The homes have a price range of and $580,000 to $635,000 and $420,000 to $460,000, respectively.
Mr Torpy said demand for property in Warrnambool was extremely high.
"It has been a really strong year across the board for real estate in the south-west," Mr Torpy said.
He said it had been the strongest auction year for Ray White Warrnambool, with 109 auctions and 102 of the properties selling.
"We have a further 16 auctions before the end of 2021," Mr Torpy said.
He said he expected high demand for properties in the region to continue in 2022.
"We certainly anticipate interest in Warrnambool and the region to continue into 2022 and we have seen this as inquiry and prices continue to be positive throughout the final month of the year," Mr Torpy said.
He said people wanted to move to the south-west because of the excellent education facilities, amazing health facilities, plenty of sporting and recreational options and access to beaches.
The Kelp Street home will be auctioned at 12.30pm on Saturday, while the Clifton Street house will go under the hammer at 1.30pm.
