Event description



We live in a disinflationary world and the main worry is that this could extend to deflation – which, of course, means falling prices and much more.

There is monetary policy; but there isn’t much money in the bank anymore to pump prime our way out of the coming funk – and monetary policy is really a tool for an inflationary world.

Ignore the ‘official’ economic growth figures – they are all smoke and mirrors. Unemployment – and especially underemployment – is rising, and as result, wage growth is stuffed. Less take home pay in the future, not more.

And sooner rather than later, we will be facing a property snake.

And just like in the board game – which is really based on luck – some might be able to fluke their way out of hitting a snake on the way up to the top square, but most won’t.

The game just doesn’t work that way.

What we face in coming years – which, when combined in even the slightest configuration, is likely to have a negative impact most on property – includes:

  • Disinflation and most likely deflation

  • Limited improvements in liquidity, even if we start printing money

  • Increasing financial regulation

  • High levels of household and government debt

  • Changing property taxation

  • Little noteworthy government assistance

  • Concentrating and aging population

  • Tightening and policing of foreign ownership rules

  • Baton change economy plus digital/robotic disruption

  • Rising unemployment and high underemployment

  • More part-time than full-time new job positions

  • Little or no wage growth (falling wages in real terms)

  • Poor housing affordability

  • Weakening world economy

  • Potential Chinese economic correction

  • Overbuilding (especially of the wrong product)

  • Government deficits

  • Potential loss of our AAA credit rating

Have a quick go at marking off those on the list that won’t apply in the near future. It is a short list, indeed.

Exactly when we hit the snake is very hard to tell. But with each roll of the dice, the chances increase. We have very little wriggle room left on the board.

For those who were prepared, and knew what to look for, previous property downturns presented great investment opportunities. It doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom. But what you buy and how you work your asset becomes paramount.

Our Master Class workshops outline the challenges ahead in more detail and what property types/housing products will be in increasing demand in the years and decade ahead.

You also get to spend a day with like-minded people who are interested in many of the same things you are. Past workshops have seen attendees form lasting relationships – as friends, networks and even in a few cases, business.

Matusik Master Class is a very hands-on event. Just 10 to 12 people. It’s just me (Michael Matusik, Director of Matusik Property Insights) with a flip-chart/white board, some thick pens and a head full of knowledge.

I have an agenda, there is structure and there is important stuff I want to cover off, but it is open forum. Questions are expected. Answers will be given. No filter applies. You won’t be sold anything.


Michael is considered one of Australia's foremost housing market analysts.

He will cover:

  • Really understanding the housing market

  • Where the housing market is heading

  • Learn how to best measure it and achieve a 'better market match'

  • What you should buy or build

Key things:
