There were 9868 auctions over winter in Melbourne, with an overall auction clearance rate of 71 per cent, according to Domain.

Domain economist Dr Andrew Wilson said hxpected clearance rates in Melbourne to remain above 70 per cent but said, overall, the market may not perform as well as last spring, when buyers were motivated by recent interest rate cuts.

“It’s certainly not as strong as the budget market, particularly the inner east,” he said.

“There’s a real sense the [inner-east] market has topped out.”
