CoStar Says Distressed Loan Levels Could Triple

The distressed loan situation in commercial real estate is taking a striking turn for the worse, according to a CoStar Group analysis of December loan information on more than 83,000 loans in commercial mortgage backed securities.

The level of distressed loans in the CMBS universe was at historically low, and unsustainable levels, in 2008 - less than 1% of outstanding loans. That compares favorably to the level of commercial real estate distress in bank and thrifts where distressed properties made up about 2.32% of their nonresidential portfolios as of Sept. 30.

However, that level of safety in the CMBS universe looks like it could be eroding rapidly.
