Japan Investment 2H 2015

September 22, 2015

Transaction volumes for real estate in Japan have increased substantially compared to the market nadir in 2012. Recent figures by Real Capital Analytics (RCA) suggest that approximately JPY2.7 trillion worth of properties were transacted from reported deals in Japan during 1H/2015. Approximately 80% of the total transactions were concentrated in Tokyo, while transactions in other regions also rose as investors sought higher yields. Over the past few years, Japan’s transaction volumes in the second quarter have tended to be lower than in the first. The uncertainty of the global economy, however, geopolitics and the scarcity of opportunities in the current market significantly pulled the Q2/2015 figure down to JPY695 billion, the lowest level since late 2012.
