Real Estate Market in Japan

Continually growing resale market

Record numbers of contracts are being signed on preowned apartments in the Tokyo metropolitan area, focusing more and more attention on the resale market.

The real estate resale market in Japan continues to grow, with the number of contracts signed on preowned apartments in the Tokyo metropolitan area in 2015 up by 24% compared to 2005. Activity in the resale market continues to intensify with every passing year, with apartments in particular proving very popular.

Reliability as assets

With prices for preowned apartments remaining stable, they can be expected to consistently retain their value as assets. Japan also grants ownership rights for both buildings and land.

Prices per m2 for preowned apartments in the Tokyo metropolitan area have remained stable for the last ten years, with prices in 2015 up by approximately 39% compared to 2005. Despite falling temporarily in 2009, following the Lehman Brothers crisis, and in 2011, after the Great East Japan Earthquake, prices started to rise again in 2012. With such stable prices, you can put great confidence in preowned apartments as assets.

Stable market rents and return on investment

Market rents for residential properties and office space in the Tokyo metropolitan area are unlikely to be affected by economic conditions.

Rents for residential properties in Japan are stable compared to real estate prices, and tend to be resilient to factors such as economic conditions. In fact, market rents per m2 for apartments in the Tokyo metropolitan area have consistently remained within the ¥2,500 to ¥3,000 range over the last ten years. Market rents per m2 of office space in the Tokyo metropolitan area have also remained stable over the last ten years, hovering between ¥3,000 and ¥4,000.
