Domain's Andrew Wilson said Sydney sellers are rushing the market in unprecedented numbers keen to take advantage of the current strong autumn conditions.

"Over 1150 homes are likely to go under the hammer on Saturday which will be well ahead of last weekend’s 800 auctions and significantly higher than the 523 conducted over the same weekend last year," he said.

"The previous record auction day in Saturday in Sydney was the pre-Easter Super Saturday in 2015 when 1128 homes were listed.

"Although the Easter holiday is a month later compared to last year, auctions listings have continued to rise over autumn. Sydney weekend auctions are 27.7 per cent higher or 1927 more so far this year compared to the same period last year.

"The usual pre-Easter rise in Melbourne auction activity this weekend will provide the strong local market with more opportunities for enthusiastic buyers.

"Over 1200 homes are scheduled to go under the hammer on Saturday which will be well ahead of the 947 auctioned last weekend and significantly higher than the 482 listed over the same weekend last year.

"Pre-Easter numbers however are well down this year with the holiday falling a month later compared to last year and with school holidays already under way.

"Despite lower pre-Easter offerings, weekend auction listings in Melbourne are 27.7 percent higher or 1927 more so far this year compared to the same period last year.
