The distraction of Christmas parties, shopping and holidays caught up with the bumper stock of weekend property auctions when the clearance rates dipped into the low 70s.

There was record volumes for this time of year, including some 70 plus auctions held Sunday, in an unusually high attempt to sell before Santa arrives.

There are nine Christmas Eve Saturday auctions scheduled across four states, according to realestate.com.au.

South Australia has the most Christmas Eve auctions with three listings.

It includes a a Goodwood cottage which is expected by the Harcourts listing agent to see investors, renovators and builders compete for the 9 Blackett Street offering, which has been a $395 a week rental.

The 1950s three bedroom cottage last sold at $505,000 in December last year.
