Auction Volumes Fall Across the Combined Capital Cities Leading into Spring

From CoreLogic.

The combined capital city preliminary clearance rate increased to 70.0 per cent this week, up from 68.3 per cent last week, while auction volumes fell week-on-week. There were 2,060 properties taken to auction this week, down from 2,270 last week, although higher than this time last year, when 1,899 auctions were held and a clearance rate of 77.1 per cent was recorded.

The final clearance rate across the combined capital cities has been sitting in the mid-high 60 per cent range since June and it is likely that this will be the case again on Thursday when our final results are published. All but two of the capital cities saw the clearance rate increase week-on-week.
