Real Estate Japan Inc. is pleased to present this brand new series of seminars for resident foreigners in Japan who currently own property and are thinking about selling.

In the run up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, many observers are saying that property prices, especially in Tokyo, have reached a peak. So if you own a home or investment property is now a good time to take profit?

In this seminar, we will  be presenting objective, practical information about the market, selling process, and more, in a clear and transparent way so you can decide for yourself.

We will be discussing the following topics and more:

  • Overview of the Japanese real estate market
  • Taxes and other fees when you sell a property in Japan
  • How to decide when to sell your property
  • How to maximize your asking price when you sell your property (for residential properties, not investment properties)
    • For vacant properties
    • For the property you are currently living in
    • For properties you are leasing out
    • How to know if you should renovate a property before selling it
  • How to maximize your asking price when selling your investment property
