Sydney had 789 properties listed for auction on Saturday 3rd June and a 74% auction clearance rate showing there is still momentum in the Sydney property market, even in winter.

This week I take a close look at one bedroom apartments and how they fared at the weekend’s auctions. There were 25 one bedroom apartments up for sale and 18 of them sold either prior to auction or at auction and the remaining 7 failed to sell. Interestingly this is a 72% clearance rate, which is lower than the overall auction clearance rate of 74%.

The highest priced 1 bedroom apartment was C702/24-26 Point St, Pyrmont which sold for $952,000 and the lowest priced 1 bedroom apartment was 3/51-63 Euston Rd, Alexandria, which sold for $460,000. The median price for a 1 bedroom apartment based on this week’s sales was $747,600.

One bedroom apartments are currently returning an average rental yield of between 3% – 4% depending on where they are located and the condition of the apartment. Here is a selection of what sold and what didn’t sell from this past week’s auctions.
