Canberra was the hottest capital city weekend auction market, but one of Sydney's last remaining clifftop cottages took the top sale price.

The Canberra sales ranged between $376,000 at Calwell to $1.34 million in a pre-auction sale at Ainslie.

The top sale was a 1959 weatherboard, with brick fireplace at 75 Tyson St, Ainslie. It had last sold at $439,950 in 2002.

CoreLogic calculated the capital city preliminary clearance rate rose to 67.3 per cent, with auction activity across the capitals significantly lower.
There were 1,721 auctions held across the combined capital cities, significantly lower than the 3,026 held last week.
"The fall in auction volumes this week is due to the fact that four of the eight states and territories have a public holiday on Monday," CoreLogic auction analyst Kevin Brogan said.
"The preliminary clearance rate across the combined capital cities rose to 67.3 per cent this week, up from 63.6 per cent last week, although this will revise as more results are collected over the week.
"Over the same week last year, the clearance rate was recorded at 75.1 per cent," he said. 
The two largest auction markets, Melbourne and Sydney, saw their preliminary clearance rates rise, with Sydney at 66.6 per cent across 936 auctions and Melbourne at 72.2 per cent across 447 auctions.
