Whole building property investments are the end-goal for most property investors.
With prices starting from 30,000,000 JPY investors are able to own a whole building and the land that it sits on. This provides a number of benefits above what is available to the single-unit investor.
Whole building investments have the following benefits:
– 100% of the land is owned by you, and not split among other owners
– easy management due to the consolidation of unit locations
– you do not require permission to make any changes to the building or individual units
– you can re-build or re-purpose the building at any time
– re-sale values are higher than single-unit investments owing to full ownership
– more units means more diversification and lower vacancy risk
– potentially high returns if the building includes commercial tenants
– buildings can be used as collateral to secure financing for further property investments
