This week will be the busiest for capital city auction markets since the week prior to Easter, with 2,419 auctions currently being monitored by CoreLogic.

Compared to last week, auction volumes are higher in each individual capital city market and have almost doubled in Melbourne, up from 602 last week to the current scheduled number of 1,233. 

This week is set to be the busiest for auctions in six weeks for Adelaide, Canberra and Perth, while the number of homes being taken to auction across Brisbane remains relatively steady. Sydney, the nation’s second busiest auction market has 763 auctions scheduled this week. 

 Capital City Auctions this week: 

• Sydney: 763 

• Melbourne: 1,233 

• Brisbane: 141 

• Adelaide: 129 

• Perth: 44 

• Canberra: 101  

The busiest individual suburb for auctions this week is BENTLEIGH East in Melbourne, with 28 auctions to be held. The second busiest suburb is St Kilda (21), followed by Craigieburn, Malvern East and Reservoir, each with 18 auctions. All five suburbs are located in Melbourne.

 Summary of last week’s results

While auction volumes fell slightly last week with 1,565 capital city auctions held, the final auction clearance rate rose slightly, from 67.4 per cent the previous week to 69.7 per cent last week. Sydney was the best performing capital city auction market last week, with both the highest volume of auctions (643) and the strongest clearance rate, at 77.4 per cent, having risen substantially from 69.8 per cent the previous week when auction volumes were lower. Of the 15 individual sub-regions of Sydney, five regions recorded a clearance rate in excess of 80 per cent this week.

In Melbourne, 602 auctions took place and the clearance rate remained steady, at 71.5 per cent over the week. Unlike Sydney, no Melbourne sub-regions recorded a clearance rate above 80 per cent. Across the non-capital city auction markets monitored by CoreLogic, the Hunter region was the strongest performer, with 73.9 per cent of reported auctions successful, up substantially from 44.4 per cent the previous week. Clearance rates improved in each individual regional auction market on a week-on-week basis, with the exclusion of the Gold Coast, where the clearance rate fell from 45.5 per cent the previous week to 40 per cent last week.
