Local residents are helping to buoy the region's strong rural market by purchasing neighbouring properties.
Elders Real Estate Albury Rural Henry Mackinnon said the current market is booming with a number of district records set in recent weeks.
"The market is pretty hot," he said.
"I think there's a lot of appetite for more land particularly in the Upper Murray from local buyers.
"Each property sold up there [recently] was bought by local families.
"There's been out of region interest but locals seem to be the ones winning come crunch time.
"It's probably based on the security of the area, locals are seeing how valuable land is and know if they don't buy now they probably won't be able to buy it in the future."

Mr Mackinnon said high commodity prices and low interest rates had created the 'perfect storm' for agricultural real estate.
He expects the market strength to continue until interest rates rise.
"At the moment money is cheap and people are able to borrow money while all the fundamentals are aligning," he said.
