CoreLogic-RP Data reported a preliminary auction clearance rate of 75.1% for Sydney on Saturday with more than 1,000 auctions held over the week.
 
APRA's cooling measures will hit lower socio-demographic areas first as lower income earners struggle with the deposit hurdle.
 
The first region to go in Sydney will be the south west, and to a lesser extent the west.
 
On the other hand the traditionally wealthier suburbs of the lower north shore, the eastern suburbs, and the inner west are poised to hold up much better. 
 
Unsurprisingly further research from the Domain Group showed that auction clearance rates held up to track at exceptionally high levels in the inner west (82.8 per cent), the lower north shore (82.3%), the northern beaches (79.6%) and the city & east region (77.9%).
 
On the other hand over the past two weeks auction clearance rates have tanked in the west (from 76.9% to just 66.3%), and particularly in the south west (from 69.8% to just 54.9%.
