Melbourne’s winter auction action continues to power ahead with a clearance rate of 80 per cent recorded on last weekend’s 766 reported auctions.
The REIV figures from last month’s activity reflect the confidence and activity in the market with 5,000 auctions held in May alone. The clearance rate for these 5,000 auctions was a very robust 79 per cent—significantly higher than the same time last year when the clearance rate was 71 per cent.
It’s also worth noting that in some pockets across the city, particularly in Melbourne’s east, 10 suburbs achieved clearance rates above 95 per cent during May.
Demand from buyers continues to hold strong and the Commonwealth Bank’s home loans general manager noted in a media article this week that the Melbourne market had moved further in favour of sellers.
