The REIV is forecasting a slow auction weekend this Moomba in Melbourne.

Only 410 auctions are currently scheduled in Victoria.

However this volume is higher than the 186 auctions that took place during the Moomba/Labour day festivities in Victoria last year. 

This is significantly less than the 1,345 that took place last weekend, which was much busier than that week last year.

During that time last year, 891 auctions took place. 

Plus clearance rates were up nearly 25%, 80% compared to 57%.

The Moomba Festival this year runs from March 6th to March 9th coinciding with the long Labour Day weekend

One vendor undeterred by the festivities is auctioning off their 107/565 Flinders Street property (pictured above).

The one bedroom, one bathroom apartment sits on a 62 sqm block.

It goes to auction with a $350,000 - $370,000 price guide.

Sydney is also seeing a slowdown this week albeit not as drastic with 796 homes set to go under the hammer this week, lower than the 1,087 auctions held last week at final figures, according to CoreLogic data.

Their findings show that Perth is the only capital city market expected to see a rise in volumes over the week, with volumes set to be lower across Adelaide (-25.9%), Brisbane (-17.6%), Canberra (-50.6%) and Tasmania (1 scheduled auction)
