A preliminary auction clearance rate of 71.3% was recorded across the combined capital cities this week, having increased from 69.9% last week, the lowest clearance rate since the end of March.

Auction volumes were high, with a total of 2,820 auctions held over the week, up from 2,565 over the previous week. In comparison, at the same time last year, auction volumes were lower due to the AFL Grand Final in Melbourne; meaning only 1,369 auctions took place across the combined capital cities.
