National auction market preview | CoreLogic RP Data | Robert LaroccaThere are 3,977 auctions scheduled across Australia this week. In capital cities there are 3,351 auctions expected, compared to 3,472 for the same period last year.

So far this month the auction clearance rate for capital cities has dropped from 68.2 per cent in October to 66.5 per cent and this is largely due to the Melbourne market.

Unlike the horse racing or AFL the state election this Saturday has had no impact on volumes. There are 1,426 auctions scheduled in Melbourne this week, compared to 1,433 last week and 1,598 this time last year. With one weekend remaining this month the November clearance rate is 67.5 per cent, down from 70.5 per cent in October.

In Sydney, CoreLogic RP Data is expecting 1,374 auctions compared to 1,337 last week and 1,402 for this week last year. In line with the national trend the clearance rate has also softened in Sydney. The reduction is minor, from 73.8 to 72.1 per cent.

In Brisbane 254 auctions are expected after 219 were held last week.

Adelaide is expecting 154 auctions, compared to 147 last week.
