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.

Building or buying a house in the Philippines

Share |

Here is a foreigner/expatriate who has built a house in the Philippines. I might note several considerations:
1. The opportunity to build with local labour to lower your costs; as long as you tightly structure contracts and manage performance to ensure your expectations are closely realised
2. The opportunity to buy foreclosed properties - remembering that not all banks offer good value, and to check to ensure you are paying a reasonable price
3. Take the opportunity not just to find out the prices of property from websites like Sulit.com.ph, but to also talk to landowners around your areas of interest. Why? At face value property in the Philippines looks like a rather illiquid market. Well, you'd be surprised how many sellers are out there, but its harder to connect with them.
4. Foreigners are like gold mines to Filipinos; a dollar sign flashes before their eyes when they see one. Its engrained in them from the age of 5yo. Its all a big joke; but at the end of the day, its their 'inter-dependence' culture that pulls everyone down. The difference between you and some other rich Chinese Filipino is that they will probably be assured that you have money, and that you are less likely to be committed to someone.
