Annual commercial real estate lending moved up last year, while quarterly production ascended to the highest level in over a decade.

CRE loan originations, including commercial mortgages and multifamily loans, amounted to an estimated $566 billion during all of 2017, more than $491 in 2016.

But this year, CRE loan production is expected to ease compared to last year, with the forecast for 2018 coming in at $549 billion in total volume.
