CMBS disposition volume surged to $1.4 billion in June, according to Trepp, following a 12-month low in May. Deal activity revealed 57 loans paid off with losses, while the average loan size rose to a multi-year high of $24.8 million.
Heavy losses within the retail sector caused the average loss severity to rise by nearly 12 percentage points to 36.69%. However, loss severity is still relatively low compared to this year’s high of 57.8% in January.
