Strong February auction activity in capital cities: CoreLogic

It has been strong week for auction activity across the capital cities, with the number of auctions more than doubling compared with last week in Sydney and Melbourne, according to CoreLogic's latest report.

The property data firm says that despite the surge in the number of auctions held, the combined capitals region recorded a preliminary auction clearance rate of 76.6 percent.

This is up from last week, when the final clearance rate dipped to 68.7 per cent.

Auction volumes saw a significant increase over the week, with volumes rising week-on-week across all of the capital cities, with the exception of Adelaide which saw a decrease over the week.

There were 1,564 properties taken to auction across the combined capital cities this week, compared to last week’s 881.

At the same time last year, auction volumes were lower, with 1,400 capital city auctions held with a lower rate of clearance (71.8 per cent).

The two largest auctions markets, Sydney and Melbourne, recorded a preliminary clearance rate of 84.8 per cent and 75.4 per cent respectively.

This suggests that vendors are still very much in the driver’s seat across these markets.
