Sydney's busiest September auction Saturday on record had 900 plus homes listed to go under the hammer, well ahead of the 832 listed last weekend and the 723 auctioned over the same weekend last year.

The recent surge in supply has helped ease auction clearance rates, to their lowest in three years. 

APM's preliminary 729 results put the clearance rate at 69.6%.  

Domain Group’s senior economist, Dr Andrew Wilson said the market was evolving into a buyer’s market.

“Sydney’s great auction boom has clearly ended,” he said. 

Last weekend's preliminary clearance rate of 71.3% was revised down again

It was lower than the 72.4% recorded the previous weekend and significantly below the 83.9% reported over the same weekend last year. 

APM had the inner west as hosting the highest number of auctions on Saturday with 139 listings.

The next highest is the upper north shore with 130 followed by the south with 127, the city and east 111, the lower north 86, the west 84, the south west 74, the northern beaches 70, Canterbury Bankstown 66, the north west 59, the central coast 23 and the Blue Mountains 1.

The leading suburb for auctions this weekend was again Mosman with 17 followed by Baulkham Hills and Ashfield each with 13, Chatswood, Manly and Redfern each with 11 and a number of suburbs with 10 auctions listed on Saturday including Bexley, Carlingford, Blacktown and Paddington.
