Wells Fargo & Co. has issued a warning about the downward trend in the US commercial real estate market, with the bank reviewing loans for office projects worth more than $35 billion to reduce risks. The lingering effects of the work-from-home era have led to offices being vacant or underutilized, affecting rental rates for buildings. According to forecasts, US commercial real estate valuations could fall by 20% to 25% this year, with offices experiencing reductions of up to 30%.

US Commercial Real Estate Valuations Could Fall by 25% This Year

Investors and regulators, concerned about the downturn in the real estate market, are closely monitoring the situation. US$20 trillion worth of commercial real estate is currently at risk. Commercial real estate owners in the US are facing $400 billion in debt due this year due to soaring interest rates. While Wells Fargo's exposure to the office market currently stands at 4%, the bank aims to reduce cash inflows into the office market.

Various factors have led to office properties in the US struggling, including defaulting loans, failure to negotiate with lenders, and the rise of teleworking. In the first quarter of 2022, US office vacancy rates increased to 20.2%, higher than the last three months of 2021.

The office market outlook remains uncertain, and industry players are closely watching for signs of recovery. Meanwhile, banks and lenders will need to remain cautious and vigilant as they adapt to the shifting commercial real estate landscape.
