BOSTON, July 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DebtX, the largest marketplace for loans, said today that prices of commercial real estate loans underlying the CMBS universe remained steady in May.
"For the second consecutive month, CMBS loan prices held firm, despite a small upward shift in the yield curve," said DebtX Managing Director Will Mercer. "Any movement in rates was largely offset by spread adjustments. It will be interesting to see if that correlation holds up in June's numbers."
As of the end of May, DebtX had priced $880 billion in commercial real estate loans that collateralize US CMBS trusts. The estimated price of whole loans securing this universe was 99.3% at the end of May, reflecting no change from 99.3% at the end of April. Prices were 95.6% in May 2014.
Median adjusted loan-to-value increased to 58% in April and median debt service coverage ratio remained at 1.44. Median estimated loan yield remained at 4.1%.
