Residential vs Commercial properties

At Japan Property Investments we focus on the purchase of Residential properties rather than commercial property.

Residential property is a common investment type for many real estate investors. This often involves investors purchasing a property and recouping their investment via rental income (and potentially through increasing equity, if the housing market rises.)

Commercial property, on the other hand, tends to be either retail premises, offices, or industrial facilities (warehousing, factories and so on). Larger commercial properties are often owned by a collective of investors, rather than a sole trader, as the initial capital needed can be very high.

It is a simple strategy based on our expertise.

We understand the residential markets and have professionals that advise us in this area. With commercial property our experience is limited and we do not understand all the regulations around purchasing this type of real estate.

This is why we prefer to stay with residential property
