I got C at 49 seconds. Was that one really a 700 level question?

Must be C
"renewed rental market" corresponds well with "increased willingness of banks"

"Because of" is used for possessive noun but it is not the case here. what is the reason to use it here?

C is the answer. "Because of" should be followed by a noun phrase.

Here "the renewed rental market in the area" and "the increased willingness of banks
to lend money" are the two noun phrases and are perfectly joined by conjunction "and".

Hope I made sense.

No need to use therefore. Because is there.
after because of something happened. you need "verb" there.
