Caution regarding Japanese real estate investment
Almost all Japanese professional real estate investors express little or no interest in real estate investment information on websites that anyone can view at any time. Because they know that the majority of those informations are NOT attractiveness.
It is caused by the Japanese traditional real estate business practice. Many of the high quality real estate investment information is secretly informed to prospective investors. Japanese real estate agents have many individual investors, corporate executives and institutional investors who are prospective customers. Those investors are always waiting for quality real estate information. In addition, these investors often sell real estate held by them for reasons such as replacing assets, so agents can obtain high-quality sales information as soon as possible. If the transaction is established by introducing the information directly to another potential prospective investor, the agent can obtain a high brokerage fee from both the seller and the buyer. According to the Japanese real estate law, the maximum amount of the fee is about 6% of the real estate selling price.
if the above deal is not successful because the real estate information is not attractiveness for the investors, Japanese real estate agent unwillingly lists the information on the web site. Normally, the deal is completed between other investor via other real estate agent. In that case, the agent needs to split the brokerage fee.
Even today in Japan’s real estate transactions, getting brokerage fees from both the seller and the buyer is not against the law. Many Japanese real estate agents prioritize transaction that can get a fee of 6%. For the real estate company where the agent is working for, dividing brokerage fee with other agents will lead to a decrease in sales. Also, for agents, the more brokerage fee, the more commission they can get by the company.
That is why many real estate agents provide high-quality real estate information to their own prospective investors secretly without listing the information on the web site.
We are worried that a lot of Japanese Real Estate Companies and Agents think the following,
If real properties are not sold to Japanese investors because of the lack of attractiveness, such as not good location, law ROI, and poor maintenance situation, then they should sell to overseas investors via the Internet openly by English and Chinese. If those unattractive real properties will be sold, they feel “very lucky”.
Although we could not say that all of the cross-border real estate investments mentioned above will not be successful, in many cases there is a high risk that overseas investors face various problems after investment.
Please pay close attention to the real estate investment information on websites that anyone can view at any time.
