Melbourne notched up a clearance rate of 79% compared to 77% last weekend and 73% this weekend last year.

There were 763 auctions reported to the REIV on the weekend.

Auction sales have continued to track higher with around 14,000 sales so far this year, the highest on record, Enzo Raimondo the REIV chief said.

"The outer Melbourne region experienced the strongest auction sales growth in the year date, up 20 per cent from the same time last year," Enzo Raimondo advised.

The top sale was a Malvern development site after eight bidders gathered in the backyard of the five-bedroom early-1900's Edwardian home on Friday afternoon.

It sold at $4.78 million after being advertised as "an exceptional opportunity to potentially develop as a luxury apartment complex." 

It had high ceilings, Baltic pine floors and stained glass windows. The 1,045 sqm site was near Spring Road.
