Upcoming auctions

There are 1,115 capital city auctions being tracked by CoreLogic this week, down from 1,485 auctions last week, but higher than this time last year when 953 homes were taken to auction. The lower volumes are likely influenced by school holidays. 

In Melbourne, 417 auctions are scheduled across the city this week, down from 645 auctions last week, although higher than volumes from the same week last year (388). 

There are 538 Sydney homes scheduled for auction this week, down from 644 last week according to final figures, and higher than the 359 held one year ago. 

Across the smaller markets, scheduled volumes are set to fall week on week across Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth and Tasmania, while a higher volume of auctions are scheduled in Canberra this week.

Summary of last week’s results

There were 1,485 capital city homes scheduled for auction last week, returning a final auction clearance rate of 60.6 per cent, the highest clearance rate seen since 31st May. In comparison, the previous week saw 1,251 homes taken to auction returning a 59.6 per cent success rate. This time last year, 1,295 auctions were held across the combined capitals, and a clearance rate of 62.9 per cent was recorded.

In Melbourne, a final auction clearance rate of 61.0 per cent was recorded across 645 auctions last week, up from 60.1 per cent across 558 auctions the previous week. One year ago, a lower 535 Melbourne homes went to auction recording a clearance rate of 68.6 per cent.
