Auction Clearance Rates Continue To Track Below 70%

From CoreLogic.

This week, there were 2,894 auctions held across the combined capital cities returning a preliminary auction clearance rate of 66.5 per cent, increasing on last week when the final auction clearance rate fell to its lowest reading since early 2016, when 61.5 per cent of the 2,045 auctions cleared. Clearance rates have continued to track below 70 per cent since June the year; this is a considerably softer trend than what was seen over the same period last year when clearance rates were tracking around the mid 70 per cent range for most of the second half 2016.  Results across each of the individual markets were varied this week, with Canberra recording the highest preliminary auction clearance rate of 72.9 per cent, while in Brisbane only 45.7 per cent of auctions cleared.
