Measuring the Impact of COVID-19 on Twin Cities Residential Housing Market.

After hitting a record low last week, rates on 30-year fixed-rate mortgages rose
slightly this week according to Freddie Mac. A combination of an increase in rates
in the bond market and high demand for refinancing and purchase mortgages
contributed to the uptick. Meanwhile, the continued spread of COVID-19 is leading
many companies and consumers to change their daily activities. ShowingTime is
closely monitoring the situation and releasing daily updates on changes in showing
