Value of U.S. commercial property slashed by 27%, Financial Times reports

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The economic effects of the coronavirus are battering the U.S. commercial-backed securities market, raising the question of the value of hotels, malls, and other buildings that act as collateral for mortgages, according to a report in the Financial Times on Sunday.

Wells Fargo estimates that U.S. properties that have gotten into trouble are being written down by 27% on average, according to the report.

Declining appraisal values could hammer portfolio managers that have moved into the commercial mortgage-backed securities market in search for yield at a time when the Federal Reserve has indicated that it will keep benchmark yields near zero until 2023 at the earliest.

1. A lot of empty restaurants and

Malls in my area. I hear there were already high risk loans on them.

2. Just the first Write Downs.

Noticed Mortgage Bonds(high yield),or Junk Bonds for Commercial Real Estate are being peddled off in ETF's . Sounds like the Wall Street Biggee's are holding tons of spoiled paper.
