Commercial Real Estate Lending Remains Tight

Tweet [1]

The Federal Reserve released yesterday its October 2009 Senior Loan Officer Opinion Survey on Bank Lending Practices. Generally speaking, standards are still tightening at many banks, and banks are pushing out distress by extending loans.

The October survey included a special question on the status of CRE loans on banks’ books that, at the beginning of 2009, were scheduled to mature by September of this year. Among the domestic respondents that reported having such loans, about 75 percent indicated that they had extended more than one-fourth of maturing construction and land development loans, and 70 percent reported extending more than one-fourth of maturing loans secured by nonfarm nonresidential real estate. In contrast, only 15 to 20 percent of domestic banks reported that they had refinanced more than one-fourth of each of the two types of maturing CRE loans.

The full survey is embedded below for your viewing pleasure…
