Commercial and multifamily loan delinquencies were up in the fourth quarter, according to a report by the Mortgage Bankers Association. The 30-day delinquency rate was 1.17% in the fourth quarter, up 0.54 percentage points, while the 60-day delinquency rate rose for a variety of different loan types. "Job losses, reduced retail spending and problems in the single-family housing market all affected the property markets and increased delinquency rates," said Jamie Woodwell, vice president of commercial real estate research for the Mortgage Bankers Association.
