A preliminary auction clearance rate* of 65.4 per cent was recorded this week across capital cities compared to 65.0 per cent last week and 67.3 per cent this time last year.
The auction clearance rate has maintained a stable performance despite a 42 per cent rise in the number of properties taken to auction this week and concerns the federal budget may have a negative impact on buyer demand.
Auction numbers rose steeply this week and it is significant that the clearance rate didn’t drop below the lows of the last fortnight.
Adelaide recorded a clearance rate of 65.5 per cent compared to 62.3 per cent last week. In Canberra a clearance rate of 52.6 per cent was recorded and in Perth there were 8 auction sales from 17 results. In Tasmania there was 2 sales from 5 results.
