Gold and silver usually goes up when something bad happens and property is usually inverse correlated to the monetary precious metals.

What will happen to property markets if this coronavirus does keep spreading as it is doing currently?
Nothing has been fixed since 2008, it was just pushed into the future

    The Uk with its free healthcare will be an increasingly popular country for legal and illegal migrants and property prices will rise.

    Is this going to be like when SARS was going to kill everyone? Then it turned out that it only affected very crowded places with, crumbling infrastructure, poor public hygiene and inadequately funded national health care?

    Oh wait. The UK is stuffed this time around then.

    What has that got to do with the question about property prices?
    The thing about chaos is, it's fair.

    It's only going to have an impact on house prices if it kills enough Brits in a small enough area. Wipe out half a town and the supply sand demand will skew for a few years.

    This isn't going to get you on the property market, just save up like everyone else.

    I am not sure what us flu deaths has to do with uk property.
    People are living longer as we treat heart attacks, strokes and cancer. One explanation therefore is that more elderly people are dying from viruses.

    Corona virus is currently mainly killing elderly people with chronic conditions already.

    It might slow areas in and around London where there are and have been lots of Chinese buyers.
    There will be no Brexit dividend for Britain.

    That’s the first sensible point I’ve seen.
    At the moment I can’t see it affecting Russian or Malaysian buyers so would be fairly limited in its impact, but fear can Certainly have an impact.
