Strong Auction Results As Sydney’s Streak Ends

The auction streak ends.

Sydney fails to reach the 80% clearance rate for the first time in two months, according to Australia Property Monitors. Not a cause for concern though, as Sydney finished just a hairline under 80% at 79.9% of 630 properties for last weekend’s auction.

Auction results still reached a staggering high of 81.1% clearance rate overall, ahead of the 64% clearance rate recorded around the same time last year. Melbourne finished at 72.4%, with Victoria barely hitting the 70% mark. The overall clearance rate for capital cities finished at 71.6% and this is set to continue, as 1300 homes will be sold under the hammer next week in Melbourne alone, showing clear signs that demand for property is not waning.
