114423_10963780A few weeks ago, when I came back to Japan, I participated in a Real estate investment seminar by chance. The speaker invests in New-built property in Okinawa in a quite interesting way. I want to introduce you that which is useful reference for Real estate investment in New Zealand.

First I am going to explain some little about Japanese Real estate.
In 2015, the number of annual new-built home is 800,000 and 200,000 for demolition, therefore the difference 600,000 houses are increasing every year. However the population of Japan has been decreasing. On the other hand, new apartments in Tokyo are sold before the construction. In regards to finance, mainstream is Full-loan with no need of a down payment. And the interest rate is only 1-2% so it would sound like nothing for people who live in New Zealand. Regardless to say, it is a buyers’ market and in fact it becomes cheaper to buy a house than to rent.

Meanwhile, the lecturer bravely carries out construction of new builds and succeeds in no-vacancy property management meeting local needs in Okinawa (it’s like Queenstown in NZ?).
He practices the fundamental principle of Real estate investment, “Location, Location, Location!” with extremely simple and honest.

The basic reasons why he prefers to specialise in New-builds are below;
・It enables to plan popular layouts in popular areas.
・It enables to use the longest loan and special agreements of New-builds.
・There mostly cannot be repair cost.
Occupancy rate is the First, not focusing on only the yield.
・It enables to aim at Capital gain – In Japan it’s impossible for existing homes.

Using those ways he solidly operates the Real estate, and to match society needs as much as possible and also to increase the profitability, he diverts the unit as a Monthly rent unit, and disperses the risk by investing in properties for US army and military base. He always wants evolution.

Here in NZ, recently the awareness of living environment increases and the Real estate investment intensifies. It is essential that owners need to provide better living environment and to improve the long-term consolidation of profits. So I think that we can learn many things from the Japanese Real estate battle.

Born in Japan in 1973. At University I learned Japanese History.

After graduation, I worked at a major Dental material company as a top salesman. In 2002 I firstly set my foot on land in New Zealand, and have started to engage in NZ Construction firm since 2004. From the 8 years' experiences at construction sites and sales experiences in Japan, I devote myself to satisfy customers from consultation to construction and after care services.

Within the first 4 years after the foundation, half of Japan Homes' customers were similar ages of mine. So that their life environment such as a number of children were also similar to mine therefore I was able to understand the customers' situations and wants more. Meanwhile there are also many customers of my father's generation, which is always appreciated because I can learn lots of good things from them.

We try our best to provide services that you satisfy, such as schedule, quality and after care service.

"I can trust you with any projects." "You are the man who I can rely on when I am in trouble." I enjoy working to get these words more times and to create as more smiles as possible.
