McGrath Estate Agents reported an overall clearance rate of 82% from 122 auctions that were conducted across its network that comprises NSW, Queensland, ACT and Victoria on February 11.

The company conducted 85 auctions across metro Sydney, achieving an 87% clearance rate.

Its chief auctioneer Scott Kennedy-Green advised McGrath’s company owned offices in the Eastern Suburbs, Inner West and Northern Beaches all achieved a 100% clearance rate.

“We saw increased activity with multiple registrations and strong results through most price brackets.

" In particular, the $750,000 to $1.5 million bracket saw a 94% clearance rate from 48 auctions, and all three properties above $3 million sold.”

A standout in the prestige sector was the sale of a three bedroom apartment with harbour views at 2202/2 Dind Street, Milsons Point by Nigel Mukhi at McGrath Neutral Bay for $3,775,000. 

Mukhi said he had eight registered bidders for the 152 square metre apartment. 

“This was in a very popular price point for downsizers and there hasn’t been anything around that price range for quite some time in the area.”
