According to the Mortgage Bankers Association’s (MBA) Quarterly Survey of Commercial/Multifamily Mortgage Bankers Originations, second quarter 2015 commercial/multifamily mortgage loan originations were 29 percent higher than during the same period last year and 16 percent higher than the first quarter of 2015.

“Driven by increasing property values, improving property fundamentals and still low interest rates, commercial and multifamily lending and borrowing continued its strong pace in the second quarter,” said Jamie Woodwell, MBA’s Vice President of Commercial Real Estate Research. “The rate of year-over-year growth slowed from the first quarter, but year-to-date lending is up for every major lender group.  Mortgage bankers’ originations for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are near record quarterly levels.”
