The market began to deteriorate again in the spring, but has since fallen each month since reaching 8.65% in May, according to past Fitch data.

Delinquency rates on hotel (10.82%) and multifamily (10.18%) delinquency rates remain the highest, but each continued to decline last month. The rate on hotel loans dropped 64 bps in one month.
