As the government announces a ban on open homes and auctions those looking to buy and sell are encouraged to continue to do so.
On Tuesday night the Australian Government announced open homes and auctions would no longer take place due to the spread of coronavirus.
Peter Russell, director of Integrity Real Estate in Nowra said the restrictions will impact on the process of buying and selling.
"Cancelling open homes is having an effect on the numbers of people who can inspect a property per week, but the industry can still conduct general inspections and these numbers have increased dramatically as a result," he said.
"It will be more invasive for people selling their homes because they will have to make sure their homes are ready for inspection on more than one day of the week."
Despite a slight dip in sales there has been an increase in enquiries from Sydney residents looking to purchase on the South Coast.
"General inquiries are reducing but the percentage of inquiries from people in Sydney has increased dramatically," he said.
"We're finding that the inquiries coming through are very genuine when traditionally real estate has a lot of people inquiring but they don't do anything for 12 to 18 months."
Craig Hadfield, director of Ray White in Nowra said the new restrictions aren't making much of an impact on the South Coast market.
"In our marketplace you very rarely see more than three or four people at an open house anyway it's not like Sydney where you have dozens of people coming through," he said.
"Indeed private inspections make the logistics a bit more challenging but we've been doing it for years, we just need to be a little more organised."
However, there are bigger concerns for the real estate sector as the industry waits for the government to announce new legislation for tenants and landlords.
"Ray White in Nowra manages 900 homes and how new legislation helps tenants and landlords will have a major impact on the industry and property market," Mr Hadfield said.
"We provide essential services because it is everyone's human right to have a home, especially for tenants.
"Agents will have to continue to provide those services even if the company goes into lockdown because we are the middle-man when that toilet bursts at a rental property."
With many left queuing at Centrelink over the past week the concern for workers and job security is high.
Mr Hadfield said Ray White was dedicated to ensuring a solid business for the future.
"I have 30 staff and the only thing I am concerned with is how we can all get through this together," he said.
"Staff just want employment and if that means a temporary lay off or reducing hours they would much rather that then joining the end of that long queue.
"There is no simple solution but whatever decision is made will impact everywhere."
Although the uncertainty of unemployment is being felt everywhere there may be light at the end of the property tunnel when it is all over.
"We need to think that as every slow down occurs it always ramps back up just as fast. So while there might be a potential lull, there will definitely be a surge at the end when it finishes," Mr Russell said.
