REAL estate agents believe the shire's market is emerging relatively unscathed from the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the peak of restrictions, auctions and open homes were banned and buyers and sellers confidence took a hit across the country.
However, while there may have been a quiet week or two for Leeton's five real estate businesses, the indication now is that the market is on track and moving forward.
Glenn Preston from Glenn Preston Real Estate testified to this.
"We've found it to be extremely busy ... we were quite those first two weeks after the restrictions came in at the end of March," he said.
"However, it seems like at Easter someone turned a switch on and we have been flat out ever since.
"Sales and inquiries have been great. We've had a really fantastic May."
The problem now is there's many buyers wanting to get into the Leeton market, but not as many sellers.
Luke Santolin from Leeton Real Estate said there had been some hesitation in the market in April, with some sellers putting their listings on hold.
"Overall it was a quiet month, but as the restrictions started to ease, the market took a deep breath out and it's really starting to get busy again," he said.
"To date, we have done nine new deals in May, which is almost a record month for us in any market. There's been a bit of a sling-shot effect." According to Propertyology head of research, Simon Pressley, property price growth is something that always leads a crisis recovery.
Residential real estate is the one thing which is common to 25.5 million Australians.
"For generations, governments have known that creating an environment which gives people confidence in the stability of asset values is healthy for consumer and business sentiment on the whole," Mr Pressley said.
Breed & Hutchinson's Carl King said it had proven difficult when restrictions were first imposed not just to the real estate business, but to life in general.
He said sellers and buyers weren't as confident as they typically would have been at that time of year.
However, as he has seen happen during his many years of experience with the Leeton shire market, he said the resilience in the sector was what helped push things along.
The challenge will now be to ensure the consistency continues during winter, which most see as a quieter time for the market.
However, this is the time there are genuine buyers, which bodes well for those looking to sell in Leeton shire.
"There's always that need, whatever people's circumstances are," Mr King said.
With plenty of talk about a potential dip in the metropolitan market, Mr King said it was vital residents didn't pay too much attention to that chatter.
"What may or may not happen in those markets, is different to here, we're not going to have that big crash or boom ... we're always steady here," he said.
That's a theory shared by Amato Real Estate's Gino Amato, who said his time in the industry showed Leeton to be a resilient community and the property market reflected this.
"We've had droughts, floods and now the coronavirus, but we always get through it ... we've been quite busy as well, so all of those are good signs for the future," he said.
"I think people should be confident in making a decision to either sell or buy right now. There's no reason to put it off."
In QPL Rural Leeton's first quarter report for 2020, agent Andrew Pellow said it remained a balanced market.
"There are great buying opportunities for purchasers and we are also seeing record sale prices for vendors," he said.
"Future expectation based on current social and economic conditions is that I see a slight reduction of buyers in the market, but continued balanced prices as Leeton, like many country areas, does not follow market trends of the large metropolitan centres."
