50 attendees allowed at Victorian onsite weekend auctions

Auction attendance restrictions are soon to be eased further in Victoria.

The Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews announced on Sunday that up to 50 people will be allowed at public auctions — up from 20 —  from midnight on June 21.

On-site real estate auctions were able to go ahead from mid-May but limited to 10 people, plus the minimum amount of people required to facilitate the sale and those selling the house.

On-site auctions had been banned since March, when restrictions began.

The lack of auctions saw buyer activity plummet in Melbourne, with online auctions struggling to replace their in-person counterparts.
