The Victorian capital will also be hoping to break a clearance rate slump, with last week’s result of 75.7% marking the third straight week of falling rates in the city.

The most auctions in an individual suburb this week is 12, with three Melbourne suburbs; Bentleigh East, Glen Waverley and Mount Waverley and Sydney’s Ashfield all sharing that honour.

Volumes in Adelaide have stayed pat this week, with the city of churches again expecting 80 homes up for auction this week.

Perth has also seen little change this week, with 20 auctions expected this week compared to 21 a week ago, while Canberra is expecting a week-on-week drop from 49 to 43.
