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.

Philippines Property Market Outlook

I am forecasting falling prices in the Philippines property market, and I suspect vacancy rates will increase. There are several reasons for this:
Filipino expats abroad are mostly in the USA, and lesser proportions in the Middle East and Asia. I think they are likely to be feeling a little less rich with falling housing prices, so less inclined to send money home. I think it’s the financially illiterate who will fair worse, and that includes a lot of Filipino domestic workers whom I think will have either:
1. Bought late in the USA – with a ARM loan due to reset with 30% higher mortgage repayments
2. Bought a lot of condos in the Philippines as a retirement income
3. Higher vacancy rates – actually vacancy rates are already high since a lot of Filipinos are sitting on property without letting it. I think financial pressures will either lead them to sell or rent.
4. The peso has fallen against the USD – so they might be waiting for further falls – decreasing remittances. I think it will fall as oil prices rise further
5. High oil prices will undermine economic activity in the Philippines as consumer spending falls. A weak peso will make oil even more expensive.
6. Prospect of higher inflation – as credit growth has been very strong along with remittances flowing in
7. Demand for yield – a lot of Filipinos have bought apartments but are just sitting on them. The problem is that if they have any financial problem they might find them back on the market. one can expect that some of them are in over their heads.
8. Supply – I don’t think local developers will cool off on projects – I think they think the global economy will recover, and its true that chinese investors will increase as investment out of China is relaxed. But I see that as a longer term influence
The value of those remittances will increase as the peso falls – but this will be offset by higher oil prices in local peso terms. So I believe there will be net selling. I don’t see a collapse in property prices though….more likely just a stagnant market.
