The average of $56,102 was up 29.7% (last year $43,259) but the clearance rate fell to 68.3% (last year 76%). Magic Millions managing director Vin Cox summed up: "It was a very selective market today. Buyers were prepared to pay for the right product. The disappointing aspect to the sale was that some vendors haven't come to terms with the reality of the market."
