Top Takeaways: MBA Market Dynamics Survey
October 15, 2020

Yesterday the MBA released their results on their survey of commercial/multifamily mortgage origination firms conducted in the first week of October 2020. Our top highlights for this survey are:

  1. Borrower demand in the “very strong” category increased 4x from the prior quarter to 24% from 6%.
  2. Lenders and originators still have a “strong” and “very strong” appetite to make loans in the 4th quarter – up to 89% from 83% in the prior quarter.
  3. Industrial and Multifamily continue to be the product types borrowers and lenders have the most bullish sentiment.
  4. Outside of the agency lenders, Life Companies have the most appetite to make loans with the banks having the least desire.
