What happened to the Markets in June?

By Jessica Ridder

Market Review

In terms of the overall property market, the latest auction clearance rates from RP Data showed a 4% increase in the Sydney clearance rate to 54%, while Melbourne dropped slightly to 53%. The declines were greater in Brisbane and Adelaide, with clearance rates of 22% and 35% respectively. Volumes in other capital cities were too low to yield meaningful volumes. Ray White Blackheath appears to be bucking against the trend having recorded an 83% auction clearance rate for the last 3 months (Source: APM – 7/6/11).

Traditionally when the markets get tough and buyer activity drops the stronger agents with good infrastructure and processes in place will rise to the top and continue to sell well, while other agents are struggling to record sales.
