MLCFC 2006-4: A bad deal gets some good news

Park LaBrea apartments in L.A. paid off with $18MM of yield maintenance, giving someone at Freddie Mac a good day.  Shortfalls were replenished down to class G.  Still, there were $60MM in losses on two other crap loans, which fully wrote down class H.  Still not an AJ I would recommend to Grandma!

Another winner from the folks that brought you ... every other post-2006 BACM deal.  This is a 10 year I/O with 22 months left to go that recently lost a tenant,  According to the data, the Sponsor on the loan is none other than "None".

WBCMT 2007-C30: we have another winner!!!

This deal is already being shorted to the AJ, largely thanks to the Stuy Town appraisal reduction.

Transaction: WBCMT 2007-C30
Property: Eastland Center
City/State: Harper Woods, MI
Property Type: Retail
Balance: $37,469,051
Percentage of Deal: 0.55%
Maturity Date: October 11, 2016
MS: Wells Fargo
SS: CW Capital Asset Management
Reason for Transfer: Imminent Non-Monetary Default
On Servicer Watchlist Prior to Transfer: Yes
Previously in Special Servicing: No
Previously Modified: No

The loan matures in a year and a half.  The watchlist comment says nothing about why a non-monetary default is imminent.  Obviously, a mall built in 1957 is likely not attracting tier 1 tenants. Anyone feel like doing some research, or is it going to have to be me?
