Prices for non-performing and impaired performing commercial real estate (CRE) loans climbed higher in October, according to DebtXData, the proprietary analytics platform from DebtX, a marketplace exchange for whole loans.
""Loan prices rose again in October due to the continuing recovery in the CRE capital markets and steady demand for product from a broad range of investors,"" said Will Mercer, managing director for Boston-based DebtX. ""Non-performing and impaired performing CRE loans are up strongly from a year ago.""
