Key fundamentals in the hotel sector reached a
plateau near the end of 2017, with the new supply
and demand for rooms nearly exactly balanced,
according to real estate services company CBRE.
The projected room-occupancy rate in 2017 of
nearly 66 percent nationwide represents a new
peak, the company said. Room rates and revenues
are projected to continue to grow, but at a slower
pace than earlier in the recovery.
R. Mark Woodworth
Senior managing director, CBRE Hotels’ Americas Research
“Given the encouraging signs
concerning the domestic economy,
continued increases in lodging
demand and the measured growth
in supply, [hotel] occupancy levels
are expected to remain at their peak
in the years ahead.”
Analytics manager, Real Capital Analytics
“There are winners and losers in the
market today, and sellers are not
under pressure to sell — especially
if their asset may fetch a lower price
than they expect.”
Hotel sector achieves
new peak in 2017
Commercial banks continued to hold the largest share
of commercial/multifamily mortgages this past third
quarter, at $1.3 trillion, or 40 percent of the total debt,
the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) reported.
Notably, the total third-quarter volume of commercial
mortgage-backed securities, asset-backed securities
and collateralized debt obligations increased by $3.6 billion, up 0.8 percent from the prior quarter, MBA said.
