigot for commercial real-estate," the folks over at Trepp issued their monthly report on the delinquency rate for commercial mortgage backed securities (CMBS); let's just say it isn't good. After two months of very minimal rate increases, the number jumped in April, 23 basis points, to 9.65 percent, "the highest reading in the history of the CMBS market," according to...

    The Washington Post ^ | April 5, 2010 | V. Dion Haynes
    Evidence of the federal government's growing influence on Washington area commercial real estate is illustrated in big deals it is working on both sides of the table: auctioning a 127,000-square-foot Bethesda building previously occupied by the National Institutes of Health and moving to snatch up vast spaces in buildings on the private market that have been vacant for months. The General Services Administration is seeking to unload the 10-story building that the NIH vacated in 2002 when it consolidated offices into other buildings in Bethesda. The recommended opening bid for the online auction, which runs from April 30 to July...

    On top of the previously announced record delinquency rate for Fannie, here comes some even worse news out of commercial real estate, which together with record high downtown vacancy rates, should be enough to push all REITs to 1052 week highs tomorrow. RealPoint has just released its March CMBS delinquency data, according to which delinquencies hit an all time high 6%. Not to be ignored, according to TREPP this number is even worse, at nearly 8%, after the single biggest monthly spike in 30 day + delinquencies. In February 2010, the delinquent unpaid balance for CMBS increased by another $1.87...

    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...

    CMBS Delinquencies Soar, Led by Hotel Defaults: Trepp 12/04/2009BY: CARRIE BAY The secondary market for commercial real estate is just beginning to show new life, with the first successful sale of a commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) package in over a year and several new issues in the wings spurred by the strong investor interest on that initial offering. But the positives of renewed activity are tempered by more bad news on the performance of those commercial bond deals made before the freeze. According to a new report from commercial research provider Trepp, delinquent loans in commercial mortgage securities jumped 85...
