2020 was a tumultuous year for Melbourne real estate agents and with a snap five-day lockdown which ran from midnight February 12 until midnight Wednesday February 17, 2021 didn’t begin much better.

Melbourne’s first ‘Super Saturday’ of 2021 will now get underway weekend with the lockdown and restrictions to end on Wednesday night.

It comes with the city due to hold an incredible 1004 auctions this week ending Sunday, February 21. A significant jump from last week’s sales which saw 299 homes sold with a clearance rate of 91 per cent – this, despite the stage four lockdown measures.

This weekend, on-site inspections and auctions will be allowed to resume – as long as social distancing is adhered to and there is a one person per 2sqm if electronic record keeping is in use. Without electronic record keeping, a limit of one person per 4sqm applies.
