Australia’s capital cities will see a combined total of 2,050 auctions this week according to figures from CoreLogic RP Data.

It’s a similar total to last week where 2,076 auctions where held across the nation’s capitals, but vendors will be hoping for a stronger performance after last week’s final clearance rate came in at 75.9%, the

softest result across the combined capital cities since March this year.

Melbourne is set to lead the way in terms of auction volumes with 959 scheduled for the week.

That figure is up on the 947 held last week and the 946 held during the same week last year.

The Victorian capital will hope it’s clearance rate also increase after last week’s rate of 77.7% was the lowest recorded in the city in nine weeks.

Brisbane is expecting 114 auctions this week, down from last week’s total of 135, and will be hoping to improve on the 45.5% clearance rate it returned last week.

There are currently 76 Adelaide homes scheduled for auction this week, slightly lower than the 87 last week and tracking at a similar level as the same time last year when 74 auctions were held.

Adelaide’s clearance rate last week was 58.7%, having fallen from 71.2% the previous week.
