Auctions going out of fashion in Sydney
The auction clearance rate in Sydney improved this week with 73 per cent of properties put up for auction on Saturday selling on the day. However volumes were down with just 206 residential property auctions held in the city, down from 258 last week and 254 on the same weekend last year.
Melbourne results continue to shine with 77 per cent of 416 properties put up for auction on Saturday selling on the day.

There were just 17 properties put up for auction in Adelaide on the weekend with six reported as sold. Those results were down on the results reported from last week and last year.
