Market Matcher

Out of the thousands of suburbs Australia-wide, how do you find the top ones for investment? Where do you even start that kind of research?

You can find that one-in-a-thousand property market, and you can find it in seconds using the Market Matcher.

What is the market matcher?

The Market Matcher is a property market search engine. It finds property markets that match your criteria: budget, yield, location, property type, supply and demand, prior growth, etc.

Let's say you're looking to invest but you don't know exactly where. You have some strict criteria though:

You want to buy within 20 km of the Brisbane CBD. So set the search radius in the Market Matcher?

You want to buy a house. So set the property type in the Market Matcher?

Property Type Criteria

You want the house to have a yield above 5%, you can only afford at most $500,000 and you want a vacancy rate less than 2%. So set this criteria in the Market Matcher?

Stats Criteria

You want to know a few other statistics about each suburb and you want the list ordered by Demand to Supply Ratio (DSR). So you set the display and sorting criteria in the Market Matcher?

Now you search?

The DSR database searches for matching markets and voila?

Where are these places? Click on a post code or suburb and you'll see where it is on a map?

Where is the place

Change your criteria to refine your search until you have some property markets worthy of further research. From here your next step should probably be to check out the council website for development applications and other planned projects.

The Market Matcher acts as a fast filter to get rid of all the inappropriate markets so you can target your research in areas at least in the ballpark.

How do I access the market matcher?

The Market Matcher is available to all users who have at least a free account. All you need to provide when registering for your free account is an email address that we can send your password to.

Note however, that DSR+ and SSI stats are only for "Millionaires". The default account after registering is the "Cheapskate". A Cheapskate can search by and display all the statistics in the DSR group, but not in the DSR+ or SSI groups.

It's easy to upgrade from Cheapskate to Millionare, but it costs a fortune (see pricing). So have a play with the free account until you can afford it.

If you include a DSR+ or SSI stat in your criteria the Market Matcher will either limit the response or return an error. You can get a complete list of all stats and which group they belong to here.
