Weekend auction markets saw the combined capitals’ preliminary clearance rate edging above 83 per cent, the best ever rolling success rate recorded by CoreLogic. 

It bettered a brief period in May 2015 and before that in September 2009.

Domain reported the Sydney’s auction market had its biggest result in 24 years, as its preliminary clearance rate reached 88.7 per cent on the weekend.

Every capital city recorded above 70 per cent, CoreLogic noted, after 1287 homes were taken to auction, up on the 884 auctions in the prior week. Over the same week last year, 1167 homes were offered across the capitals, returning a 67 per cent success rate.

It was Canberra that secured the highest weekend clearance rate of 92 per cent.

Sydney followed at 89 per cent, then Adelaide’s 82 per cent, Melbourne on 80 per cent, Perth at 75 per cent and Brisbane on a stronger-than-usual 74 per cent.

The nation’s top auction result was a beach house at Avoca Beach on the NSW Central Coast which fetched $7 million through McGrath.
