The U.S. Commercial Mortgage Market Shrinks Again to 3.31 Trillion dollars: The size of the commercial mortgage loan market in the U.S. continued its shrinkage in the first quarter, to $3.31 trillion from $3.34 trillion at the end of last year, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association's analysis of Federal Reserve Board flow-of-funds data. The commercial mortgage market has now shrunk for 5 straight quarters and is now about the same size it was in late 2007. Every major investor group, except the housing-finance agencies, private pensions, savings institutions and government entities, saw a drop in their mortgage portfolios. Commercial banking groups saw an $18.9 billion, or 1.3% reduction in the size of their portfolios, to $1.49 trillion. They are still the largest holders of loans, accounting for 44.9% of the entire universe, down from 45.1% at the end of the fourth quarter. CMBS and other securitization vehicles saw their portfolio of mortgages shrink by 1.6 percent over the last quarter to $679 billion. That accounts for 20.5% of the market, down from 20.6% in the fourth quarter. Life-insurance companies, which lately have become eager to write loans but have faced tepid demand, saw their holdings fall by $4.4 billion, or 1.4%, to $301.9 billion. They now hold 9.1% of the total universe, down slightly from 9.2% at the end of last year. The housing-finance agencies, meanwhile, saw their portfolios grow by $5.8 billion, or 1.9%, to $309 billion. That represents 9.3% of the commercial mortgage market, up from 9.1% in the fourth quarter. If you look at only multifamily loans, the agencies - Fannie, Freddie and agency-backed mortgage pools - hold 36.3% of the $852.1 billion market. That market is up from $849 billion in the 4th quarter - proving that the agencies continue to actively write loans. "Low levels of commercial mortgage financing mean that property investors are paying off and paying down more in mortgage loans than they are taking out," explained Jamie Woodwell, VP of commercial real estate research at the MBA.
