Yardi Matrix Reveals $525 Billion Multifamily Loan Maturity Wave by 2029

A new Yardi Matrix report reveals a staggering $525 billion in multifamily property loans set to mature by 2029, casting a shadow over nearly half of the sector's $1.1 trillion debt portfolio.

Coming due: Over the next five years, more than 58,000 multifamily properties, representing nearly half of the sector's $1.1 trillion in outstanding loans, are on the maturity docket. In the shorter term, nearly $150 billion in loans across 6,800 properties are due by the end of 2025.

Zoom in: Property owners face daunting refinancing conditions, including elevated interest rates, declining property values, and slowing rent growth due to an influx of new units. The burden of maturing debt is unevenly distributed across the US. Atlanta leads with a looming $34.9 billion, followed by Dallas at $26.6 billion, with Denver, Houston, New York City, and Chicago close behind.

On the horizon: Yardi's database reveals that $61.8 billion in loans will mature in 2024, with a peak of $107.3 billion set for 2028. There's a wide range in the timing and source of these loans: nearly half of the debt-fund loans will mature by the end of 2025, and around a quarter of loans from commercial banks and CMBS will do the same. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans make up the bulk of the maturities but with a longer timeline, mostly extending beyond five years.


Why it matters: The financial landscape of multifamily is shifting under the pressure of rising interest rates. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans have seen their delinquency rates increase from 0.1% to 0.4% since before the 2022 rate hikes. The jump in CMBS loan delinquencies is even more pronounced, soaring from 1% to 1.8% in just over a year. With Fitch forecasting CMBS delinquencies potentially hitting $1.3 billion—a figure eclipsing pandemic-related losses—the once beloved sector is facing heightened financial stress.

Manhattan Rents Hit February High Amid Strong Apartment Demand

A robust economy and soaring mortgage rates propelled NYC rents to unprecedented levels (over $4,000 monthly) in February.

Record rents: In Manhattan, the median rent surged to $4,230, up 3% from last year’s $4,095 median rent. Brooklyn followed suit with a median rent of $3,499, also up 3% compared to the previous year, as highlighted in a report by Douglas Elliman and Miller Samuel. 

Borough trends: Despite stagnant rents at $3,239, Northwest Queens witnessed a remarkable rise in lease signings, drawing attention from Manhattan and Brooklyn dwellers and developers. The area registered a record 591 new leases in February, marking an 18% YoY increase. 

Market dynamics: Escalating mortgage rates, currently averaging 6.88% for a 30-year loan, have steered potential buyers towards renting. Manhattan saw a 7.7% rise in new lease signings YoY, while Brooklyn boomed with 62.2% more signings. Manhattan’s rental inventory also saw a notable surge, with nearly 8K units on the market, 33.1% more than in February 2023. 


The rising tide: Despite falling rates anticipated later this year, the looming presidential election has created a sense of hesitation among buyers. Landlords are adjusting their strategies as lease concessions in Manhattan dropped to 13%, down from 16% in January and 14.2% last year. But no matter what happens, one thing’s for sure—all roads still lead to NYC.


Once again, CRE yields are widening the gap with treasury notes. After interest rates surged in 2022, the yield spread over the 10-year treasury fell from 540 bps in 2020 to about 200 bps. But in 2023, when CRE prices began declining, the yield spread started to widen once more.
