Combined clearance rate holds above 70% despite increased activity across the capitals

The combined capitals saw 1,961 homes taken to auction this week, returning a preliminary auction clearance rate of 70.2%, from the 1,481 results collected. Despite a 13.1% increase in the number of dwellings taken to auction, as compared to last week (1,734), this week’s preliminary clearance rate reduced by only 50 basis points on last week’s result of 70.7%.

This time last year, 1,913 dwellings were auctioned across the capital cities, and a final clearance rate of 54.0% was recorded.
