A POST-ELECTION bounce for the country's real estate market has seemingly had no impact in Leeton shire, but it's not bad news.
Agents report the sale of homes to be ticking over and prices are steady.
House price figures released earlier this month support the view there has been a turning point in the housing market across the country.
The latest rate cut from the Reserve Bank of Australia will help further in this regard.
Luke Santolin from Leeton Real Estate said national conditions weren't always reflected in Leeton.
"I've been in Leeton six years now and it's been one of the best markets I've ever worked in," he said.
"Sales are starting to tick over more now.
"At the start of the year a lot of new listings hit the market, but we just weren't selling as much as we were in the last six months to the end of 2018.
"Moving into the post-election period we've noticed listings have kept coming on at a steady rate."
Leeton currently has six properties available for rent and 64 properties for sale.
The average property prices over the last year range from $247,500 for houses to $182,500 for units.
Homes being rented out are currently being charged at around $300 per week.
Many view winter as the time not to put a house on the market given the chilly weather and instead opt for spring.
However, it can be a good idea to put a property up-for-sale during the colder months because that means less competition.
"Spring is traditionally when a lot of homes come onto the market, but in winter you're getting less competition," Mr Santolin said.
"Basically though it's always up to the seller. You have to be ready to sell, so it's really up to you when you do it.
"Interest rates always fuel conversations among people, but it doesn't really have an impact on Leeton's market."
