Real Estate Japan is pleased to present the next installment in our popular series of free webinars on how to sell residential property in Japan.

As Japan and the rest of the world continue to be impacted by COVID-19, what should owners of residential real estate, including residential investment properties, know about the market and should you consider selling your property in this environment?

We’re faced with a lot of uncertainty as the worldwide pandemic is still unfolding, but objectively, interest rates in Japan remain at historic lows and demand for more spacious homes is increasing as people pivot to working-from-home. At the same time, supply of new condominiums remains tight, while sales of pre-owned apartments and single-family homes are surging. If you have been thinking about selling your property, is now a good time to sell?

In this webinar, we will be presenting objective, practical information about the market, selling process, and more.

This will be a co-presentation by GPlusMedia, the company which runs Real Estate Japan and PLAZA HOMES.

We will be covering the following topics:

  • Presented by PLAZA HOMES
    • When is the best time to sell real estate?
    • The key to selling as high and fast as possible
    • Advertise your property attractively
    • Contracting and closing process
    • Tax in relation to selling a property
    • Introduction to PLAZA HOMES
  • Presented by GPlusMedia
    • The Japanese real estate market
    • How to set the asking price
      • Comparison method
      • Capitalization method
      • Depreciation method
    • Steps to selling property in Japan
    • 3 different types of real estate agent agreements
    • Taxes and other fees when you sell property in Japan
