Before lamenting "I can't decide on a vacant room"

​ (for property owners)

"There are no vacant rooms and there are many vacant rooms."

If you are a rental property owner, I think it's a nightmare you've had at least once.

Why can't anyone move in? The facilities are too stale and the location is surprisingly bad. There are various problems for each property.

There is no choice but to repair it because it is too stale, but it is rare for a property that "really doesn't look at anyone" in terms of location (repair will be described later).

There is no choice but to make it a vacant lot. There is a decision, but it is so difficult that even that is impossible with condominiums.

On the other hand, do the owners (lenders) themselves know the conditions for recruiting properties they own? It's not just rent, management fees, security deposits, and key money.

As "it is standard in our company (management company)", we do not inform the lender properly, collect tens of thousands of yen for the option price that we do not understand well, and the management company puts it in the pocket, or we make it a recruitment condition that makes it NG for 40s or more without permission. A management company that gathers only seemingly excellent tenants and makes it easier.

It's okay if you accept these things at your own will and think that you can't give up the restrictions even if the room becomes vacant, but you put too many restrictions on the properties you own. Seen from the side, this only seems to be stuck.

From "I don't want to pay for such a stupid option!", "I can't because I'm a little over the age ..." How about mourning the vacancies without hearing the inner voice of the borrower? think.

You are free to ignore your inner voice, but even if there is a serious "population decline, income decline, and poverty in the young and youth (workable)" that is so serious that there are no days when you do not see the news, "Uchi Do you really have the confidence that "the property will always be selected"?

(The same can be said for properties with rent of 30,000 yen to 1 million yen.)

If you add it further, the grounds for saying that "living protection recipients are NG". If you ask, you may hear opinions such as drinking alcohol from noon and watching TV at a loud volume. However, I don't think there are any people who push the same opinion through the recent life counseling meetings and even the welfare office.

I'm not saying it's 100% neat, and I once thought, "This person is more of a hospital than an apartment" during the preview. However, the overwhelming majority (at least over 90%) are people who do not know that they are receiving welfare benefits unless they ask.

* If you give us a voice, we will guide you to the "support site" inspection.

​ Oversupply of single-person condominiums is immediate, but if family-friendly property owners are having trouble with vacant rooms, there seems to be plenty of room for consideration. ..

"Then, lend it at a low rent and accept the negative balance!" This is a clear misunderstanding.

Certainly it would be a minus if you did the same in a new condominium.

​ However, what if the building has been built for many years, the repayment has been completed, and the tax and repair expenses have been accumulated. Certainly not a great yield. But which balance is better than the fact that the room is vacant = no rent is included?

Even if we say "cheap rent", we do not assume the amount of pocket money at all.

The lender is at a loss and the borrower is not happy if he / she does not have to prepare the expenses for the sudden repairs in consideration of the inevitable taxes, insurance and loan repayment when owning the property. It's easy to imagine a situation that forces freedom and is of no benefit to anyone. I am aware that it is my responsibility not to cause this trouble.

Of course, we also keep in mind that the lender's living expenses are contributed from it.

​ I also hear that "weak housing people, including welfare recipients, have many housing complaints." But is that the data that appears in the statistics? The number of cases that we have taken legal action to move out is about fifty-fifty with a rent of about 70,000 yen.

(It is also characteristic that residents of high-rental properties repeatedly make remarks about customer harassment that are unbearable to hear.)

Certainly, if you are not enthusiastic, I feel that you tend to make complaints with words that are unbearable to hear, but I will take care of that point entirely.

​ (The complaints of low-rent occupants are often strong because they want to blame themselves, or they are just a slogan, so continuing to preach the truth is the best solution as a result. It will be a measure)

​ The contracted person will face you, so if you say something different from what you said at the time of the contract, you will understand immediately.


​ * I know that there are many cases where you have to take out repairs temporarily or take out a loan. However, will it be repaired to widen the frontage of the resident and take rent, or will the tax be paid endlessly? If the repair is huge, there are various issues to be considered, but it is often solved by examining the "method", for example.

In addition, even when repairing, it may not be possible to find a feature and cost-effectiveness just by getting on the "recommended by the management company or interior shop" every time.

Experience shows that the occupants will be decided earlier if the concept is "nine people don't look at you, but they won't let go of one person" rather than "somehow appealing to everyone".


* As for the management cost, it is natural that the management items will change for each property, so we will not set a uniform set amount.

(If there are no two properties that are the same, it is impossible to specify them uniformly.)

Of course, if you manage the building yourself, you will not be charged a monthly management fee.

(Some work may incur additional costs)

When we arrange repairs, witness, and pay rent from patrol management , we will charge a management fee according to the difficulty of the management content.

(The calculation method also changes for each property)

There is no equivalent to "list" and "menu", so we will decide by consultation each time .
