San Diego home prices

Well, this should come as no surprise, a recent report shows that the coronavirus pandemic is causing many buyers and sellers to delay their potential purchases and sales of their homes. Actually, home purchase demand is at a five-year low!

Because of the extremely low home mortgage interest rates, refinance applications are still remaining high.
