Commercial loan delinquencies fall by half in Metro Orlando

Eola Park Center, an office building at 200 E. Robinson St., in downtown Orlando, landed on Trepp's April report of delinquent commercial real estate.

The loan delinquency rate for commercial real estate properties has fallen by nearly half in the Orlando region in the last year, pushing it lower than the national average, according to Trepp LLC, which tracks data for commercial mortgage-backed securities, commercial real estate, and banking industries.

The Orlando Metro area's commercial real estate delinquency rate in April was 3.86 percent, compared to 7.44 percent in April 2014. The national rate in April was 5.57 percent, said Sean Barrie, a research analyst at Trepp.


Trepp's April report of Orlando delinquencies listed 15 properties. Here are the top three:

Victoria Place Apartments at 12612 Victoria Place Circle in Orlando had the largest loan balance of the 15 properties on the list at $44.18 million and is described as real estate owned (REO), which Barrie said is properties where the lender has taken back ownership from the borrower and is holding the property on its books. The owner is listed as CW Capital Asset Management, which did not return GrowthSpotter's phone call for more information on the property.


The Orange County Property Appraiser lists the Waterford Lakes complex's market value in 2014 as $36.11 million. There was an unqualified sale in 2011 for $20,100, and a sale before the property was developed in 2001 was $2.98 million.
