    It is up to you whether you will sell your property. Use the valuation result only as a reference.

Brokerage agreement

  • What should I do if I’ve decided to ask your company to sell my property?
    We can begin activities to sell your property when you sign a brokerage agreement.
  • I’ve heard that there are different types of brokerage agreements to conclude when requesting a sale. How are they different? How long is the term of each contract?
    1. Exclusive Brokerage Agreement
    You can only appoint Sumitomo Real Estate Sales as a broker for the sale of the subject property, even if you have found a buyer by yourself. Under this agreement, we are obliged to register the subject property for sale on REINS (Real Estate Information Network System) within five business days upon receiving the agreement and report the sales actives to you in writing at least once a week.

    2. Semi-Exclusive Brokerage Agreement
    You can only appoint Sumitomo Real Estate Sales as a broker for the sale of the subject property, but you are free to find a buyer by yourself and make an agreement with the buyer directly.
    Under this agreement, we are obliged to register the subject property for sale in REINS (Real Estate Information Network System) within seven business days upon receiving the agreement and report the sales actives to you at least once a week.

    3. General Brokerage Agreement
    You can appoint any company other than Sumitomo Real Estate Sales to act as a broker for the sale of the subject property. You can also find a buyer by yourself and directly make agreements together.

    * Three months is the maximum period of all the agreements in 1 through 3 above, under the Real Estate Brokerage Act. The agreement can be renewed upon consultation.
  • I don’t live in Japan. Can I ask your company to sell my property (enter into the brokerage agreement)?
    Yes, you can. We may need to confirm your identification by post or phone to carry out the necessary procedures.
  • I have already entered into a brokerage agreement with you. Can I terminate the agreement if I want to stop selling my property? Do I still need to pay the brokerage fee?
    Yes, you can terminate the agreement if you have decided not to sell your property. You only have to pay the brokerage fee if the sale has been finalized, and you don’t have to pay it only with the conclusion of the brokerage agreement.

Sales activities

  • If I have actually requested a sale, what sales and advertising activities will you conduct?
    We have more than 205 directly managed offices nationwide and will immediately share the property information through our intranet system.
    We will also release all of the information in flyers, newspaper inserts, housing magazines and our own website, as well as other internet media, including the nationwide Real Estate Information Network Systems (REINS), which is accessible to all licensed brokers.
    Open houses are also held regularly, if necessary, to promote the early sale.
  • What fees and expenses should I pay to sell my property?
    "At the time of signing the sales agreement
    Fees and expenses
    Typical fees and expenses are as follows.
    1. Brokerage fee ( including the consumption tax )
    (Half payable on signing, half payable on settlement)
    2. Cost for removing mortgage, if any on the property
    If a mortgage for the housing loan is placed on the property, we will cancel its registration.
    Because other fees may be required depending on the property, ask your agent for more details.
  • What should I prepare when I sell my property?
    Property documents
    ・Registration certificate or information for registration identification (Title deed)

    If you are still paying your mortgage

  • How do you measure the room size?
    "In Japan, we generally describe detached houses and apartments using abbreviations, such as 1 LDK and 2LDK.
    This means the property has one or two bedrooms with a living room, dining room and kitchen in one unit. Bathrooms are generally separate from the toilet in recent buildings. Usually, there is no attached bathroom with toilet in the master bedroom, and the whole unit mostly has one bathroom and one toilet.
    We generally use two measuring systems to describe the room size in Japan: square meters (metric system) and tsubo (conventional measuring standard of size based on the size of tatami mat).
