The combined capital city weighted average clearance rate fell to 72.9% last week, down from 74.6% the previous week, while auction volumes rose from 2,118 to 2,248. Over the current week, CoreLogic RP Data is tracking 2,639 scheduled auctions, which will bring the total auctions for winter 2015 to over 26,500 which is the highest level on record.

This week, between Melbourne and Sydney, Australia’s two largest auction markets, there are more than 2,200 auctions scheduled, with Melbourne expecting 1,190 auctions over the week and 1,086 in Sydney. Both cities saw clearance rates fall last week with Melbourne’s final auction clearance rate down to 74.3 per cent from 76.5% the previous week. Meanwhile, Sydney’s clearance rate of 76.2% was almost identical to the result recorded one year ago (76.1%).

The number of residential auctions scheduled across Adelaide (105), Brisbane (159) and Perth (40) this week is higher than last week, while Tasmania is expecting auction volumes to remain unchanged, with 9 auctions scheduled across the state.

In Canberra, CoreLogic RP Data is currently tracking 50 auctions, a fall from last week when 75 auctions were held, but higher than at the same time last year (37). For the fourth week in a row, Canberra’s clearance rate surpassed the 70% mark, with last week’s final clearance rate for the city recorded at 71.2%.

Richmond in Victoria has the highest volume of auctions scheduled for any one individual suburb this week, with 24 properties set to go under the hammer.  Following on from this, Reservoir, also in Victoria, has 21 auctions scheduled.
