What’s happening in the market…

The Domain Group highlighted that, “the incidence of good-quality properties tearing away at auction to a final sale price 20 per cent or more above reserve is still evident in the city’s most coveted streets and suburbs. But it’s becoming less of a feature of the market.”

Domain also highlighted that if a suburb has a cinema complex, it’s a sign the suburb has ‘made it’, with multiple new cinema complexes due to be built throughout Melbourne in the near future.

We will experience a lull in auctions this weekend, with many sellers choosing to avoid the days prior to the Melbourne Cup. Auctions are expected to then ramp up once again as we head into the last few weekends of Spring.
