Numbers from Delta Associates and Real Capital Analytics indicate the volume of distressed commercial real estate properties has been at a standstill around $186.9 billion for a number of months, according to this article.

On one hand, this plateau is positive since the volume of distressed properties isnbt getting significantly higher. But looking toward the future, Delta Associates expects the volume of distressed properties wonbt start to go down until 2012.

As reports,

bTo that end, Delta notes that the distress plateau began in the spring, but it doesnbt foresee any meaningful progress until 2012, as lenders continue to extend debt obligations, and commercial property values are stabilizing in many markets.b

Do you see the plateau as good or bad news for the commercial real estate industry? Leave a comment to share your thoughts.
