The combined capital city weekend clearance rate remained in the high 70s, despite auction volumes reaching the highest level so far this year

The larger number of auctions was driven by a substantial rise across the Sydney and Melbourne markets, while there was a small decrease across the smaller capital cities.

The strongest clearance rates, based on preliminary data, were in Sydney and Canberra, where 83 per cent and 81 percent of auctions returned a successful result.

Melbourne recorded a strong preliminary clearance rate, with 76 percent of auctions clearing, just below the 77 percent national average.

The preliminary combined capital city clearance rate was higher on the weekend than the 71 percent in same period last year.

The 2,280 auctions held was lower as 2,347 auctions were held over the same time last year.

Across Melbourne, this week’s preliminary clearance rate was recorded at 76.7 percent, up from 75.9 percent last week and also higher the clearance rate recorded over the same week last year (74.1 percent).

This week, Melbourne was host to 1,103 auctions, higher than the 556 held last week, and only marginally lower than what was seen one year ago, when there were 1,105 Melbourne auctions held over the week.

This weekend in Melbourne, the number of properties for sale is expected to rise to 1400 with Domain's Dr Andrew Wilson suggesting the listings were big for February when auctions were usually only just starting to build up again.

The North Sydney and Hornsby region hosted the most auctions of any Sydney sub-region this week, with 137 properties taken to auction.

"It's another extraordinary result for Sydney," Domain chief economist Dr Andrew Wilson told Domain.
