- Agents explore new ways
- We hold our breath
Last week, auction volumes across the combined capital cities reached their second highest level this year with 2,599 homes taken to market. The higher volumes combined with uncertainty around COVID-19 saw the final auction clearance rate fall to the lowest level since June last year returning a 56.9% success rate.
This week and weekend
There are 3065 Capital city properties scheduled to go under the hammer this week. The release of a new policy by the Federal Government relating to open homes and public auctions is already showing signs of dramatically impacting the industry. There is likely to be a number of sellers who will withdraw their property from the market completely or postpone until circumstances improve.
