Combined capital cities record lowest clearance rate since February: CoreLogic RP Data's Shana Miller

Last week, the auction clearance rate across the combined capital cities was 71.2%, the lowest weekly clearance rate since February this year, however it was the fifth busiest week for auctions so far this year (2,654).

To put this into perspective based on reported results, last week an estimated 1,890 homes were sold as a result of an auction campaign across the nation’s capital cities. This week, CoreLogic RP Data is tracking just shy of 2,600 auctions, showing the number of homes being taken to auction remains relatively steady.

This week, Melbourne is expected to host 1,120 auctions, followed closely by Sydney with 1,068. Last week, across both cities the clearance rates fell on a week-on-week basis, down to 74.3% for Melbourne and 73.1% for Sydney. This result for Sydney was the lowest recorded so far this year; however, it still represented the second strongest result across any other capital city market.

Across Adelaide, auction volumes will rise this week, up from 89 last week to 101 this week. In Canberra, 124 auctions are scheduled this week, compared to a lower 79 last week. Meanwhile, auction volumes remain relatively steady in Perth, down slightly from 35 last week to 32 over
the current week.

Brisbane is expecting 149 auctions this week, compared to 179 last week and 154 at the same time last year.

The busiest suburb for auctions across Australia this week is located in Sydney, with 19 Mosman auctions to be held. Mount Waverley (Vic) and Reservoir (Vic) both have 18 residential auctions this week.
