NATIONAL - There's been a slight improvement in the national auction clearance rate, according to CoreLogic’s latest report, which comes as national spring auction volumes have increased on the second spring weekend. The combined capital city preliminary clearance rate rose to 70.2 per cent for the week. Auction volumes increased week-on-week with 2,225 properties taken to auction, up from 2,074 last week, and higher than this time last year (2,062).

Domain chief economist Andrew Wilson said the spring selling season was shaping up to be one of the slowest in five years.
