"If it's for apartments. There's a greater availability today than there was 12 to 18 months ago. For the right property and the right sponsor, there is money available at the right leverage factor. Where we used to leverage it at 80% loan-to-cost or loan-to-value, today it's probably 60% to 70%. I've never seen the rental apartment business with the metrics as good as they are. I think the banks recognize that."
