Originators in the commercial and multifamily mortgage space are looking ahead into the next 12 months with expectations for another strong year, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association's (MBA) 2018 CREF Outlook Survey.
All of the respondents in the MBA’s survey stated lenders had a “strong” or “very strong” appetite to make new loans last year, with 93 percent expecting lenders to maintain a “strong” or “very strong” appetite this year—with 59 percent expecting a "very strong" appetite and 33 percent expecting a “strong” appetite. Seventy-eight percent of the leading commercial and multifamily firms polled by the MBA are expecting an increase in originations this year, with 22 percent looking to an overall increase of five percent or more across the entire market. When forecasting just their own firm's originations, nearly 47 percent predicted an increase of five percent or more in 2018.
“Mortgage bankers look to 2018 as another growth year for the commercial and multifamily mortgage markets,” said MBA Vice President for Research and Economics Jamie Woodwell, who added that while the new tax reform and regulatory relief should enhance the overall market, “rising rates are expected to be a drag.”
