This weeks result compares well to the 2014 market when an overall clearance rate of 67.8 per cent was recorded. It also broadly reflects the moderate growth recorded in home values this year.

The positive impact of the rate cut will take a few weeks to be apparent on a national wide scale as volumes are still low. If the rate cut is to encourage a few more active buyers and sellers it will also take a few weeks to be obvious.

Sydney

In Sydney a preliminary clearance rate of 80.5 per cent recorded compared to 77.9 per cent last week and 79.5 per cent last year.

Compared to last year this is near identical start.

Melbourne

In Melbourne a preliminary clearance rate of 61.4 per cent was recorded compared to 66.3 per cent last week and 67.5 per cent this time last year.

It is still early but results so far make it interesting to see which way the market goes as the year has started with lower auction volumes and clearance rates.
