Jamie Woodwell
WASHINGTON, DC -- Commercial and multifamily mortgage lending is expected to increase in 2016, as lenders’ and borrowers’ appetites for new  loans remain strong, according to a new Mortgage Bankers Association survey of the top commercial and multifamily mortgage origination firms.

A full 90 percent of the top firms expect originations to increase in 2016, with 50 percent expecting an increase of 5 percent or more, and almost two-thirds (61 percent) expecting their own firm's originations to increase by 5 percent or more.

"Commercial mortgage lenders anticipate another competitive year in 2016, as lender desire to make loans remains strong," said Jamie Woodwell, MBA's Vice President for Commercial Real Estate Research. 

"With strong market fundamentals and the 10 year loans made during 2006 and 2007 maturing this year and next, lenders also anticipate strong demand from borrowers."

 Detailed survey results are available to members of the Mortgage Bankers Association at
