"Though the New York City rental market experienced headwinds during the COVID-19 pandemic, the market has successfully absorbed more than 60,000 new units that were delivered over the past four years. With vacancies at near record lows, this lending opportunity was very attractive to the capital markets," said Walker & Dunlop's Jonathan Schwartz.
