The final week of January saw Melbourne buyers active across Melbourne in what has been a robust market so far this year.
The Melbourne auction market recorded an 83 percent clearance rate (based on REIV data), a slight increase on the 82 percent for the previous week. At the same time last year, the clearance rate was 69 percent.
This result is based on 276 auctions reported across Melbourne. 178 homes were sold at auction, 51 sold before auction with 47 homes passed in. 7 homes were withdrawn from sale. The median sale price for houses currently sits at $917,000 while the figure for apartments is $694,000.
The buyer confidence reflected by recent clearance rates follows an announcement by the REIV on 18th January that the median house price in Victoria has risen above $900,000 for the first time ever.
