In yet another weekend of unprecedented results, Saturday (March 13) saw three capital cities record auction clearance rates above 90%.

Sydney (90.6%), Adelaide (90.9%) and Canberra (93.4%) led the national results.

It is the second time in three weekends that the Sydney market sat above 90%, reporting 716 auctions, a rise on the 655 of the weekend prior and the 644 12 months earlier.

Sydney’s results saw rates of 90.4% for houses and 90.3% for units — with a median house price from the weekend’s results of $1,550,000.

Melbourne, meanwhile, returned from a holiday weekend with a surge in listings. 978 homes were reported for auction, well above last weekend’s 405, though still below the 1090 offered on the same weekend last year.

Melbourne returned a clearance rate of 81.5%, up on last weekend’s 80.6%. The Victorian Capital recorded a median house price of $1,100,000 for weekend sales — up on the previous weekend’s $948,000.
