Market stabilises despite rise in volume: RP Data's national auction market wrap

National auction market stable despite a strong rise in the number of properties taken to auction.

A preliminary auction clearance rate of 65.4% was recorded this week across capital cities compared to 65.0% last week and 67.3% this time last year.

The auction clearance rate has maintained a stable performance despite a 42% rise in the number of properties taken to auction this week and concerns the federal budget may have a negative impact on buyer demand.
