In total this week, 867 capital city homes were scheduled for auction, with preliminary results returning a 65.9 per cent clearance rate, according to CoreLogic data.

In Melbourne, 259 homes were scheduled to go under the hammer this week. So far 192 auctions have been reported, returning a preliminary success rate of 71.9 per cent.

Notably 31 auctions were withdrawn in Sydney last week, the most since mid-April.

Although the number of auctions held remains low, since restrictive policies around open homes and onsite auctions were lifted, the trend has been towards more auctions held and a substantial reduction in the proportion of auctions withdrawn prior to the event.

The number of auctions held this week was the highest since the week ending April 19th.
