Market still upbeat:


Buyers are still out in force with the bumper weekend of October 18 and 19 recording an impressive 81.1% auction clearance rate. More than 700 Sydney properties went under the hammer over the October 18 weekend with the clearance rate edging higher than the previous weekend where it was 79.3%. News that the NSW economy is now the strongest amongst the Australia states is certainly welcome. A recent Sydney Morning Herald report said NSW had taken over as leader from minerals-rich Western Australia which had held the number one spot for the past three years. A quarterly review by, CommSec found the key factor in NSW’s economic resurgence was a big jump in the number of new housing commencements.
