Home prices are generally affected by the same things like unemployment, interest rates, and supply and demand. What impact will the coronavirus have on these things?

If you have any questions relating to mortgage rates, real estate, or the economy, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I would love to hear from you.
