Scheduled auctions increasing, but still fewer than a year ago: CoreLogic

There has been a substantial increase in scheduled auctions this week relative to the 853 auctions last week, with CoreLogic tracking 2,161 auctions across the combined capital cities this week.

In both Sydney and Melbourne, the two major auction markets, auction activity is up week-on-week, with 1,085 Melbourne auctions scheduled and 731 homes set to be taken to auction across Sydney.

Despite a surge in scheduled auctions, there are fewer than the 3,016 which occurred a year ago.

Across the smaller cities, auction activity is higher across each of those cities than it was a week ago.

Capital city auctions this week:

• Sydney: 731

• Melbourne: 1,085

• Brisbane: 150

• Adelaide: 95

• Perth: 30

• Canberra: 60

Reservoir in Melbourne is the busiest individual suburb for auctions across the nation this week, with 20 residential homes set to go under the hammer.

Glen Waverley is also quite bust with 17 auctions whilst Bentleigh East, Essendon, Mount Waverley and Pascoe Vale each have 14 scheduled auctions.

Summary of last week’s results:

Capital city auction clearance rates increased last week to 75.8 percent on the back of low volumes due to long weekends and the AFL and NRL grand finals. Last week there were 872 capital city auctions, down from 2,480 the previous week.

Melbourne’s auction clearance rate was recorded at 87.2 percent last week, up from 77.2 percent the previous week. In Sydney, the final results show an auction clearance rate of 82.5 percent up from 80.4 percent over the previous week.

The low volumes resulted in higher clearance rates across both of the largest auction markets and pushed clearance rates above 90 per cent in many regions of both cities.

Across the smaller auction markets, auction clearance rates were lower last week in all regions except for Perth. Despite the fall, Adelaide has maintained a strong clearance rate above 75 per cent.The Sunshine Coast region was the busiest non- capital city region last week, with 52 auctions, however Wollongong recorded the strongest clearance rate at 78.6 percent.
