In Japan, urban areas are suitable for real estate investments because of the large and stable population and high rent levels.
The high rent levels make it possible to reduce the ratio of maintenance and renewal costs, which are necessities for managing the quality of real estate, to the total cost. As a result, stable profitability can be expected.
Japan is an island country with a low country risk.
There were no drastic policy changes in years when political changes occurred among political parties. For long periods, there have been no cases of armed conflict. In terms of the economy, Japan is one of the largest economic powers with the third largest GDP in the world.
In Japan, the property rights of individuals are guaranteed at a high level. The same as Japanese, overseas investors are free from limitations on the holding of real estate.
In Tokyo, Japan, real estate prices have increased for the last 20 years.
The Tokyo Olympic Games will be held in 2020 in Tokyo for the first time in 56 years. In the special wards of Tokyo, city development projects are underway with the aim of completion in 2020. It is expected that the value of assets will increase.
