Despite COVID-19, the Sydney property is strongly forging ahead with auction clearance rates tracking at levels similar to those of 12 months ago, according to RiskWise Property Research.
Houses achieved a 71.1 per cent preliminary clearance rate and, overall, of the total volume of 625 properties, a 69.5 per cent clearance rate.
The volume of auctions was 18 per cent higher than a year earlier according to CoreLogic, and the final auction clearance rate is expected to finish at around 64 per cent, marginally above the decade average.
When you have a larger volume and higher clearance rates, this means that we have a stronger market
RiskWise CEO Doron Peleg said this was another consistent result, and similar to those seen in recent weeks.
"When you have a larger volume and higher clearance rates, this means that we have a stronger market," Mr Peleg said.
"Houses, in particular, are showing strong results while units achieved only 66.3 per cent clearance rate which shows that, as expected, they have less resilience."
