“It’s a great fact that, in general, 80 [to] 90 percent of our buyers are coming here internationally,” Allen said. “They’re bringing their money from South America, they’re bringing their money from Europe, they’re bringing their money from Russia, they’re bringing their money from everywhere to invest in our city.”

Traditional lenders were slow to jump into real estate lending following the 2008 financial crisis, but today, more banks are lending commercially.

“Banks are diversifying their portfolios,” Bowlby said. “The banks have gotten smarter. When we were in the peak of the recession, it was hard for any real estate developer to get a loan and that has definitely changed.”

“What has surprised me is that we’ve come out of this and the insurance companies, the hedge funds … ßare now willing to take risks that the banks used to be able to take,” Bowlby said. “There is still a lot of liquidity available to real estate developers, it’s just not all coming from commercial banks.”
