Capital city auction clearance rates fell last week, down to 73.6 per cent from 74.4 per cent.

The fall occurred on the back of a fairly significant increase in auction volumes which rose from 2,253 the previous week to 2,517 last week.

Melbourne’s auction clearance rate was recorded at 76.1 per cent last week, down from 77.5 per cent over the previous week.

In Sydney, last week’s final auction clearance rate was recorded at 78.8 per cent which was the first reading below 80 per cent in four weeks and down from 80.5 per cent the previous week.

Across the smaller auction markets, performance was mixed last week, with clearance rates improving in Brisbane and Canberra but falling in Adelaide and Perth.

The Hunter region was the busiest non-capital city region last week, with 74 auctions, however Geelong recorded the strongest clearance rate at 80 per cent which was actually higher than Melbourne’s clearance rate.
