Market cools to more realistic levels:
While auction clearance rates have dropped dramatically in some areas of Sydney’s real estate market, our area continues to perform ahead of others.
Sydney auction clearance rates in late September dropped to the low 70s, a far cry from May’s peak of almost 90 per cent. It also is about 10 points lower than the same time last year.
Senior economist for the Domain Group Dr Andrew Wilson says another factor influencing sales is the extraordinary number of spring listings – well up on the same time last year – giving buyers more choice. While we have noted a definite cooling of the frenzied activity of several months ago, properties are still selling well.
A one bedroom apartment with parking in 6 Macleay Street recently sold before auction for $850,000 while a small unrenovated company title one bedroom apartment at 19A Tusculum Street recently sold for a building record of $489,000.
Other strong sales include an Art Deco three bedroom one bathroom apartment with garage at 62-66 Roslyn Gardens which sold for $1,315,000.
