There has been "no major influence to the (property) market" from the coronavirus at this stage but it has been changing operations such as inspections and open houses, according to Horsham real estate agents.
Coller Rathgeber Property Group director Tim Coller said the business was holding regular meetings with staff to discuss how to limit the exposure to clients.
"Any property owners or tenants who consider themselves high risk for any reason we're excluding from any inspections," he said. "The same thing is applying to (buyers) or tenants wanting to look through property.
"We've had a couple of tenants who have voiced concern because of ailments or whatever and we've given them our guarantee that we won't be going against those wishes (by proceeding with rental inspections)."
He said any concerns about the ability of tenants to pay rent due to job insecurity would be discussed with their property manager and landlord to find the best solution.

Mr Coller said he could see in the future that they might cease inspections for open houses and rental properties if advice changed but they had hygiene measures in place in the interim.
"Open houses will continue with sanitising gel. We are asking clients when they inspect properties not to touch any surfaces," he said.
"We're wearing gloves and opening doors and things like that to facilitate the inspection."
Mr Coller said the start of the year had seen "two of the strongest months" they had experienced for "quite some time" and that March had also been "extremely busy" with "sales statistics tracking average".

He said the commitment was still there from buyers at this stage.
"It just will depend if the restrictions that we need to put in place to protect our staff and our customers and clients will sort of prevent them from being able to inspect properties," he said.
"Certainly at this stage there doesn't seem to be any lack of desire from buyers to inspect properties."
Mr Coller didn't rule out the possibility of virtual inspections or other methods to sell homes as an alternative.
"This event could change the whole industry depending on how long it lasts and how long there are restrictions on access to homes and things like that," he said.
"Certainly at the moment we are just following traditional methods."
