Snippet about the size of the US CRE market (used for future article)

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
