The delinquency rates for commercial and multifamily mortgages held steady between the second and third quarters, and delinquency rates for loans held in bank portfolios reached a 24-year low, according to the latest Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) Commercial/Multifamily Delinquency Report.

"Strong property fundamentals and values and ready credit availability are all helping contribute to this extraordinary performance."
