Activity in the resale market continues to intensify with every passing year, with apartments in particular proving very popular.

Reliability as assets

With price 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 to foreigners.

Despite falling temporarily in 2008, following the Lehman Brothers crisis, and in 2011, after the Great East Japan Earthquake, price started to rise again in 2012. With such stable price, you can put great confidence in preowned apartments as assets.
