Small Balance Market Resilient Heading into Latter Half of 2018
Strong economic growth, rising interest rates, and exceptionally tight labor markets contributed to lending volume reaching an annualized rate of $47.0 billion through the first half of 2018, down 5.8% from last year. Based on seasonal adjustments and forward-looking projections for the second half of the year, lending volume in 2018 is on par with 2017.
While the broader real estate market has shown signs of softness, small balance investment activity and liquidity have improved in part by this cycle’s increase in aggregate agency support.
Produced in conjunction with Chandan Economics and tailored specifically for the small multifamily investor, Arbor Chatter’s Q2 2018 Small Balance Multifamily Investment Trends Report examines current movement in:
- Origination Volume

- Cap Rates
- Debt Yields
