2022 Q2 Quarterly Databook
Commercial and multifamily real estate sits at the confluence of three distinct markets – space, equity and debt – all three of which are going through significant transitions, as is the U.S. economy as a whole. The second quarter was the second consecutive quarter of negative growth in real gross domestic product (GDP). The 0.6 percent decline followed a 1.6 percent drop in Q1. While two consecutive quarters of drops in GDP are often seen as a sign of recession, the Q1 decline was driven by weakness in net exports and inventories – neither of which appeared to show fundamental weakness in the economy as a whole. Expectations are that Q3 will return to positive, although slow, growth.
MBA’s Commercial Real Estate Finance (CREF) Forecast
Total commercial and multifamily mortgage borrowing and lending is expected to fall to $733 billion this year, down 18 percent from 2021 totals ($891 billion). This is according to an updated baseline forecast released July 19 by the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA).
2022 Q1 Quarterly Databook
Commercial and multifamily real estate sits at the convergence of three markets – space, equity and debt. During the first quarter of 2022, space markets continued to move out of the shadow of the early days of the pandemic while property equity and debt markets continued the momentum from 2021. As we close out the second quarter (for which data will begin to become available in coming months) all three of the markets – space, equity and debt – are in states of significant transition. The information in this quarter’s Data Book largely reflects where markets were prior to the recent “resets.”
