Auction volumes are set to rise this week, with CoreLogic RP Data tracking 2,250 auctions, up from 2,118 last week. The number of homes going to auction this week is 33 per cent higher than one year ago, when 1,695 auctions were held. Last week, the final auction clearance rate across the combined capitals fell to 74.6 per cent after 76.9 per cent of auctions were successful the previous week.

Melbourne is expecting 962 residential auctions this week, higher than both last week (908) and last year (758). Melbourne’s clearance rate last week was 76.5 per cent, down two percentage points when compared to the previous week. Meanwhile, across Sydney, Australia’s second largest auction market, the final auction clearance rate fell last week to 77.3 per cent, after having recorded a strong preliminary result. Auction volumes remain steady across the city this week, with 916 expected, compared to 915 the previous week and much higher than last year when 641 Sydney homes were taken to auction.

This week, Adelaide is the only city where the number of auctions expected (79) is lower than last week (83). The cities clearance rate fell substantially last week, down from 77.4 per cent the previous week to 68.1 per cent.

Across all other capital cities, auction markets are busier this week. Brisbane has 160 auctions scheduled, up from 130 last week; Canberra is expecting 77 auctions, compared to 50 last week, while Perth will be host to 41 auctions this week, up from 27 last week. This week, there will be 14 auctions held across Tasmania, compared to just 5 last week.

The suburb with the most auctions scheduled this week across Australia is Mount Waverley (Vic), where 18 residential auctions are scheduled to take place. Following on from this is the neighboring suburb of Glen Waverley where 17 homes are up for auction.
