We can tell that the holidays are just around the corner because the sales and lending have slowed. This past week our office recorded 375 loans and 224 property transfers. The 375 loans equaled $91.9 million which seems like a lot until you compare with the previous week’s total of $165.1 million. Property transfers were also close to the previous week in number and not too far off in dollar amounts. The week of Nov. 16, 2019, ended with $61.24 million dollars in transfers compared to the previous week’s $67.19 million.

The largest commercial property deal was a $6.8 million-dollar sale between Lease Fund I LLC and 5320 Clinton Highway LLC for the Walgreens property located at the corner of Merchant Drive and Clinton Highway. This transfer was also the largest loan acquired during the week, $5.23 million from BSPRT CMBS Finance LLC.
