The weekend preliminary auction average clearance rate has risen to 77 percent on the second last Autumn weekend, according to CoreLogic’s latest report.

Auction activity across the combined capital cities increased this week, up from 2,409 auctions last week, to 2,794 this week, making it the sixth busiest week this year.

This week's weighted average clearance rate across the combined capitals was 77.2 percent, increasing from a final clearance rate of 72.8 percent over the previous week.

At the same time last year, both volumes (1,920) and the clearance rate (68.9 percent) were lower.

The two largest auction markets, Melbourne and Sydney, saw their preliminary clearance rates rise, with Sydney at 80.7 percent and Melbourne at 79.2 percent, although Kevin Brogan, the CoreLogic auction analyst said that Sydney, and to a lesser extent Melbourne, tend to revise down over the week when the remaining results are captured.

Over the previous week, Sydney’s preliminary clearance rate of 79.4 percent was revised down to 74.5 percent when finalised.

Across the smaller capital city markets, Brisbane was the only city where preliminary clearance rates fell week-on-week so again it will be interesting to see how the clearance rates hold when the final figures are released on Thursday.
