Auction Snapshot: Saturday 9 September

September 11th 2017

What’s happening in the market…

“Dozens of auctions in Melbourne at the weekend saw a drop-off in bidder participation rates but the percentage of properties that sold under the hammer stayed high,” The Domain Group stated.

Domain also highlighted that the outer east suburbs of Melbourne achieved the highest clearance rate, whereas the south-east had a weaker result than usual.

Once again, the Reserve Bank of Australia has decided to leave the cash rate at 1.5%, unchanged since August 2016.

Saturday 9 September
Number of auctions in Victoria: over 900
Clearance rate: 73.1%

The same weekend last year
Clearance rate: 78.4%
