Ray White Auction

A warm winter market

Despite one of the wettest Sydney Saturdays on record the clearance rate has risen once again. Reported at 77 per cent this week should come as no great surprise given the strength seen in to date. Carolyn Boyd of domain.com.au wrote “There’s two main factors: record low interest rates and low listing levels. We are now moving towards the second half of the year [and] … there’s no indication that stock levels are going to rise and there’s no indication that interest rates are going to rise. Whilst those two remain low we suspect that auction clearance rates, certainly for the remainder of this year, will remain high.” Process is everything at the moment, skill is overrated. Make the calls.
