The RP Data National Auction Preview reveals that there are 1,425 auctions scheduled across Australia for the week ending 8 June, 2014 with 1,073 expected in capital cities.

Volumes remain higher than this time last year at 38%; however, these are lower than last week due to the long weekend in most parts of Australia.

After the record number of auctions in the first five months of the year, Sydney continues as the strongest auction market.
