Some CRE Lenders See Strength

Mortgage News

The origination of commercial real estate loans was higher at several firms last year, and much of the strength came from multifamily production. One firm reported that annual volume more than doubled.

Fannie Mae reported that its lending partners financed 2,763 multifamily loans for $24.4 billion last year. Almost all of the financing was provided through the issuance of mortgage-backed securities.

The Washington, D.C.-based company previously reported that multifamily MBS issuance climbed to $23.8 billion in 2011 from $16.4 billion the prior year.

Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., was the biggest multifamily originator through the DUS platform for Fannie in 2011.

Last year’s CRE loan production at Prudential Mortgage Capital was $9.7 billion, the Newark, N.J.-based company reported Tuesday. It was the third-best year on record. Volume improved from $9.1 billion funded during 2010.

Prudential’s loan servicing portfolio was around $66.9 billion as of Sept. 30.

Multifamily financing was $2.2 billion at Beech Street Capital LLC last year, the Bethesda, Md.-based company reported. Volume more than doubled 2010’s production.

Beech Street said that it services loans on properties in 27 states.

More than $120 million in new loan originations were funded by Hudson Realty Capital LLC last year, a news release indicated. In addition, another $400 million in loan portfolio acquisitions were made.

“In the coming 12 to 18 months, our activities will continue to focus on new originations and purchasing senior debt as there remains a bifurcation in capital available for assets in the $5 million to $35 million range in secondary and tertiary markets nationwide,” Hudson Realty Capital Managing Director Spencer Garfield said in the announcement.
