The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. (FDIC) has completed more than $1 billion in CRE property sales this year ($979 million in commercial properties and $81.2 million in multifamily), according to its latest release of data. The data is through October.

Through the same time period last year, the FDIC had completed $238 billion in commercial property sales and $60.5 million in multifamily sales.

The FDIC has been dealing with the acquired assets of more than 321 failed institutions since 2007 when the Great Recession began.

Five states account for about 75% of the sales so far this year.
