CoreLogic auction expert Kevin Brogan said Brisbane was experiencing a “fairly steady” auction market. “This week’s volume is down on last week but … 141 is a reasonable activity,” he said. “And looking back over 2016, the clearance rate achieved in Brisbane last week was as strong as we’ve seen for a year.“The higher clearance rate may signal for people to come into the auction market.”One of the 141 properties going under the hammer this weekend is a Brighton property with two houses on it.
