Caution regarding Japanese Real Estate Investment
Please pay close attention to the Japanese real estate investment information on websites that anyone can view at any time.
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 most of those information are NOT attractiveness. Of course, it can not be said that there is no interesting information in those information, in reality, it is very rare.
The more expensive real estate owners, the more likely they are to ask real estate agents to sell as secretly as possible. The main reason is that many of the owners of expensive real estate are business owners and landlords, etc., with high social status, and even if the reason for selling of their real estate is simply the purpose of asset exchange, others Is likely to be perceived as financially painful. if such unwilling information spreads, they have a risk losing their credibility.
As a result, most of the real estate investment information on the website that anyone can view at any time is likely to be unattractive.
It is also 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 who hold investment funds abundantly are always waiting for attractive and quality real estate investment 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.
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 company’s 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 in Japan provide high-quality real estate information to their own prospective investors secretly without listing the information on the web site.
If real properties are not sold to Japanese investors without listing the information on the web site because of the lack of attractiveness, such as not good location, law ROI, and poor maintenance situation, then a lot of Japanese Real Estate Companies and Agents want to sell to overseas investors via the Internet openly by English and Chinese languages. If those unattractive real properties will be sold, they probably think they will be “very lucky.” Also Japanese real estate agent unwillingly lists the information on the web site for normal Japanese companies and investors. Normally, the deal is completed between other investor via other real estate company’s agent. In that case, the agent unwillingly needs to split the brokerage fee.
For these reason, most of the real estate investment information on the website that anyone can view at any time is likely to be unattractive. Of course we could not say that all of the cross-border real estate investments as mentioned above will not be successful, but in many cases there is a high risk that overseas investors face various problems after investment.
