Strong loan-origination volume in the multifamily,
health care and industrial sectors during the past first
quarter made up for a steep drop in loan activity in
the hotel and struggling retail sectors, the Mortgage
Bankers Association said. Notably, the government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie
Mac continue to dominate in multifamily, with their
combined volumes rising 33 percent year over year.
Vice president of commercial real estate research,

“Multifamily properties remain the
key force behind overall origination
trends, and the GSEs continue to
drive multifamily originations.”
Chief economist, Reis Inc.
“Every time people tell me that retail is
dying, I ask them, ‘Have you been to
an Apple store?’”
Foreign investment in significant commercial assets
totaled $66.7 billion for the year ending March 31,
2017, which is down 33 percent from the peak level
in the latest recovery cycle, yet down just 12 percent
from the 2007 cycle, Real Capital Analytics reported.
Although foreign-investment activity has pulled
back, it still remains high by historical standards.
