Whether you own a home, you’re looking to buy a home, or you have income tied up in the real estate markets, the COVID-19 crisis has created huge shockwaves and a lot of uncertainty and fear throughout the industry. Many are at a standstill; wondering whether Coronavirus could cause a housing collapse as we saw during the financial crisis of 2008.
