It’s time to look again and see how our auction markets carried out over the previous few months.
There have been 23,184 houses taken to auction throughout Australia’s capital cities over the three months to September 2021.
This is down from 31,605 over the earlier quarter, though rising on the 14,216 auctions held over the September 2020 quarter final yr.

Of the 22,980 capital metropolis auction outcomes collected over the newest quarter, 18.3 per cent reported a withdrawn end result, which was considerably greater than the 7.3 per cent withdrawn over the June quarter.
Looking at weekly auction figures, the week ending twenty ninth August noticed the highest withdrawal charges of the quarter (35.1 per cent), which noticed the clearance charge drop under 60.0 per cent for the first time since late August 2020.
The rise in withdrawals was largely attributed to Melbourne’s lockdown restrictions which at the time prevented in-person property inspections.
By the last week of the quarter (week ending twenty sixth September), withdrawal charges had fallen to 10.2 per cent as restrictions started to ease, pushing the mixed capital metropolis last clearance charge for the week as much as 80.6 per cent, the highest clearance charge recorded since late March this yr.
The upward development in clearance charges over the final 4 weeks of the quarter will doubtless proceed into October, as long as the withdrawal charge continues to ease.
