    The Fed estimates that the size of the US commercial property market is 6.5 trillion dollars, or approximately one-third the size of the housing market. Commercial property loans outstanding are an estimated 3.3 trillion dollars, also roughly one-third of the 10.0 trillion dollars in residential mortgages outstanding. Of the commercial real estate loans outstanding, over half are held by commercial banks, with these loans constituting a very important part of the regional banks’ balance sheets. Approximately 25% of commercial property loans are securitized, with most of the remainder being held by life insurance and savings companies. - source: Oxford Analytica
