Anzac Day weekend slowest of the year so far: RP Data's national auction market wrap

On the back of low auction volumes, the preliminary auction clearance rate fell to the lowest reading so far this year.

Because of the ANZAC day long weekend, for the second week in a row, auction volumes across the combined capital cities were low. A total of 859 auctions were held across the capital cities, compared to 642 the previous week and the preliminary auction clearance rate fell from 65.5%t the previous week to 64.0% last week.

This is the lowest clearance rate seen so far this year and the lowest clearance rate since June last year. Volumes are expected to ramp up again over the coming week, with RP Data expecting 1,927 auctions to be held across the capital cities.

Much like last week, because auction volumes were much lower than usual, we will just provide some key stats to give a wrap up of the auction markets over the week:
