Commercial bank loan concentration declines

Loan concentrations for commercial properties in Kansas fell last year.

The level of loan concentrations for commercial properties in Kansas fell last year, which may have an effect on commercial property managers in the state.

Median loan concentrations for general commercial and industrial loans fell to 65 percent in 2012, according to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. This was notably lower than the previous year's level of 70 percent. For commercial real estate as a whole, loan concentrations rose to 78.6 percent from the previous quarter's figure of 75.7 percent.

The multifamily sector in the Sunflower State had a median loan concentration increase to 1.86 percent in 2012, the report noted. This was a slight ride from the previous figure of 1.75 percent.

Despite the mixed picture in loans for the state's commercial market, the level of industrial sales in Sedgwick County increased, according to The Wichita Eagle, citing a report from the Martens Companies. In 2012, the total level of industrial sector transactions surpassed $53 million. This was similar to the nearly $52 million sold in 2007. The total space for commercial property sales in the county was 2.05 million square feet, much more than in 2007, when it was 1.73 million square feet.
