Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life. Check out the "feedback" in our blog for stories of success by customers of our previous reports.

Buying property in the Philippines

Share |

According to a survey by Global Property Guide the Philippines ranks in 3rd place with the best yields on property - with Jakarta and Lima (Peru) in 1st and 2nd places. The average yield for a property in Manila is 10.99%. I much prefer the Philippines for lifestyle reasons and because of a number of other reasons:
1. Greater regulation means restrictions on where you build - so prospect of restricted property development looking forward
2. Strong population growth - this country is growing at 2% per annum, that's almost 2mil people a year
3. Job creation - The Philippines is the preferred business outsourcing base because Filipinos are the best diplomats. Laxed work ethic aside, they have potential for more of this 'structural' shifting of jobs from the west.
4. Remittance - A great deal of money is flowing from expats abroad to the home country, as well as BFs sending GFs money.
5. Reform - The Philippines government on balance is getting its act together. Infrastructure is being built. The country could do with some ports reform, but is otherwise on a positive path. I note that they are increasingly building infrastructure for tourism around the country.
6. China proximity - The Philippines is close to some of the biggest and fastest growing countries in the world, so some of the benefits can be expected to rub off in terms of trade and tourism. There is a new airport flight from Lauag (Ilocos Norte) to China, and expect more of these links to draw tourists. Not just China, but Korea and Japan.
7. Tourist friendly - The Philippines is without a doubt the most tourist friendly country in the world. They are very diplomatic and engaging. Great sense of life, very personable. Gradually you can expect them to get their service culture in place, and a worth ethic. Better still - you can stay in the country on a tourist visa for 18 months without even leaving. Try doing that in Indonesia.

My advice is to check out some of the rural cities - as opposed to focusing on the Manila. My picks are Naga City, Vigan City, Lucena City and Davao City. If you need more info on buying property in the Philippines, I have written a 2 volume eBook "Buying Phililppines Property" on the topic. See my bookstore for more information. Currently updating the late 2008 edition - so I'm forwarding the 2010 edition to those who purchase the 2008 edition.
