    Sydney auction market crumbles with 57.5 per cent clearance rate

    Sydney’s crumbling auction market reached a new low on Saturday,
    recording the lowest clearance rate in years.

    There were 873 homes scheduled to go under the hammer on Saturday.
    By Saturday evening Domain Group had collected 560 results and put
    the clearance rate at 57.5 per cent – down significantly on last weekend’s 62.6 per cent.

    also from that link

    New laws to clamp down on Melbourne CBD’s skyscrapers

    won’t stop a predicted drop in prices of up to 20 per cent in the next three years,

    get out as soon as possible [otherwise] it will take 10 to 15 years before you get your money back

    small apartments in larger blocks with little natural light would be those hardest hit,


    Domain Group senior economist Andrew Wilson did not predict any significant drop in prices for inner city apartments.

    local buyers typically require decent levels of cash flow and a steady tenant

    offshore buyers were “a whole new ball game” and were more than happy to keep apartments vacant.

          Over 50% clearance is hardly bad. May just be a reflection of jacked up expectations caused by agents.

            It's just a reflection of a market void of foreign chinese buyers

              I've noticed Auckland normally lags a year behind Sydney trends and apartments are normally the most volatile of the lot.
