WISE GUY: Auction Clearance Rates – What They Really Show

Weekly auction clearance rates do not paint a particularly clear picture. They have quite a small sample size and show a lot of week-to-week volatility.

Australian Capital City Auction Clearance Rates (for week ending 28 Sep 08)

Auction clearance rates in the last week have remained uninspiring (the Melbourne figures in particular, but in no means exclusively, should be looked at in the context of annual figures etc).
