Start Closing Small-Balance Commercial Mortgages in 2018

Commercial and multifamily mortgage originations are expected to decline slightly in 2018, but will remain strong according to the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA).

MBA projects that these originations will end the year at $519 billion, down just 2% from 2017 levels. MBA expects volumes to remain at the 2018 level in 2019 as well.

“Last year was a record for commercial and multifamily borrowing and lending,” said Jamie Woodwell, MBA’s Vice President of Commercial Real Estate Research. “Lending terms remain extremely attractive and we expect another strong year in 2018, although perhaps not quite as strong as 2017.”

Given the expected strength of the commercial and multifamily mortgage markets, now is a great time for brokers still on the fence to begin closing these loans. The small-balance commercial mortgage niche is a great place for beginners looking to expand their business and increase their income.
