Commercial Real Estate Loan Prices Decline in March CRE Loan Prices Remain In Narrow Trading Band

BOSTON, May 10, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The aggregate value of Commercial Real Estate (CRE) loans priced by DebtX that collateralize CMBS declined to 75.9% as of March 31, 2010 from 76.5% as of February 26, 2010. Loan values are down from 81.2% as of March 31, 2009.

"Loan prices were negatively impacted by the upward shift in the Treasury yield curve and the continued deterioration of CRE fundamentals, despite improvements in the CRE capital markets," said DebtX CEO Kingsley Greenland.

These loans, which collateralize 623 US CMBS trusts, received a DXMark(R), which is based on loan sales executed at DebtX, the largest marketplace for loans.
